The customer service is awesome, all staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are specious, homely, clean and well equipped, with mini bar, decent coffee and well need air-conditioning for the low-veld climate. Great breakfast with breathtaking views of the surroundings. We would highly recommend Leaves lodge for business and private travels.

We booked at the last minute to watch a Springbok rugby match and I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, as I am always a little concerned when there is a vacancy and everyone else is fully booked. So, what a pleasant surprise to find this beautiful B&B tucked at the top of a Nelspruit hillside. The staff are welcoming... More
