This is not your super luxury game lodge with an overload of nouvelle cuisine and a hectic program, almost guarantying a big five experience. This is old style hospitality, very good home cooking and an authentic and relaxing South African bush experience. It is also more affordable, especially if you book all three units. As stated in other reviews Neil... More

We have just been to Leopards View for our fourth visit and were not disappointed. Neil and Ann continue to provide a wonderful retreat at an affordable price. The accommodation is perfect for the environment, comfortable yet tastefully understated, and the food of similar quality. We stayed for 5 nights at the start of a 16 day holiday and found... More

Words can't describe how wonderful our time at Leopard's View was. 2 girlfriends and I stayed for 5 nights in the middle of January, and wouldn't you know, the lowveld received 3/4 of its yearly rain during our stay. But Neil and Ann did everything they could to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Neil had rented a vehicle specifically... More

My friend Kathleen and I enjoyed four nights with Ann and Neil and their great staff. We could see the waterhole from our doorway! We saw something every day and often many somethings many times during the day without even moving from the comfort of the front porch. Neil and Ann are great hosts - very welcoming and informative regarding... More

Leopards View is now the temporary home for my staff and I as we wait to establish our research camp. We are a team of wildlife ecologists working in the Greater Kruger Park and I have been here for only one night and am looking at a pride of lions drinking at the waterhole! The supper was amazing and the... More

It says on their website that Leopard’s View is a unique place, and we couldn’t agree more! What a truly wonderful few days we spent with our lovely hosts Neil & Ann, whose care and attention to detail, enthusiasm and obvious love for the bush made our stay what it was. Leopard’s View is a small lodge hidden away in... More

This was undoubtedly the highlight of our holiday. We flew direct from Cape Town to Hoedspruit (a very small, friendly, comfortable airport) and picked up an Avis car on site (quick and easy) . We appreciated an upgrade to a 4x4, as some of the Greater Kruger roads are very rough (but eminently passable). Leopard's View is just a short... More

Great home away from home. Great surroundings, great food, great conversation. Loved to sit by the fire socializing with Neil and Ann and watch the watering hole at night; saw a herd of cape buffalo come through and zebras amongst other things. Bushbabies in the tower entertained the boys. I wish we had more time at the Lodge to just... More

We visited this little island in the bush on our trip in October 2010 and i must say it was a great experience. The owners, Anne and Neil Kern are realy nice hosts, lovely people, very... More
