Retreats

Antbear Lodge offers various retreat options with accommodation in mountain view suits, garden view suits and also boasts a luxury cave. This Lodge is one of those smaller intimate kind of places which has been lovingly put together. The natural setting of the accommodation is stunning and we managed to capture this beauty with an atmosphere of comfort and ease. The cottages are artistically appointed and individually designed. The fact that we are a small place makes for an intimate and personal retreat experience. Each of the accommodation units is different and are decorated with uniquely eccentric and artistic wooden furniture.

Antbear Lodge is a bit off the beaten track and is more of an insider tip than just another retreat centre. We cater for small intimate groups and never have more than 44 at the time. It is a laid back lovingly cared for kind of place where you feel a sense of happiness and peace. We can provide all the services and accommodation for your retreat. Situated 4 hours from Johannesburg and 2 hours from Durban with easy access from the N3. Antbear Lodge is easy to get to but has the feeling of being far from the madding crowd where you feel like the middle of nowhere.  This wonderful place for group retreats offers spectacular views, vast spaces, wild winds, rain, sunshine, clouds and rainbows and in all of this inn an atmosphere of tranquillity and peace. Retreat groups can book the whole lodge for exclusive use. The lodge can accommodate 44 persons in 15 units.

We have hosted yoga retreats, spiritual retreats, mediation retreats, art retreats, reiki workshops to mention but a few. What goes really well with the retreats clients is that we have a labyrinth in the garden.

Antbear Lodge has a spacious dining room with a wood-burning fireplace, a comfortable lounge with a fireplace and spectacular views, a breakaway meeting room, a large veranda and a large function venue for retreats, team building or training activities. We provide excellent meals and will fit our menu to your expectations.

Meals are part of the real surprises that Antbear Lodge has to offer. With our farm to plate concept, homegrown cooking is part of the deal. We use vegetables from our own organic garden, milk from our cows, eggs from our chickens, we bake our own bread and we even make our own cheese. How food tastes has so much to do with the associations we make and if you would like to hear about our journey to self sufficiency and sustainability we would love it.

We believe in sustainable tourism and social responsibility. We live in a spectacularly beautiful place. If we want to keep our way of life that it surely follows that we must do everything in our power to contribute to the upliftment and prosperity in this rural area.
