From the minute we arrived we were not just house guests / visitors we were made to feel part of the greater Leeuwenbosch family.
Our room was in Shearers Lodge the old shearing shed which had been very tastefully restored to provide very comfortable spacious accommodation furnished with all the necessary facilities. From the veranda magnificent views of the Amakala game reserve could be seen.
Few words could explain how wonderful all the staff were in their dedication to making our stay one to remember.
Our holiday highlight were the game drives delivered by those wonderful Rangers Lukhanyo and Oboute with their endless knowledge of the wildlife, they seemed to have a sixth sense as to where to find the animals and give us a once in a lifetime experience of being up close and sometimes within touching distance of these magnificent creatures.
During every game drive we were treated to superb panoramic views of Amakala and the meandering Bushman's river where drinks and muffins were provided.
Our African experience was further enhanced when the staff treated us to an African cultural evening of music, song and dance.
All too soon our African adventure was over, but we were left with memories of Bill's wonderful stories of times past and having seen first hand those magnificent animals in their natural environment.
