It says on their website that Leopard’s View is a unique place, and we couldn’t agree more! What a truly wonderful few days we spent with our lovely hosts Neil & Ann, whose care and attention to detail, enthusiasm and obvious love for the bush made our stay what it was. Leopard’s View is a small lodge hidden away in Balule game reserve in a magnificent setting. The main viewing deck sits at the top of a slope, looking out over the valley and in particular over the waterhole. Delightful rooms with the added bonus that being a small lodge, you have your own space and often free run of the place. We took up the opportunity for some bush walks and game drives in Balule & loved the day trip to Kruger that Neil & Ann organised for us but we would still recommend factoring in some chill time to your stay, our favourite days were spent lazily on the deck watching the wildlife passing by. There’s also a viewing tower which is great fun & provides lovely views out over the bush. Not to mention being home to a family of resident bush babies who we instantly fell in love with! The food was all wonderful, though Ann’s cakes served each day with afternoon tea were a particular highlight! We were lucky enough to have to interrupt dinner one night to jump in the game viewer and head down to watch some of the lion pride drinking at the waterhole. We said when we left that we had arrived as guests but were leaving as friends. We’re already planning the return trip!
