Property's Favourite Review
We stayed at Leopard Hill for 3 nights, in the family tent, which was very clean and tastefully furnished. We also enjoyed star gazing at night from the comfort of our bed which was an amazing experience. All of the staff were so welcoming and we were made to feel at home right away. The food was delicious and chef Robert genuinely had a love for cooking and took great pride in the meals that he served. Our guide Nash was phenomenal! She has great experience and knowledge. The conservancy is filled with wildlife and every corner we turned there was something new! The lodge is very clean, they adhered to Covid protocol and followed government guidelines well. We would definitely recommend this lodge and we will surely be back.

We spent 2.5 weeks in Africa. Three nights at Leopard Hill. This was our favorite place. The amazing staff, the rooms with their incredible views and audible nocturnal wildlife, the delicious food…. Perfection. Kimberly was our driver/guide. We fell in love with her. She’s smart, talented, kind, accommodating and so very sweet. What a delight.

We stayed at Leopard Hill for 4 nights for the start of our honeymoon and had the most special and memorable experience. This is not just a Safari lodge, this is, as William the manager said when we arrived, "a home away from home". All the staff at Leopard Hill feel like one big family, and we felt entirely welcomed into that family. All the staff are so friendly and hospitable, they go above and beyond to make your stay really special. Chef Robert made us the most delicious meals, we felt utterly spoilt and every meal felt such a treat. The waiting staff were so attentive and professional, Ivy had the most lovely manner and is so kind. Our driver Caleb was fantastic, as was Kimberly who stepped in for a few of our drives, both are so knowledgeable and really listen to what your interests are and do their best to make sure your experience is the best it can be. We saw elephants with babies, lion prides with cubs, a leopard, cheetah, hippos, crocodiles...every drive brought new sights and experiences. David T who also guided us on most of our drives was also amazing, he is so knowledgeable and really took great care of us right from the start, we loved our walking safari with him too, it was great to see things from another perspective and stretch our legs after many game drives! He taught us lots about the flora and fauna and animal tracks and bones as well as spotting wildlife. We felt very safe on our hike with the great team of staff guards escorting us also. On our last night we were lucky to have the camp to ourselves as the only guests left, and the staff went to great lengths to make it a special experience for us to ensure we didn't feel lonely! We all sat around the firepit and learnt about the Maasai culture and history which was fascinating. After dinner all the staff came together to perform a traditional dance which was great to see, especially seeing everyone so happy and enjoying themselves. We really cannot fault our stay, it was the most special honeymoon stay, and a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives. We will be recommending to all of our friends and family and hope they will be able to visit one day too. So thank you again to all of the staff at Leopard Hill who made our stay so wonderful, you are all fantastic people!

Located in naboisho conservancy. Their vehicle picks you from the entrance of the conservancy as private vehicles are not allowed in the conservancy. Leopard hill had a warm vibe to the place. The staff did their job to perfection, always smiling and ready to help where needed. The food was delicious and well presented. The restaurant and rooms overlook a giant fig tree in the wild. The magical vibe of this place seeps in slowly and it leaves a sweet everlasting imprint in your memory.....Its not a lodge/hotel/accommodation an Experience!!!

We visited the Leopard Hill Camp in August 2022 as a couple with a young toddler (1.5 yrs old) for 4 nights/5 days out of our 6 day safari holiday. From the get-go, we felt so much at home at Leopard Hill camp as they welcomed us into the place as one of their own. The camp managers William and Agnes were great at explaining everything about the camp and also took care of any special requests. Stay: The tent we had was breathtaking, with a huge spacious room, great indoor and outdoor showers (with hot water and amazing water pressure), outside seating and a firepit and also an adjacent tent for lounging. Our tent had a watering hole just outside so we could see plenty of giraffes, zebras, gazelles throughout. The room steward Daniel was super helpful with our requests, especially due to our young child. Relaxation: We enjoyed massages by Sinta on a morning off, which really helped relax the muscles after multiple game drives. We also requested for some yoga mats to have good relaxing yoga practice outside the tent. Food: The food was really great, the chef had a different interesting 3 course menu was each meal and everything we tried was delicious. The breakfasts after the morning game drives were sumptous. The staff at the restaurant - Mashipei and Ivy were always kind to help us out with the little one whenever we ate and brought him special food if needed. Gamedrives & the reserve: We had majority of our safari experience in Naibosho conservancy, and then one day in Masai Mara National Park. Naibosho is rich and diverse and has a beautiful terrain. We visited a pride of lions almost everyday and saw most of the animals here. The guides (Manfred, David and John) were very knowledgable and excellent at finding new things for us to see every day. Overall, it was the best holiday we've taken so far and I would definitely go back to this camp to relive this experience and meet the warm friendly people we met here.

We visited Leopard Hill for three nights as part of a seven days safari experience. Leopard Hill was our favourite resort during this week; one of the most fantastic experiences we've had. Elegant, very friendly, luxurious, yet prestine. Excellent tents with balconies, built on poles. And the staff working there was nearly overeager to serve you in whatever way, always with a big smile on their face. Great food,

What an amazing lodge and game reserve. Booked this for part of our 40th anniversary celebrations two years ago which was cancelled due to Covid. Was worth the wait. Have never been to such a place with staff and service like we got for the three days we were there, from the manger Agnes to the chefs, waiters and waitresses, the butlers and the guards. Made our holiday one of the most memorable we have had. The guide we had for our safari, Kimberley, was truly fantastic and so knowledgeable about the animals and their habits. We were also lucky enough to be taken to a Masi village to meet up with a tribe and visit where they live. An experience I will never forget of meeting these beautiful people. Would love to return one day. Would highly recommend this magical place with their luxurious tents.
