Drakensberg pet friendly accommodation


The pet friendly experience

Antbear Lodge is the leading pet-friendly accommodation in the Drakensberg. Beautiful, vast views of the Drakensberg with plenty of ground for our dogs to roam. Walk for hours. Your dogs will be happy with lots of dams to swim in and horses to discover. Some of the accommodation units at Antbear Lodge have their own fenced in gardens where your dog will be safe.

Antbear Lodge pet friendly mountain view suite

Accommodation facilities

We offer a pet friendly mountain view suite as well as a pet friendly garden view suite that each have their own fenced off gardens. Of course if you don't require a fenced off garden well then you could choose any accommodation option offered at Antbear lodge as pet friendly.


Dog walks on the farm

We offer a number of mowed hiking trails on the farm where you can take your dog for a walk off lead. Trails are from 40 mins to 4 hours in length. Just watch out if you come across our donkeys. They don't like dogs as much as we do.


Nice to know

Explore some of the highlights of the Drakensberg and rest assured your dogs will be safe if left behind with us. We don't have a policy that requires your pet to be on a lead (although on arrival it is advisable) We have sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, cats, horses, donkeys and cows, 2 pigs and a dog of our own.
