Z is a fountain of knowledge and a wonderful person. We were privileged to see lions, lionesses, cheetah, rhino and a host of other animals. The little things like champagne under the... More

We have stayed at many bush lodges but this one is special and a fantastic place to be. Excellent in every way, we could not have asked for more. We had exceptional service, great food and our game drives were so much fun with many sightings. Cannot wait to get back.

So many highlights- dinner under the stars, venture into the wine cellar, night cap around the fire, spectacular sun sets... More

Leopard mountain lodge is an ideal Getaway for couples looking for privacy as the rooms are secluded and it caters for a small number of guests at a time. This allows guests to receive that extra personal attention that guarantees a comfortable stay. I was quite impressed by the detailed itenary and the quality of the game drives. The knowledge...

Just returned from a weekend stay at Leopard Mountain and it was absolutely incredible. The staff are extremely attentive and you are treated as part of a family rather than as a stranger. Accommodation is fabulous-individual chalets that are well designed and situated right in the heart of the bushveld. The cuisine was outstanding and dinner was held in the... More
