Exceptional service and a warm atmosphere dissolve away the stresses of modern day living. Leopard Mountain has the most spectacular and uninterrupted views in Zululand, which provide an ever changing panorama over the African plains and the meandering riverine forests below.


Your stay at the lodge is in a luxurious, well-appointed luxury suites. The suites have air conditioners for hot days and are equipped with large, open showers that have incredible views over the valley below and are a light and spacious haven of peace and tranquillity to relax and unwind in. By day, laze in your hammock or private plunge pool and watch the eagles soar at eye level over the plains below and by night, marvel at the magnificence of millions of stars under the African night sky. Your private balcony is the perfect place to have a glass of sherry and watch the moon rising over the mountains.


The relaxing atmosphere of our lodge truly helps one to unwind the second you put foot on our African soil… You will be welcomed by friendly and ever helpful staff who are there to tend to your every need during your stay. The lodge has been designed with your relaxation in mind and you will find many places where you can happily put your feet up, unwind and feel completely at home.


As you can expect from a stay at Leopard Mountain, your food experience will be truly magnificent as we provide you with a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ and unforgettable African safari experience. Whether you are dining under the stars in the boma, on the main deck or in the dining room, our meals promise to be impressively delectable. All our breads and pastries are home-baked in our kitchen daily and we are able to cater for private meals and special occasions too.



Waking to the morning calls of the birds in the riverbed below your suite, the day begins with a select cup of coffee and some traditional rusks before embarking on your early morning safari with your guide.

On return to the lodge, an enticing breakfast awaits you in the dining room. Thereafter you can enjoy a leisurely morning at your own pace or you can take some quality time for yourself and be pampered at our Spa for an hour or two.

At lunch time you can enjoy a light picnic basket lunch around the bird pond, on the main lodge deck or simply relax on your private balcony.

In the afternoon, you will be invited to come and enjoy afternoon tea on the main deck as you overlook the distant Lebombo Mountain Range. Afterwards you will go with your guide to explore some different areas of the reserve on your afternoon safari and will be treated to a magnificent African sunset to remember. On return to the lodge, you will have the opportunity to freshen up before having dinner in our ‘million star’ boma where you will be treated to an exquisite African inspired meal and can pair it with one of our award-winning wines from our cellar.

As the day comes to an end, you can sit around the bonfire and share the exciting stories of the days’ wildlife encounters with the other guests or retire to your suite to enjoy a sherry on your deck and listen as Africa's night chorus unfolds with distant lion roars, hyenas whooping, or baboons barking at lurking Leopards in the river bed below.
