World Summit on sustainable development - South Africa accommodation Delegates to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg South Africa have a superb opportunity to experience the wonders of our African wilds. Pre- and post-conference tours to the magnificent Drakensberg mountains are almost a necessity since you are so near. We too support sustainable development and are trying to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our life. We have built a house using straw bales, recycle where ever an opportunity raises its head and grow our own organic vegetables. We have started a small eco-tourism project where local people produce crafts to uplift the living standard in our immediate area. So come and visit our little guesthouse and see for yourself how sustainability can be achieved practically. Of course we are very interested in meeting people who have similar ideas and are willing to share them. If we can help you tailor your itinerary to end before, or begin after, the World Summit on Sustainable Development then please feel free to email us and together we will arrange your travels to fit in with World Summit dates. And hopefully your visit to our contribution to sustainable development.

Our guesthouse ( The Antbear ) offers hospitable accommodation in the Drakensberg mountains, KwaZulu Natal South Africa.  Eccentrically refurbished using wood gathered in the surrounding valleys, this rustic accommodation combines comfort with its unique environment. The Antbear gets its name from the previous resident, who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration. Perched on a kind of natural platform overlooking the Bushman's river,  the house has panoramic views of the Drakensberg Mountains for 160 Km. 

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.
