On the positive side - great view of the park. You can't beat it. There is a small water pond, which attracts all kind of animals, including elephants and leopards. In the evening there is a show with meat left in front of the terrace and leopards coming to enjoy the food. The rooms are with old furniture and on... More

For all of you who really want to see a leopard this is the place to be. They actually hang meet out side at 5 o clock and a leopard comes from no where and starts to eat it. Anyway that not all the place has a swimming pool that is next to a telescope that points towards the rhino... More

We arrived there after our Safari, and the first thing we noticed was the great location of this lodge. The building looks really nice and the rooms were okay. We had some dinner which was okay, but not more than that. The staff said they will place a piece of meat just outside the restaurant, to attract wildlife such as... More

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
