The lodge is built on a hill overlooking a natural waterhole, the Perennial Sand River.
This river is a sanctuary for many bird species and host to wallowing Hippo’s and basking Crocodiles as it gently flows to the heartbeat of Africa not far from camp.
From this Hilltop Sanctuary, if you listen carefully somewhere in the distance you may be lucky enough to hear the roar of a Lion, companion less in his courage, friendless in his magnificence or, witness the reality of life and death in its fullness, as your eyes gaze into a marula tree, only to fall upon the illusive Leopard devouring the most graceful of all Antelope, the Impala.
Or perhaps you stumble upon the Dung-beetle during a walking safari and pay homage to the courage and strength of this little creature, which has throughout time, competed with the char axes, whom have always gained favour for their beauty.
Each of the 8 luxurious glass-fronted suites, complete with their own sundeck and rock plunge pool offer superb views of the African bushveld beyond, while air-conditioning and overhead fans provide welcome respite against the harsh African heat.
The breath-taking romantic bathrooms, which include double indoor and outdoor showers, have windows which open to a glorious view of the passing cavalcade below.
Enjoy the privacy of your suite and salute the timelessness of Africa over a drink from your fully-stocked mini bar. Or drift into a deep and peaceful sleep whilst enjoying a full body massage.
Early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives, in search of Africa’s big game, are conducted by your knowledgeable professional ranger.
State-of-the-art Landrovers, specifically designed for Leopard Hills, have individual bucket seats with fold-down armrests, ensuring your optimum safety and comfort.
