&Beyond Leadwood | 5-Star Lodge

Private Game Reserve, Sabi Sands


Personal Impression

Leadwood is a 5-star property and the most expensive and luxurious of the &Beyond collection of camps in Sabi Sands featuring just four air conditioned spacious suites and it is situated in the Sabi Sand private game reserve area.

The property is spread out on lawn and bush areas and each suite is very private. This is a luxury lodge with wonderful spacious rooms and a huge main lodge for just eight guests. This is an excellent area for game and home to the big five.

This lodge has four very large air conditioned suites that feature a living room area, oversized spacious bedroom with a large bathroom directly behind the bed area. This is one big open concept and the room feels incredibly spacious. There is a large outdoor shower and the biggest private plunge pool I have seen at a lodge in South Africa. The rooms have a wonderful mixture of rock, wood, and floor to ceiling windows that create the outdoor feeling inside your luxury suite. These are fantastic suites.

Game Drives

Game viewing is excellent. The Sabi Sands private game reserve is known for excellent game viewing and it is home to the big five - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and cape buffalo. Each game lodge has a section of this huge private reserve and offers traversing rights to others on agreement. You will never feel that there are too many vehicles in the area you drive and they co-operate on sightings to have a limit of three vehicles at the sightings.

The Lodge, Dining and Wines

The lodge and dining area is very appealing. The rock and fine wood theme is evident and this is incredibly spacious considering the lodge only can accommodate eight guests. Right outside the main lodge is a large public swimming pool and exercise equipment. The deck features wonderful views over the bush for dining. All inclusive package with all meals and local wines and spirits.

Internet is available at the sister property, Exeter River Lodge. Internet may be coming available at the camp in the future and may well be available at Leadwood when you read this comment.
