The four-star Leopard Mountain Game Lodge is a highly beautiful safari lodge situated in the strikingly beautiful Zululand Rhino Reserve, Hluhluwe, KwaZulu-Natal.  Based on a protected area for endangered species, this lodge offers impressive views of the rivers and distant mountains.

Accommodation

Accommodation at the Lodge is the luxury at its best, and nine stone and thatch chalets are based serenely on the cliff tops. With private plunge pools and hammocks, the well-appointed cottages ensure that there is nothing more rejuvenating than savouring the views of the winding rivers below.

Game Drives

Fine dining, big five game drives and walking safaris are available at the lodge to tantalise all the senses.  Rewarding game drives through endless, first-rate bushveld and ever-flowing and ambling rivers are the order of the day while evenings are filled with scrumptious meals and the choice of mouth-watering wines from the multi-award winning wine cellar.

The Elephant

Rambo, Rachel and Jabulani are resident elephants at the Leopard Mountain Game Lodge that assist the rangers to share information about elephant anatomy and behaviour.  These huge elephants also have a story worth telling, and once the story is told, guests can interact with the majestic animals, feeding and touching them. And the greatest moment, Rambo is on hand for the perfect photo opportunity!

Romantic Get-Aways

Its mission is to provide couples with moments of romantic, idyllic bliss.  The perfect get-away to celebrate the perfect occasion, the Lodge offers couples an intimate-candle-lit-dinner-experience followed by blanket-huddling, star-gazing and in-room candles, flowers, chocolates and bubbles.

Nearby activities

St Lucia Lake Tours

South Africa has its first World Heritage Site in the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.  Lake St Lucia is part of this park and provides an unflawed and elegant way to appreciate the area.

Hippopotamuses and crocodiles are permanent dwellers in the lake and various animals, including buffalo, kudu and a variety of antelope, live on the shoreline.  In the perfect weathers, flocks of pelicans and flamingos inhabit the lake, making St Lucia a bird watchers paradise.

Fishing

Close to the Natal coast line, the warm Mozambique current provides all-year-round fishing.  In close proximity to the lodge, keen-fishermen-guests are likely to catch Dorado, Sailfish, King and Queen Mackerel as well as Marlin.

South Africa’s only tiger-fishing venue is Lake Jozini.  The dam, set at the base of the impressive Lebomo Mountain range, plays hosts to various fishing competitions and guests have the opportunity to rent boats and equipment for boat trips.

Whale Watching

Game viewing of a different kind.  Seasonal, two-hour tours ensure that visitors to the area experience memorable moments with these tender mammals of the sea.

 

Nearby attractions
