From its perch in the hills, Leopard Mountain Lodge in the Manyoni Private Game Reserve, looks out over riverine forests to the distant Lebombo Mountains. 8 comfortably furnished stone and thatch chalets extend out to private decks with panoramic views over the lush reserve. Each suite features a plunge pool and hammock – secluded for ultimate tranquillity. The warmly welcoming guest areas offer spaces for mingling while sipping sundowners after a busy day game viewing. Keep an eye out for the animals which come to the rock pool to drink, gaze out over the appealing natural wilderness and dine under the stars in the fire-lit boma. In addition to daily game drives, numerous activities can be arranged: elephant interaction, boat cruises, tiger-fishing, whale-watching, bush walks (subject to trails guide availability) and cultural tours. This Big 5 reserve is also home to wild dog and cheetah.
