Gourmet hideaway in the Drakensberg

Gourmet hideaway in the Drakensberg mountains A Gourmet hideaway is not merely about eating and eating is not merely a material pleasure said Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.  The Antbear Guesthouse will help to give your moral and travel plans  a delicious boost with its delightful thatched and wooden interiors and gourmet chef it is just perfect place for that gourmet hideaway.

Relax, enjoy the view, take walks around the farm and savor the delicious food prepared by Andrew and Conny. There is a lot to be seen and done in the area. Experience some exquisite bushman rock art at Kamberg or drive up to Giants Castle and spend some time in the mountains. Day walks or overnight stays in the caves or mountain huts are both possible and very worthwhile. For those of you who are fanatical about trout then you'll find yourself in the right area. The safari feeling can be found in the Weenen or Spieonkop game reserves and of course the midlands meander offers plenty of opportunity to buy some local craftwork or just have a nice drive.

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.
