Wow, what an amazing experience. Ian our host is one of the best, so much knowledge and experience. The Lodge is amazing and the Hide is out of this world. Our Kids really enjoyed it and Ian was so informative with them. The swimming pool is just what you need on a hot summer day. The sightings were incredible especially the elephants up close and personal at the hide, the leopard sighting was just unbelievable, the leopard tortoise and boomslang was a bonus just to mention a few. I definitely recommend this for any Occasion. Thanx Ian
I can highly recommend Antares Bush Camp for families and friends looking for a bush getaway with an exceptional Hide experience perfect for photographers. Antares has set the standard for underground hide design. It's large and cosy at the same time, beautifully finished and furnished with power sockets to charge your equipment, a fridge and kettle for that amazing first cup of coffee first thing in the morning waiting for the wildlife to arrive in perfect golden morning light. If you really want to and are determined to get specific night time photography opportunities you can spend all day and night in this hide comfortably (trust me!)
The lodge is beautifully built and has all the amenities you could need, a plunge pool for those hot days and a boma area overlooking the waterhole so you can enjoy the fireside chats while still keeping an eye on anything coming down for a drink.
A lovely getaway into the bush. Experience amazing wildlife and bird watching. We had a wonderful time relaxing next to or in the pool. We will most definitely be back. Thank you Ian for an unforgettable stay.
The place simply rocks! Ian despite the late arrival (10 pm!) came to pick us up from the gate with his Defender jeep (by our car it could have take up to 30-40 minutes after crossing the gate to reach the camp area). Thanks to him we've had a night safari through the reserve in his jeep! Very helpful and I'm looking forward to visit the place again hopefully soon! The place itself was so beautiful I really wished I could stay at least 2-3 days and just enjoy it. The common room is really beautiful, the pool area is really nice and the bush around the place is just awesome! In the morning a lion can be staying just out of the rooms - literally behind the rooms door! :) A must on the visit list!
