The tents look exactly like in the internet photos. The staff was very friendly and helpful (loved the hot water bottles at night). I loved that even though it's self catering, they have a chef to cook for you. Pity I couldn't take Ezrom (the chef) home with me. Thanks for making our stay enjoyable.

What a beautiful camp. We were looked after from the minute we were collected at the bottom to till the time we were dropped back. Our room was beautiful, comfortable. The staff are friendly and love looking after you. The game is amazing and Allan and Lyndsay go out of their way to ensure you have a memorable experience

A wonderful game farm in between the mountains. Unfortunately I cannot give it five out of five as it was freezing in the tents. The tents are lovely, well kitted out, but being a tent build on a concrete stand it becomes a freezer in winter time. The lodge does provide a hot water bottle, but it is the air...

The tented rooms were very comfortable with excellent service. The chefs that are made available to the self catering is a stroke of brilliance and creates a very relaxed atmosphere. The communal area also has one spectacular view through the valley.

Alan and his team have created a truly exceptional experience. Our tented unit was beautifully set right near the stream and with wonderful views of the mountains/cliffs right in front of you. Our unit was tastefully decorated with luxurious linen, king size bed, all set above the ground on wooden stilts with a patio too. The highlight of the unit...

We recently spent 3 nights at Black Leopard Camp with our 3 children. The tents are fabulous, the beds are superb and the outdoor bathrooms are heaven. The view is lovely, however, you do need to look directly up at the cliff faces for the view as it is not a sweeping and open view from the tents. The location...

As soon as you drive in the gate, you're welcomed by an incredible view of the mountainous and surprisingly green landscape which is absolutely breathtaking! Beautiful animals all over. Even more insanely majestic views which engulf the camp site! You can't help but switch off and just appreciate. The staff are fantastic. Especially Dylan. Gives fantastic insight with enlightening enthusiasm!...

Stayed for 2 nights with 6 friends on their first nights in Africa. From the moment we were met and then descended into the valley and up the other side to the camp we were informed, entertained, nourished and watered in comfort. Not sure when a leopard was last seen, but this did not in any way detract from our...
