Let me just add that we ended up by thinking that this was the best trip we've ever had. &Beyond was spectacular on every level. Combine them with the wonders of Tanzania ... my new favourite place on earth (with my new favourite people) and one does get a glimpse of heaven.

Leopard Rock is located in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, comprising 70 000 hectares of pristine African bushveld, just south of the small town of Derdepoort and stretching westwards along the Botswana border. The reserve is one of South Africa’s largest and most popular game reserves, with a vast array of wildlife species including the big 5 as well as wonderful and varied birdlife.

Leopard Rock is easily accessible.

Leopard Rock is situated on a rocky outcrop on a low hill overlooking the bush on all sides. There are 5 separate double / twin thatched cottages within 50 yards of the main lodge. Each has its own bathroom, rock shower, sitting room and verandah.

Unique Selling Point

A heated Jacuzzi, nestled into the rocks is also available for those wanting to unwind. There is a small library with satellite Television available.

Early morning and afternoon game drives offer the chance to see some of Africa’s most impressive wildlife including the Big 5 and the rare and endangered Wild Dog.
