The recent switch to a Sunday A la Carte Lunch Menu is a welcome change. We noticed that more items have been added since we visited last. One for the more adventurous is the lightly seared Salmon with an Eastern Green Thai flavour, delish, a...More

Leopard Lodge is one of Hartbeespoort's hidden gems, but it is so worth it to drive all the way up the mountain! (The tarred road is easily accessible for all vehicles.) The food is very nice, the staff usually friendly, though a bit slow, and...More

The lodge is situated high up the Magaliesberg mountain just below the solid rock face. The downward flowing gorges are softened only by a blanket of shrubs, grasses and trees which have grown over millennia, watered by the purest, cleanest water imaginable and today left to graze on by countless antelope resident on the farm. It is only when you drive in the gate of Leopard Lodge that you realise what has been left behind. The main lodge building houses the reception rooms, restaurant, bar, conference rooms and large verandah with adjoining boma. The lodge has a peaceful atmosphere situated near Hartbeespoort Dam although it is just a short 55km drive from the hustle and bustle of Sandton and 60km from Pretoria. So, pop in for a visit - come and experience our fantastic view of the dam and the valley below - wow! Our restaurant boasts a delightful A la Carte Menu and full bar service is available. We cater for weddings, conferences and functions.
