This place was the worst hotel we've ever seen during our 8 days/7 nights safari. Really, overall experience was extremely awful. Awful food (eggs in salad smelled like spoiled). Awful drinks (don't try order cocktails, or they'll be the worst cocktails in your life. Barman don't know what ingredients singapore sling should consists of). Awful service - there was a... More

Before going I wasn't sure I approved of the leopard tree. now U'm under the impression its the leopards taking advantage of humans rather than the other way around. The hotel was clean and tidy and the food better than some others in the same group. Drinks & water were expensive compared to our main hotel. Service was good ,... More

My wife and I spent a night here and we fell in love with the scenery, the setting of the lodge and how beautiful the place was. We loved the leopard watching and the lodge was clean and the rooms decent. We however felt as though we were requesting for too much when we asked for anything, the staff serve... More

Guaranteed sighting of leopard up to 4 of them! Plenty of buffalo,elephant,baboons,gazelle and birds around waterhole. Food is ok There is a very good pool overlooking rhino valley with good...

If you really really want to see a leopard you should go there. Though I do not think it is responsible to feed a wild animal every night, so I would not go back there. Apart from that the lodge is nothing too special. We stayed for 1 night and it is ok, but we stayed at nicer places during... More

This was a modest but nice hotel. We did see the leopards at the dinner "show", which was interesting. The food was fairly good, the room was tidy, the staff was friendly. The bar made the absolute worst margarita I've ever had in my life, but otherwise everything was nice and the views were great.

This lodge is set in a very nice location - unlike Rhino Valley Lodge, this does have a view of Rhino valley and the sanctuary. There is a waterhole that attracts buffalo and elephant. They put food out for leopard every night and you are effectively guarenteed a sighting. The rooms are ok. They are comfortable but nothing special and... More

Please spend some money on a face lift for the rooms. This was probably a great lodge in its hey day but that was 30 years ago. Basic rooms. No air con, tired bed linen and towels. Just about acceptable food and drink. Disappointing experience was expecting more.

Rooms very poor and awful beds. Not sure when room was last cleaned. Food okay though and we only really ate and slept there for one night. Leopard feeding was interesting, but I have a feeling this was a bit rigged, and not sure about it. Seems there are better lodges, but we got this one
