Antares Bush Camp & Safaris

Antares Bush Camp & Safaris 

This small exclusive bush camp is set within the open system of the Greater Kruger National Park. In the northern section of the 60 000 Ha Balule Nature Reserve is an area of land that had its origins in small scale agriculture. The Balule Nature Reserve is made up of several regions of which Grietjie is one of the founding members, and is bordered to the north by the town of Phalaborwa and in the south by Hoedspruit. To the east lie the Klaserie and Timbavati reserves and the Kruger National Park, while in the west the R40 National road creates a logical boundary that has effectively become the western boundary of the Greater Kruger National Park.

With the reserve part of the open system now, Antares Bush Camp & Safaris can boast almost all the game species that you could expect to find in the Kruger National Park, although species such as eland, roan antelope and a few others are highly unlikely to be encountered due to their habitat preferences. Regular sightings of elephant and lions occur at the waterhole just in front of the camp along with a large variety of general game and birdlife. Our bird list is close to 300 species and rarities such as Pel’s fishing owl, African finfoot and a few other can be seen along the river. With the development of Umgede hide at the water’s edge there is a great opportunity to get close to the action. With free Wi-Fi available throughout the camp, our guests will have the luxury of being able to video their favourite sightings and send them home to their jealous families and friends.

Our Accommodation

Each of the five bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom with outside shower allowing you to enjoy those starry nights after a magical game drive where you may have been lucky enough to see an elusive leopard. One of the bedrooms is set up as a family room, a queen bed for mum and dad and at the other end an adjoining room with a bunk bed, ensuring that even families with younger children can enjoy our hospitality.

Inside the main building guests can make use of the large kitchen equipped with a large electric oven and 5-ring gas hob. Alternatively, Antares offers you the opportunity to request a chef at an additional fee who will come on site and prepare all your meals for you, allowing you to relax and enjoy the bush to its fullest. You will still be responsible for providing all the food and beverage requirements for your party. Please note that as we are not a licensed facility, all guests will need to supply their own beverages.

About the Area

The Grietjie region, which is where we are located, is a 3000 Ha reserve that had its humble beginnings as a farming community. Over the past 20 years or so the region has transformed from an agricultural background to one that is well-sought after as a Big 5 Nature Reserve. Our boundary fences have all been removed and we have expanded our traversing area which now covers almost 7500 Ha and includes over 10kms of Olifant’s River frontage. The vegetation is a mixture of Marula/Knobthorn savannah veld and Mopane veld. There are a number of small granite/syenite kopjies (small hill made up of rocky boulders) on the reserve and the largest hill is named “Grietjie Berg” after which the reserve gets its name.

Our winter months produce a comfortable environment to explore the bush in, with dry and relatively warm days. We don’t experience extremely cold conditions although the clear skies at night can make the temperature drop a little especially nearer the river. During the summer we expect to receive our annual rainfall between October and April and the day time temperatures can get very high, but this just gives you the perfect excuse to laze away in the plunge pool while you watch the animals come down to the waterhole to quench their thirst.

The Brandberg Mountain is 2 573 meters above sea level making it Namibia’s highest point. It derives its name from the glowing colours it reflects during sunsets. The main attraction is the White Lady, one of more than 45 000 rock painting in the area. A 1-hour hike will take you to what is widely agreed to be a bushman painting at least 2 000 years old. In 1955 it was described as a “white lady’’ by Henri Breuil, who made the connection to paintings he saw in Greece. Hellenistic influences have been excluded in its origin but the name stuck. The name is also misleading as the painting is that of a male hunter.

Activities 

Art Gallery 

A collection of watercolour paintings created by local Namibian artists, portray the beauty of the surrounding landscapes and the wildlife that reside there. The artworks are displayed within the dining area and all items are for sale.

Museum 

In 1486, the early Portuguese explorer, Diogo Cao, erected a padrao or cross on a small rocky outcrop along the desolate and unforgiving shores that hug the Skeleton Coast. Battered by sudden squalls and fierce windstorms, blasted by the shifting desert sands and baked under a relentless sun, the cross remained undisturbed by Europeans for four centuries. Cape Cross has witnessed many a shipwreck and maritime disaster and is home to a replica padrao that stands on a terraced platform within the seal reserve.

The museum, within the lodge, houses many remnants of past settlers who relentlessly withstood the harsh desert elements to mine rich deposits of fossil guano and to harvest seal skins. The first railway line in Namibia was established at Cape Cross and visitors to the museum can delve in its historical value. Souvenirs, postcards, small mementos and the history of Cape Cross in book form can all be purchased in the museum.

Cape Cross Seal Reserve 

The Cape Cross Seal Reserve is a protected area managed by the Namibian government. It is home to one of the largest Cape Fur Seal colonies in the world with numbers reaching up to 100 000 animals. It derives its name from the padrão (stone cross) that was initially erected by Diogo Cão in 1486.
