This was on my 81 year old mum's bucket list and a holiday of a life time for me too. It superseded our expectations. The atmosphere was wonderful. All the guests were treated like friends of the family. The rangers Lukhanyo and Obout were excellent - we learnt so much from them and they enabled us to get close to many wonderful wild animals on the Amakhala Game Reserve. A truly memorable experience. My only slightly negative comment is that there is a vast difference in the size of rooms. Unfortunately ours was the smallest - but someone had to have it. Thank you Rosemary, Bill, Nomonde and all the team at Leeuwenbosch.
