My wife and I stayed at Leopard Rock for two nights as we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We were treated like royalty, the food was great as was the pool and the setting is beautiful, a perfect mix of luxury and Africa. I recommend you take advantage now while tourists numbers are few and enjoy this oasis to yourself.... More

A warm welcome from very hospitable staff , as on our last trip , we were the only guests. The property is now in a very poor state and needs an injection of cash and a sound marketing plan . The staff are very attentive but lackleadership and above all , confidence. The food is just ok but not as... More

We stayed two nights at the Leopard Rock Lodge. We were the only guests and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The food prepared by Jacko was the best that we have had so far in Kenya. The lodge should have an emergency plan put in place since the chalets are so far from the... More

We stayed 2 nights with 2 kids and although we had the beautiful pool all for us most of the time, the lodge is seriously run down and not worth the price! Staff are doing their best but can't compensate for bad management. The cottages are nicely built and decorated but scarcely maintained (taps and water closet not working properly).... More

We arrived to find we were the only guests which was a strange feeling ! The few staff we encountered were friendly and obliging but it is not possible to judge them in such a strange circumstance. The property itself is a wee bit tired and not the 5 * experience by a long chalk.The lodges are unique and the... More

I've visited many African Game parks and enjoyed some great hospitality but Leopard Rock was exceptional. The staff were amazing and looked after us in a friendly but very professional way.
