Conny is the passion behind the animals, the garden and the spirit of the lodge. Conny moved here with Andrew from Germany almost 20 years ago and its unlikely she will ever leave voluntarily.



Andrew in another life developed software and Antbear Lodge has been an alternative to leaving the rat race and learning to create things with his hands and less of a keyboard. Andrew like to travel and like to talk to guests.
