In December 1999, it was recognised as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, for its natural beauty and unique value in global conservation. Vast area of indescribable beauty, containing 3 major lake systems & 8 different ecosystems.

Excellent Experience

We had an amazing experience with the most earn and friendly staff. The rooms are just beautiful and the food was amazing. Had an amazing encounter with lion in our game drive. Our Ranger Jian was very knowledgeable and shared her passion for birding and animals with us. I would highly recommend this lodge.

5 Star Safari Experience

Leopard Mountain Lodge provided us a 3 night stay to be remembered for a long time. Celebrated our 50yr wedding anniversary in style. Spacious secluded serviced chalets each with a plunge pool overlooking a river below with scenery to forever. Resident Nyala and warthog in the lodge grounds. A well stocked curio shop and wine cellar. The main lodge was well appointed with an extended balcony for viewing and relaxing. The main lodge and chalets were spotlessly clean - also very aware of Covid requirements.
The service and food was tops, prepared by a professional chef and George, all food was hot, plentiful and delicious. Compliments to the chef and George. All staff were outstanding, helpful and made you feel very important. Melissa and Ingrid keep up the good work.
The reserve has the big 5 with abundant birds, animals and plants. Our safari guide James was a walking encyclopedia and expert tracker, eyes everywhere, spoor on the road and birds in the air. Our list to tick off sightings was almost full. James you are so knowledgeable, an expert in your field. I'm told the lodge only employs the very best safari guides.

Winter Mini Break

Awesome hotel in the midst of unspoilt nature of the St Lucia Estuary. The staff were very attentive and shared with us their lovely hotel and environment. The game drives were well timed (don't like exhaustively long drives, especially with children) and our guide engaged us with his expert knowledge about both the large game and the smallest of creatures in the reserve. A particular highlight was the boat excursion on 'the narrows' to get up close with pods/families of hippos that habited the shoreline. My daughter said "they treat us like royaly". The lodge is intimate and the food is delicious.
