This was the third safari lodge we visited in South Africa. The staff was very friendly, especially Themba who had a great sense of humor and was looking after his guests with a great deal of attention. We enjoyed our room, with the terrace and little pool area (though it was a bit too cold at that time). From the... More

The lodge is situated at a smaller private Rhino reserve. On top of a hill it overlooks a large part of the valley. The lodges were luxuriously decorated, with private terrace, mini pool and hammock. The picnic lunch was first-rate. The food was very good and the wine cellar outstanding. Themba was our ranger. Apart from showing us the wildlife... More

My wife took me to Leopard Mountain for a surprise retirement holiday after a work commitment in Durban. It was wonderful - hard to say how it could have been better. On our first bush drive, we saw a leopard, and in the next couple of days saw cheetah, lion, rhino, elephant, zebra, giraffe, hippo and many more. What's special... More
