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.
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.

About the Area
The village was formerly the site of a prisoner-of-war camp established by the South African forces in 1915 to house German soldiers captured during the First World War. The inmates initially lived in tents but later built clay- brick houses. The number of prisoners initially reached 1500, but after all the volunteer soldiers were sent home, their numbers in the camp remained at 1200. In May 1919 all the soldiers were repatriated and the camp was closed. A plaque marks the site today and it is demarcated as a historical heritage site.
The area west of Aus is noted for its herd of feral horses living in the desert. They drink at an artificial water hole at Garub Pan where a blind has been erected to enable tourists to watch the animals without disturbing them.

About our Rest Camp
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.
