What a lovely place to end our honeymoon. Unfortunately we had the weather against us the whole time and weren't able to expire cd all of what leopard mountain offer. Never the less we were spoilt to a private dinner by our awesome game ranger. We will defiantly have to return to take a trip to the hide and see... More

The attention to detail by every member of the team at Leopards Mountain ensures that your time at the lodge is absolutely fantastic. The food is delicious & served with wines from their extensive private cellar collection. The thatched lodges are the ultimate in luxury. Beautiful linens, four posters draped with mosquito nets ( not that we saw a single... More

We spent two nights in this magical game lodge. After 6 nights at another nice lodge (won through an charity auction) Leopard Mountain showed us what a top notch lodge should be. They responded quickly to my requests for information prior to getting there -- and provided good transportation recommendations to get to the lodge (we picked Trinity Travel). The... More

My Husband and I were lucky enough to spend 5 nights at Leopard Mountain for our honeymoon. We had an absolutely amazing time, the lodge and rooms have the best views of the reserve. They are really well kept, every night we were taken back to our rooms after dinner where Sherry and chocolates/sweets awaited us. This was such a... More

My wife and I did extensive research prior to booking a safari experience in South Africa. We decided on Leopard Mountain since it looked like you got a luxury experience without a huge price tag compared to the lodges around Kruger. We are happy to report that the lodge delivered on every level. The room was extremely comfortable with amazing... More

A wonderful 4 days! Friendly, pleasant staff who made you feel special every minute of the day. Wonderful animal sightings, up close but always in a safe situation. And the cherry on the top...... Saw wild dog after a 30 year search. Stunning views from the lodge and accommodation elegant and comfortable.

Leopard Mountain proved to be a delightful surprise! Treated by friends to a few days away, we went with little expectation (having a long history, as South Africans, of the bushveld) and were simply blown away. From the viewing, to the hospitable, extremely knowledgeable staff, to the cuisine/food/dining experience, accommodation and, of course, the game viewing (we saw the Big... More

Everyone and everything was simply magnificent! Repeat trips are guaranteed! From the welcome to the food to the game drives to the sherry in our rooms, we couldnt get enough. Highly recommend anyone to holiday here, for relaxation, spectatular game viewing, delicious food, and amazing ranger specials.

This was our second visit to Leopard Mountain. Our first trip was in 2008. We said then that we would be back, and albeit 7 years later, we returned. We are delighted to say that what we thought was perfect then, has continued to grow and become a greater delight than before! There were many changes. The first was the... More

Hi Bronwyn, A heartfelt thank you for your incredible review, it really does mean so much to us. I must say, I have eagerly been awaiting your review on trip-advisor, prepared for some more of the South African-Australian banter that flew back and forth during your stay with us! You and your wonderful family quickly became part of our ‘family’... More

Where do I begin? We stayed for four amazing days at Leopard Mountain Game Lodge and were not at any point disappointed! We made our way from Durban which was a pretty simple (but long) drive. It was quite the drive from the main gate of the reserve to the lodge as we were in a small compact car. I... More
