Nice quiet place for a romantic getaway. Situated in the bush away from your every day stress. Nicely secluded and a lot of privacy. I would have preferred covers on the outside jacuzzis but still stunning to be able to sit in the jacuzzi with just the sound of nature surrounding you.

This place is completely off the beaten track and is great to cut out all the chaos of city life. We had a 2 night stay here. We were given lodge number 8 which had a wooden deck, lovely spacious bedroom/ living area with large bed, walk through closet/storage area and a bathroom with bath and shower. It also had a lovely Jacuzzi at the side. Each lodge is well hidden from the man path and other lodges so u truly feel you are on your own. The bed was comfy enough and made with fresh flowers on top each day which was pretty. However my peacefully sleep was continuously broken by the bats on the roof and other strange noises. All very wild and lovely but when trying to sleep it was hard going. Especially at one point when we were just getting into bed a bat swooped down at my fiancé. It was actually inside which was very funny but a little scary at it seemed to be swooping for him continuously until we managed to get it outside! Close encounter indeed!
The Jacuzzi was lovely! and it was nice to have the time to use it as to be honest there wasn't much else to do.
We visited the croc place which was good and the weaver nearby which had lots of nice things to buy. We also went on an afternoon game drive ran by the nearby protea hotel. We were out for a couple of hours and we saw rhino...lots of rhino. Apparently we were unlucky not to see much else and that is was unusual.
We did meet the lovely friendly Zebra on our way out too which was nice!
My only complaint would be that they are missing a trick with not using the bar/dining area more. It is lacking a real atmosphere and near enough as soon as you have finished your meal you are hurried back to your room. They blew out nearly all the candles while we were sitting at the table both nights. We felt very uncomfortable having to quickly drink our drinks. I understand the girls wanted to get to their bed/home as they had been there since early but investing in more staff for shift changes would improve this. I am talking before even 8pm they were closing up. More could be made of but still keeping the nice relaxing atmosphere.

I, my wife, and two grown boys found the Leopard Walk to be the right combination of natural setting, comfortable accommodations, and access to surrounding parks and beaches. We enjoy nature, and there's a lot to see on the grounds of the lodge, which is on the Suni-Ridge Preserve, a wildlife conservation project started by the owners. Very good destination for nature-minded travelers.

What a great property to stay at, all staff were very friendly and helpful!

When we needed information about what to do and where to go in the area Rob made calls and organized it all.

I only went for 2 nights, wish I could hav stayed longer, hopefully I can back it back there soon!

Thank you leopard walk lodge and Rob for letting us stay!

Looking at the establishment on the website I was drawn by the rooms situated in the bush. Secluded and romantic. When we arrived it was really nice. The rooms definitely are very good and well appointed.
Unfortunately the dining/lounge area is lacking and doesnt serve lunch.
There is breakfast and dinner but really not great. For a 4 star establishment we expected alot better.
They should definitely expand and better the food service and add items to the minibar in the rooms.
Having some marked walking trails in the lodge camp will also be nice to view the game that is there.
