I stayed at Antares for a week in mid-April this year and had an amazing time! We saw elephants, waterbuck, giraffe, impalas, warthog, kudu and civet from Umgede Hide, as well as 46 different bird species! The camp is super comfy and I can't wait to come back later this year...

We spent two nights at Antares Bush Camp and from the warm welcome, until the departing goodbye, we really had the most relaxing and enjoyable time.
The Umgede Hide was definitely the highlight of our stay. To spent time up close and personal with nature, in all it’s splendour, is definitely something any nature lover should do. I’m not a professional photographer at all, but really enjoyed myself in this one of a kind, underground photography hide, I can just imagine how a professional photographer would enjoy it!
We also had the privilege to do a game drive with Ian, owner of Antares, and we were amazed about his knowledge and respect for nature. It was amazing to be guided by a guide, that not only cares about the Big 5, but also is keen to stop and discuss the smaller creatures, birds and trees.
Ian and his team has got a lot planned for the future of Antares, keep an eye on his blog and live feeds.
Our overall experience at Antares was extremely pleasant and we will definitely return and would recommend it to any true nature lover!

What an incredible privilege to be able to stay here. The hide is built in a way to give you an eye level view with the ground. To be so close to wildlife and to be able to hear the amazing sounds of both the animals and the environment is truly something which creates great memories. Thank you Antares for our beautiful stay.
