My parents and I visited Leopard Mountain for two nights. The stay was outstanding from the safari trip to the food and accommodation. The service was very attentive and nothing was an effort for the staff. We would definitely go back, a place to visit for sure.

We spent a lovely weekend at Leopard Mountain. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are delightful and the food was delicious. The game drives were special as the guide on our vehicle was knowledgeable but also keen to learn from some experienced guests who knew their birds, butterflies and trees.

Had a magical experience yet again with our weekend break away to Leopard Mountain Lodge. We enjoyed good food and wine in the beautiful bush veld despite one of the worst droughts in KZN.

We loved every moment there. We had our own mini game drive on the way to the lodge, seeing monkeys, baboons, impala and zebra. The lodge is stylish, very well run and the chalet was superb. Spacious, comfortable and with everything one would need. There were wonderful views from the balcony, the plunge pool was heaven, and the hammock was...

We visited for the last part of a 3 week trip to SA and it was undoubtedly the highlight. A magical experience in a beautiful setting in luxurious accommodation, with fantastic, friendly and helpful staff.

My wife and I visited with two Canadian friends in March 2017. The lodge is very accessible from Durban - the entrance to the reserve is right off the N2 (about 3 hour drive) and is situated 13km into the reserve. We spent 3 relaxing nights at the lodge. It offers a high quality "safari" experience but without being pretentious....

A truly wonderful experience. The opportunity to see a host of animals, large and small, whilst enjoying elegance, comfort and outstanding service.

We occupied 2 chalets - very nice, large and with small splash pool - during 4 nights. Unfortunately it turned out to rain (pour) all 4 days but we still did most of the morning and evening drives and saw the majority of the animals. Due to the road conditions, the drives are limited to the main roads - turns...

Our two-night stay at this small game lodge was memorable. The atmosphere is one of a private house-party rather than a commercial establishment. The level of professionalism was extremely high.
