Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "I had a great stay at the Leopard Hills. The sightings were world class, The food was excellent and there were improvements in the accommodation."
Tribes Service: "The bookings were done expediently and all details of the trip were handed to me with plenty of time to spare. The excellent service is the main reason why I have been a customer for so many years,"
Guides: "I had Johan to be my guide for the entire duration of my stay."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The guide is mindful of the environment and on several occasions stop to pick up plastic bottles as well as rubbish left by others."


Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve
There has been considerable improvement s made in the lodge. The area where the bath is located, as well as places where towels are hung is heated. That area has also been renovated. WiFi is available at the library.

Our Memories

"The sighting of the wild dogs - almost every alternate day. One sighting in particular will linger in my memory for a long time to come. We chance upon a pack of wild dogs beneath a tree with a leopard on top of the tree and the carcass of a Nyala, which was killed by the Leopard dangling at the fork of the tree. The dogs were jumping to get a bite of the carcass. Eventually they did manage to eat half of the carcass."
"Hundreds of buffalos drinking water at the dam"
