Are you tired of having been in lockdown and need to get away, then check availability and book into the camp.


A great special opportunity for our fellow South Africans who can’t travel abroad, until the end of June 2021 we are running a special of 50% off to have the opportunity to book out the camp exclusively. You don’t need to travel far to experience the magic Africa has and in fact we often ignore what is on our own doorstep.


Book directly with us to take advantage of this great saving.


For 1-2 people you can secure the exclusive use of the bush camp on a self-catering basis for just

R4000/night, minimum 2 night stay.


For 3-4 people you can secure the exclusive use of the bush camp on a self-catering basis for just

R5000/night, minimum 2 night stay.


If there are 5 or more of you then the rate increases by R1000/additional person up to a maximum of R9 000. Should you book from April-June you can enjoy the 50% discount using the South African special and still enjoy that opportunity to travel while the international travel restrictions are still in force.

R9 000/night for the entire camp


If you have missed the opportunity to take advantage of the 50% special offer don’t despair, we will be continuing with a winter warmer special for July and August with a 25% discount.

We want to look after you and are doing all we can to try and make our facilities available to our fellow South Africans.


Antares Bush Camp is an exclusive self-catering establishment within the Grietjie Private Nature Reserve and Greater Kruger National Park.


On  offer are game drives and game walks, the chance of viewing the Big 5 reserve as well as additional activities in the area.


Come and enjoy our unique waterhole hide allowing guests an opportunity to view the wildlife up close and from a ground level perspective.


If what you are looking for is an affordable break away in an exclusive facility then Antares is the place for you and your guests.


Antares will be running a photographic competition over the next 12 months and winners will have the opportunity to return to the camp for free or at discounted rates. Details are available under the


Umgede Hide page

Some background information to where we are and where we came from

Over the last few months the camp has been going through a facelift and refurbishment and as a result has not been available for bookings. As with the entire tourism industry in South Africa we are uncertain as to when we will be able to open for bookings again but we are confident that once tourism is open for business the camp will be fully completed and ready to welcome you all to experience our brand new product. We will advise of the exact dates once we are in a position to do so.


Antares started off as a well-respected and reputable training camp for Field Guides and had produced some of the best guides now found operating in other lodges across southern Africa. In 2018, a decision was taken to change the focus of the business and we decided to open up as a self-catering camp. Catering for a maximum of eight guests ensures that we continue to strive for that personalised attention we promised our trainees.


The camp has undergone a major transformation and as with butterflies that emerge from a chrysalis the same can be said for our camp. We are super chuffed with the new look and hope that you will come and visit and see for yourselves what it looks and feels like.


Covid-19 or Corona virus disease

is a global pandemic disease that has affected us all. The tourism industry has been especially hard hit with the travel bans.


In accordance with local regulations we are now required to provide a link to the national Covid-19 website on all .za websites. Please visit this link should you need to be advised of the latest situation in South Africa,
