This was our second visit to Leopard Mountain during the past three years, and this time it was even better! The lodge is located on a mountain, which gives you a spectacular view over the valley. The beautiful chalets are very private, each with it's own veranda and plunge pool. A perfect place to relax with a good book between...

We had an amazing four night stay at Leopard Mountain. Neither of us had experienced safari before but the trip lived up to and exceeded every expectation. The accommodation was superb – our own private hut with spectacular views, balcony with hammock and plunge pool (very welcoming after a hot game drive). Staff were friendly, helpful and fun.
