We were blown away during our two-night stay at Leopard Mountain. From start to finish the experience was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. The rooms are superb (especially with a plunge-pool on hot afternoons) and the staff are excellent. The rangers are extremely knowledgeable and accommodating, and the variety of game is good. With two drives per day and... More

Very good lodge set high up a hillside. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and each with there very own splash pool (non-heated). Meals in the main lodge were lovely, held at a communal table. Game drives and guides were professional and informative, with large selection of animals seen. Certainly would recommend this lodge which also was good value for money.

I can't say enough about this amazing Lodge. It is so beautiful and they offer so many suprising extras: champagne welcome, post-Game greeting with cocktails, in-room picnic baskets.
