My wife and I stayed at Leopard Hills on the first part of our honeymoon in June 2008 (apologies its taken so long to write this review)....
From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for an incredible treat. As it was our first safari and visit to South Africa - we were a little unsure of how it would all operate - but safe to say - we loved every minute of it.
I had booked the reservation almost 1.5 years in advance (it was our honeymoon after all) and I had specifically requested Suite # 8 as I was told this was a superb suite... how right that turned out to be.
All of the staff from the rangers & spotters to the waiting staff and management where all simply superb.
One of the many highlights was early one morning when we went on game drive, our ranger happened upon a leopard who had just made a kill and was commencing its morning breakfast. There was only my wife and I on the large jeep with the spotter and the ranger. We watched this incredible sight for around 30mins before our ranger alerted others via radio of the location. About 10mins later, a jeep carrying at least 14 tourists from the Ulusaba Lodge (Richard Bransons one nearby) turned up. I'm not sure what they were more interested in, the fact there was a wild leopard eating an Impala in front of them, or staring at my wife and I wondering how on earth we were having a private safari with our own ranger + spotter! It was hilarious!
When we reserved we understood that each night, all of the guests (from the eight suites) dine together, at first I was very unsure about this, as we wanted to have some quiet meals alone together, but this turned out to be one of the real highlights of our stay and we met some fantastic people, that we are still in touch with to this day. Speaking of the food.... EVERY single piece of food served was spectacular, some of the finest i've experienced globally!
We are looking forward to returning to Leopard Hills in the future and wish the team there all the success in the world. PS - i'm pencilling in a date for our 7 year anniversary (so only 2 years to go) - so keep Suite 8 free.
