Why not book accommodation in this delightful little guesthouse in KwaZulu-Natal South Africa in the foothills of the Drakensberg.This thatch cottage is a charming and romantic retreat for any visitor with itís wooden interiors. The name of this cottage comes from a previous "resident" who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration. Here you will find that comfort & hospitality are part of the whole experience of The Antbear. A truly unique stay. A revisit will be a must as Antbear has a perfect recipe for relaxation. Here you have the option to have all your meals, bed and breakfast or to self-cater. And meals are part of the surprises at the Antbear has on offer.
Here you can also have an opportunity to participate in farm activities, enjoy a sun downer at the dam, view snowcapped mountains in the winter time while having dinner & wine beside a warm crackling fire in the lounge. This cottage is within an hours drive from most Drakensberg resorts. Situated on a hill with breathtaking views of the mountains and surrounds this country guesthouse overlooks the Bushman's river, which rises in the high Drakensberg near Giants castle and meets the Tugela north east of the small town of Weenen. There is lots to do and see in the area from horse riding, game viewing, bushman paintings, hiking, fishing and lots more. The midlands meander, a craft route almost beginning on our doorstep offers wonderful arts and crafts.
Meals are part of the real surprises that the Antbear has on offer, as home made cooking is an essential part of the menu. We like to use our own home grown organic vegetables and if we haven't got, then we lean heavily on those local providers with similar attitudes to our own. We both like cooking and are up to changing just about anything to suit tastes or philosophies. Our cooking experience is in part a journal, a record of events and memories expressed in recipes. In the course of our travels we have filed away many recipes and with them images of people and places and their lives. How food tastes has much to do with the associations we make and if you would like to hear the tales of our meals we would love to tell them.
