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 camp later in 2019. The camp will be renamed Antares Bush Camp 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.

Antares Bush Camp 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.
Although the camp is situated in a Big 5 reserve and is open to the Greater Kruger National Park, we prefer to offer our guests an all-round bush experience where the magic of birds, and small animals is as important if not more so than the expected Big 5 sightings.
Our guides have years of experience in being able to interpret the tracks and signs left behind overnight, or to point out the distant bird calls and allow you, the guest, to appreciate the entire ecological system and beyond to the stars at night.
