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. See some of the before and after images below. As we progress through the rebuild we will add more photos until such time as we are ready and able to upload the new camp in all its glory.
