Leopard mountain safari lodge at Manyoni Private Game Reserve offers total peace and tranquility

Manyoni Private Game Reserve

Situated in the rolling hills of northern KwaZulu Natal, Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge is part of the amazing Manyoni Private Game Reserve.

This 23 000 hectare wilderness is home to the Big Five and a fantastic variety of bird life – manyoni being Zulu for “the place of birds”.

There are seven different lodges within the game reserve and it is to Leopard Mountain that my husband and I have paid several visits. This is a very comfortable 4-Star lodge with nine stone chalets nestled in the cliff tops with magnificent views of the Msunduzi River below.

My favourite aspect of this lodge is the private pools on the veranda of each chalet. The chalets are well-spaced and completely private and the pools are just wonderful for a refreshing plunge after time spent in the bush. The chalets are well-appointed with bushveld décor, thatched roofs, crisp linen and sparkling bathrooms.

At the Main Llodge, you will find the lounge, restaurant boma and an Africology Spa.  Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge is all about relaxation and one of the main reasons why we visit.

The meals and picnics are excellent and are another of the reasons why we have visited Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge more than once.

The whole atmosphere in the dinner boma is wonderful.

The game drives depart just after sunrise and a hot mug of coffee and the odd rusk or two. No game reserve guarantee’s that you’ll see all of the Big Five, but, to my mind, the anticipation and hopefulness are all part of the experience.

We have had some great sightings, particularly of the black rhino and wild dogs. There is another game drive in the late afternoon.  Their guides are knowledgeable and entertaining.
