The place is located on a hill....so when the clouds come in and the sun sets, they tend to drop a little. You will open a bottle of wine in the clouds and finish it above the clouds as the cloud bank drops. Absolutely fantastic. One of the most beautifull, unusual and romantic get aways you can think off. A...

We stayed in one of the luxury suites for two nights with full board. It was absolutely fabulous. The place is beautiful - not only the surrounding plains and wilderness but also the small village full of wonderful details in every little item. Everything is cared for and we had a great experience despite the weather not being too friendly....

Leshiba offers an amazing vacation. Packed filled with animals and birds, among whom you can take lovely and well-marked hikes. The rooms are artworks themselves, incorporating clay sculpture into the natural landscape of the mountain and with beautiful views. The rooms are clean and quiet. The staff are kind, helpful and knowledgeable. We only had dinner one night but it...

Love the way the reserve is not over run with accommodation and people and one can have quiet, lonely walks. Hamasha is so well kitted out, its going to become a firm favourite for us every year.
