Antares Field Guide Training Centre has changed the focus of the business. We made the decision to stop with our Guide Training Courses which we ran for almost 20 years and instead we are going to rejuvenate and upgrade the facilities and open as a self-catering lodge later in 2019. The lodge will be renamed Antares Bush Lodge and Safaris and we hope to be open for business in the 2nd half of 2019 after all the renovations and upgrades have been completed. Watch this space for opening specials and news on our developments
Antares Bush Lodge is situated on the Grietjie Private Nature Reserve. The reserve falls within the Balule Game Reserve and the Greater Kruger National Park. The reserve is 3000 Ha in extent and we have traversing access over a further 3000Ha. All this makes for an exceptional experience within a Big 5 area. We have access to almost 10kms of the Olifants river and regular sightings of elephant, lion and buffalo occur along with many other general game species and a bird list of over 300 species.
