While visiting Oribi Gorge, we ate lunch at the Leopard Rock Lookout Cafe. "Lookout" is actually an understatement because this place is gorgeous! You sit outside on a patio and overlook one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and I've been to a lot of places around the world. The food was also delicious! While there, you... More

The service was very slow. Food was average and found it a bit pricy. View was breath-taking. Although you couldn't really enjoy the sounds of nature with the music going in the background (not loud, just annoying).

After many hours of riding our bikes, we decided to visit Leopard Rock to have something to eat. It was our first time there so we were kinda of looking and trying to see where/how... More

This was my first visit to Oribi Gorge. What a surprise to find this restaurant with exceptional good food and amazing views in the reserve. The restaurant has enough inside seating, but we went for the deck and the view over the gorge. Service by a young gentleman, Gert, was quick and efficient. The owner took time to inform us... More

We stopped at Leopard Rock for some lunch and milkshakes after trying out the big swing at wild five adventures (crazy!). We all had great toasted sandwiches, and the view was unbeatable. Make sure you head to the leopard rock lookout area too, it's incredible. Definitely would return!

Don't miss out on enjoying a generously portioned meal or a slice of home baked cake at The Leopard Rock. This little Restaurant is unique in so many ways. It sits atop the Umzimkulu River gorge with the river running far below in the deep valley. The Restaurant deck overhangs the cliff and the view is indescribable. Better to go... More

My wife and I recently stayed in the chalets for the third time! Leopard Rock is really a hidden gem. We love to come here for the unbelievable view, lovely chalets and the welcoming hospitality of the owners Sue and Andries. Not to mention the fantastic farm style breakfast with their home made salad dressing (seriously - you cant get... More
