We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Leopard Mountain Game Lodge this past weekend. We were looking for a place to relax in the bush. On arrival you immediately feel welcomed by the friendly staff. The rooms are bespoke, each chalet is built giving you privacy from the surrounding chalets, they are spacious with quality finishes, a beautiful... More

The wildlife, the people, the view, the comfort of the lodge and the food were extremely superb at Leopard Mountain Game Lodge. The rooms are fantastic, the staff is very kind (even calling me on my name from the first time) and the rangers are very cool and smart guys. We woke up early every day to see the most... More

i was pleasantly surprised with my first safari experience. I did not expect such excellent accommodation, comfort, dinning experience on Safari, 'in the bush'. The staff were so happy and thoughtful it made me feel I was part of a happy family. The knowledge of the guides was excellent and their eagerness to please made the 3 days I was... More

It’s always a pleasure to have first-timers, everything is a new experience and it reminds us why we chose to work out here in the ‘bush’! It’s wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your three nights...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon - it was absolutely fantastic! We had a very warm welcome from the staff when we arrived and enjoyed our "private dining" for our first night with our own personal braai. The food was beautiful and the wine as well! Our lodge had stunning views of the game park... More

Dear Charlotte and Gavin, Many thanks for your kind words, we too wish you could have stayed longer! It is very encouraging to hear that you enjoyed the two nights of your honeymoon that you spent with us, we hope the rest of the honeymoon was as enjoyable. We definitely aren’t planning on going anywhere, so when ‘one day’ comes,... More

I'll admit to being slightly sceptical ahead of our trip to Leopard Mountain (I'd heard that some reserves in Kruger were over-crowded and the amount of gawking humans causes distress to some of the animals, and I didn't want to add to this) but ALL my fears were blown away within seconds of arriving. The staff were incredibly friendly and... More

Dear Susan & Adrian, What a wonderful review to read, thank you for taking the time to post it. It’s hard to know how to respond to be honest! It’s great to hear that we blew those slightly sceptical ideas away and turned you into avid safari-goers (though, you didn’t need much encouragement – there is a game guide within... More

We stayed at the lodge shortly after new year with our daughter and her partner, who had booked all our stays for this trip and couldn't have been happier. Really didn't expect such luxurious chalets and the food was excellent too, and that's just the basics!!! From the moment we arrived we were treated like family by everybody. Our ranger... More

We stayed at the lodge wth our two adult daughters and a son in law for two nights and could not be more pleased. The villas are beautiful with a nice view and a small pool. The lunch is served in a basket which you can eat wherever you like. Great idea! Dinners are served in a cozy boma. We... More

From the first minute of arrival you are aware that you are fortunate enough to have "landed" somewhere very special. This lodge is exquisite, the staff well trained and nothing is too much trouble for them.
