The Antbear Guesthouse, originally built in the 1940's and recently restored by sculptor Bruce Attwood, gets its name from the previous resident, who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration. 

Eccentrically refurbished using wood gathered in the surrounding valleys, the Antbear combines comfort with a unique environment.

Using a fifty-year-old outhouse for the basic framework, Bruce created a unique guesthouse and home in the rural hinterland of Kwazulu-Natal. The original structure which belonged to a farmer friend, consisted of two traditional rondavels, or thatch covered huts, connected by a stoep, or veranda with an overhead trellis. 

Perched on a kind of natural platform overlooking the bushmanís river, the house has panoramic views of the Drakensberg Mountains.

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. Participate in the farm life, feed the calves or watch the milking. Drive up to Giants Castle, the Champagne valley or Mont Aux Sources. Walk in the Drakensberg on day trips or even stay in a cave overnight.

Outstanding Views: On a good day the view stretches out for 120 km to the Amphitheater but a normal day is only 90 km as far as Cathedral Peak. Infect, i am yet to see a more spectacular view from any accommodation anywhere.
