We had such a wonderful stay. The customer service and experience, attention to detail, location and views are unparalleled! The park also has plenty of animal life and the guides are very knowledgeable. We will be back!

My husband and I recently completed a very enjoyable stay at Leopard Mountain. The accommodation was very comfortable. We need to return to sample the plunge pool as the weather was relatively cold and cloudy during most of our visit but we were pleased that some much needed rain fell! The Lodge offers good value for money compared to some...

What an absolutely stunning lodge. The accommodations are superb with a private plunge pool and gorgeous views. The staff attentive and helpful in every way. Love the private little walk in wine cellar to select your own wine. The dinner was tasty, not gourmet, but the setting and atmosphere wonderful. Breakfast was great. Superb game drive with our guide that...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the lodge for one night and we couldn't fault it. We had an unbelievable evening and morning game drive, the staff, food and accommodation were all delightful. Could not recommend this attraction more! Thanks so much for our stay.

Meeting a large male lion on the walkway to out chalet gave me a totally new perspective on Leopard Mountain. The lodge is surrounded by electrical fencing but somehow 4 lions got inside. Also when the lions were supposedly removed, they obviously miscounted by one – the one I met. This is also the only lodge where we were not...
