Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve | Sabi Sands

Leopard Hills Symbol

Personal Impression

Sabi Sands private reserve borders Kruger National Park. This is a small exclusive lodge with only 8 rooms and the finest of accommodations. Douglas, the manager, is personable, charming and delighted to welcome guests to this exquisite game lodge. It is set high over a waterhole with incredible views of the bush below. I highly recommend this property.

Voted as one of Getaway Magazines Top 15 Lodges in Africa. Small and personal, it offers a truly deluxe and unforgettable experience.

Deck View


Suite is an appropriate name for the fabulous rooms at Leopard Hills. The rooms are large, with floor to ceiling windows looking out into the bush, a separate sitting area, all fully air conditioned with a sun deck, private rock plunge pools, as in the picture above. Romantic bathrooms with big bathtubs, indoor and outdoor showers. This is extreme and total luxury.

Game Drives

Personal wildlife pictures taken on this property.

The topography around the private reserve of Leopard Hills is the same as Singita. It is so diverse and that makes every game drive a delightful experience. Game viewing here is plentiful. Animals are everywhere. When the fence came down in 1991 between Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sands reserve, 800 elephants have moved into Sabi Sands Reserve.

The area of Leopard Hills is open to the vast Kruger National Park, so the animals are free to roam in and out of the reserve. You are seeing nature at its finest here, not penned in a small area for the tourists to see. Couple this with the peaceful atmosphere of the bush, the low density of visitors, a vast expanse of private land, it is game viewing at its finest. There are only six guests with the guide and tracker in each land rover for a truly personal experience.

All the space you need to take your African wildlife pictures. Each game drive holds new adventures and the sights you see will be burned into your memory forever. Leopard Hills also offers bush walks, boma dinners and bush breakfasts. This is a wonderful property where your expectations will be exceeded.

The Guides

The quality of the guides at Leopard Hills is superb. Similar to other top quality lodges, the guides have a keen sense of Africa, the animals, and are doing exactly what they love to do. The guides stop at sundown to cook little appetizers and mix your favorite drink. You will enjoy this while watching the sunset over the African bush. The rangers post reports on the internet site (address below) with details of game drives and sightings. It is a nice thing to do and makes for very interesting reading as you anticipate your time in South Africa.

Dining and Wines

The intimacy of the dining room beckons Leopard Hills guests after they finish their cocktail on the expansive deck overlooking the water hole below. A delightful dining room where wonderful gourmet meals are served to please everyone's palate. Personal service is the key here and you will find they are willing to accommodate your every dietary need.

Leopard Hills was voted as one of the Top 100 Restaurants in South Africa (Food and Wine Magazine).
