Leadwood captivates its guests by taking deep root in their hearts, much like the ancient trees after which the Lodge is named.
Leadwood Lodge is ultimate safari choice for discerning travelers in search of luxurious exclusivity and solitude. Nestled in the confluence of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, Leadwood Lodge offers an intimate and serene getaway that is completely at peace with the bush that surrounds it.
With only three suites carefully distanced from each other, Leadwood Lodge offers the idyllic honeymoon setting. It can also ideally accommodate parties of friends and families who want to share an exclusive group experience without intruding on each other’s privacy. The three magnificent suites, with inspiring views over the Sand River, are lavishly appointed in contemporary style with every creature comfort imaginable. Leadwood’s safari vehicles are designed to carry no more than 6 guests. However, when booked for sole-use, a fourth suite may be made available to parties that are happy with 8 guests on their safari vehicle.

The traffic of game frequenting the trails through and beyond the camp and riverbed may be enjoyed from the cantilevered deck tented by a leafy Jackalberry. It is not uncommon to secretly witness the passage of an elusive leopard from this vantage point. The deck also offers an alternative venue for enjoying the rich fare at meal times.
Traditionally known as “the boma”, this truly African dining venue boasts a ceiling of stars and a roaring fire. It is around the Boma fire that friendships are sealed and all African bush yarns are spun – grandiose tales of fearsome beasts and great escapes are always more memorable when shared around the camp fire.
Our wine cellar boasts a collection of South Africa’s finest wines. Whether sunning at the pool, resting in the shade of the Leadwoods or enjoying an intimate dinner, we will have something special in our cellar. Guests are invited to peruse our wine list at the time of reservation and to let us know if there are any wines that they would like us to procure that are not currently in stock. Every effort will be made to have these requests available in time for your visit.
