Sabi Sand Game Reserve


Leopard Hills Location Map

Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve is located in the western sector of the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the world famous Kruger National Park. The lodge is spectacularly situated atop a rocky outcrop, offering magnificent views over the bush and a natural waterhole on the plains below.

Early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives, in search of Africa's big game, are conducted by your knowledgeable ranger. Walks through the bush take place just after breakfast, on request, and is the best way of experiencing the 'finer' aspects of the bushveld. Your ranger will guide you though the fauna and flora of the Sabi Sand Reserve, pointing out insects, grasses, trees and smaller species that are all an integral part of the ecosystem.

Back in camp, guests are spoilt by the highest standards of service and fine cuisine. On warm nights in summer, guests can also enjoy a traditional Boma dinner. After the evening game drive, guests will be drawn to the essences of a burning fire. Here a hurricane lamp lit 'dining room' under African skies, and a feast of delicious cuisine awaits.

The 5* luxury lodge features 8 glass-fronted, air-conditioned suites, each with private plunge pool and spectacular views over the African bush.

The treatment Sala and gym have proved very popular among guests. Work up a sweat on the various gym machines overlooking the bush below, or enjoy an array of pampering massage treatments in the glass-fronted Sala, which has a spectacular vantage point off the main pool deck, offering absolute privacy with spectacular views.

Start TestimonialI wanted to extend my huge thanks for organising my holiday to Leopard Hills. I'm at the airport about to fly home but already thinking of my next trip out to Africa as it has most definitely taken hold of my heart. The team at Leopard Hills were exceptional and made me feel part of their family. As for the safari drives, they blew me away with what we saw and how knowledgeable the game drivers were - I now want hear all the new news about the beautiful animals we got to meet! Everything at the lodge was brilliant in a wonderfully understated way so it didn't feel over the top. I really don't think I could have found a better way to celebrate my birthday so a very heartfelt thank you for making it all possible for me. End Testimonial
