“Leopard Rock... a glimpse of God's Window...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband and I recently visited Leopard Rock (our very first trip down the south coast)... The view is stunning, unlike anything I've ever seen before... As I crawled onto the rock and looked out - I felt as though I were in Heaven... An amazing experience with the one I love. The cafe is beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful..

“Friendly owners/staff and very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The view from the patio is spectacular and the food just hit the spot. We thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of sitting on the edge of the gorge and looking out while enjoying our mid morning meal. The owner and her staff were very informative and were able to converse in both English and Afrikaans very fluently and were able to give us quite a bit of information about the area and places to visit. Although we did not have lunch per se, we did enjoy a mid-morning snack of toasted sandwiches and cold drinks/coffee and were totally entertained by the owner, who really made us feel at home. Lovely family atmosphere and a great restaurant and view spot for anyone wanting to drive out to the Oribi Gorge area. Well worth the drive and for tourists a must-see.

“Location, location, location !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Like the other reviewers mention, this must be one of the best views you can have while having lunch. On our way back from Oribi gorge had a quick stop at Leopard Rock to have lunch. Good choice, tasty food and very generous portions. Fast and friendly service. Can't go wrong at a place like this.

“SPECTACULAR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011 via mobile

If you looking for a place to stay in or around Port Shepstone look no further than Leopard Rock Lookout Chalets,from the time you arrive you are greeted with a warm smile from your hostess and host, the accommadation is spectacular with the chalets on the edge of the Oribi Gorge overlooking the majestic river bellow,which winds its way through the Gorge,the chalets are extremely well decorated with a lot of personal touches, the attention to detail is amazing with every little item being thought of, for the dairing to be different there is an out door shower at every chalet were you can shower under the stars.
