Leopard Mountain is a well run safari lodge in a glorious location. Zululand Rhino reserve is well worth a visit, and yes there are rhinos. The landscape is spectacular and there is abundant game. What particularly impressed us was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the guides, not just in re the big 5, but also every aspect of the reserve.... More

The staff was very helpful and made sure your stay was nothing less then great. As it was our honeymoon they even gave us a private... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Leopard Mountain Lodge in October and had the most wonderful time. Our room was huge and our patio (complete with hammock and private pool) had an amazing view. The staff, from our initial welcoming, to all the rangers (especially Alden) and waitresses (especially 'knock knock' Noni) were all outstanding. Our dinners under... More

It felt like i stayed at a different lodge to all the other reviews, I have stayed at 6 other game lodges all around KZN and didn't feel that this matched up to the others in terms of service or accommodation, not the friendliest welcome at all and not worth the number one place on tripadvisor, nothing bad but nothing...

We stayed 2 nights at Leopard Mountain Lodge and had a wonderful time. The staff, the location, the bungalows, the food, everything was amazing! Won’t say here what they did for our anniversary but it was amazing. The game drives were good even if we only saw lions (so not all the big 5 but we didn’t care). Some customers... More
