This establishment has a spectacular view of the gorge and offers fresh homely food. The portions are large so sharing is a great idea. The panini was fresh, the fries homemade and beautifully prepared. One small thing - the smoked chicken on the panini was processed chicken roll rather than the real thing - please use genuine chicken. You do...

My fiance and I could never beat the experience of our visit to Leopard Rock, we are still in awe. The staff, the divine food, the views, the wildlife and the gorgeous chalet, all deserve the greatest of reviews. Many thanks to Sue and Andries for making our our experience one of a life time.

I could not find fault with anything. And that is high praise indeed. The view from anywhere in the chalet is spectacular. Sunset was breathtaking. The kitchen has all you need including salad dressing, milk, milo as well as a chilled bottle of bubbly. There is also a decanter of sherry to warm you if the evening is chilly. Attention...

This is our happy place. Since our honeymoon we have been back at least 6 times. Nothing beats the view, accommodation and hospitality. We love Sue and Andries. They are more than hosts. We like to think of them as friends xx

We stayed at this lodge for 3 nights, and wished we could stay more. Most beautiful views directly from the lounge area, private balcony, Jacuzzi and outdoor (though very private) shower. Views cannot be justified through any photos. Needs to be appreciated in reality. Cosy and romantic, suitable for couples only. Very comfortable furnishings. Cleaning service daily. Inclusive delicious breakfast...

Stunning scenery, perfectly private, relaxing, beautifully appointed luxury chalets with amazing views. Sue and Andries were welcoming, friendly and perfect hosts. I would almost return to South Africa just to come back to this little piece of heaven.

We stayed here for two nights and really wished we stayed longer. The chalets were really nice and the most spectacular view! I can not get over how awesome the view is. The accommodation was great, the jacuzzi bath brilliant but that outdoor shower is fantastic. Sue and Andries are great hosts. My only slight gripe is that is wished...

This must be one of the most stunning places we have ever visited. We spent 3 nights here as part of our honeymoon and it was amazing.
