Route & Itinerary

5 Days / 4 Nights

Day 1:Leopard Hills Safari Lodge

Your Safari starts at OR Tambo (formerly Johannesburg) International Airport, with a schedules light aircraft light to the heart of the Sabi Sands. From the airstrip, it is a short drive to the magic of Leopard Hills Safari Lodge. The lodge is built on a hill overlooking a natural waterhole and is close to the perennial Sand River, a sanctuary for hippo, crocodile and many bird species as it gently flows to the heartbeat of Africa, not far from camp.

Settle into your suite and refresh before setting off on an exciting game drive, tracking animals and learning about the environment from your guide and tracker. Stop for sundowners before returning to a fire lit Boma for magnificent bush cuisine.

Each of the 8 luxurious glass-fronted suites, complete with their own sundeck and rock plunge pool offer superb views of the African Bushveld, while air-conditioning and overhead fans provide welcome respite against the harsh African heat.

The breathtaking romantic bathrooms include double indoor and outdoor showers and have windows that open to a glorious view of the passing wilderness moments. Enjoy the privacy of your suite and salute the timelessness of Africa over a drink from your fully-stocked mini bar. Or drift into a deep and peaceful sleep whilst enjoying a full body massage.

Day 2:Leopard Hills Safari Lodge

You will be awakened at dawn with steaming coffee before setting off on a memorable morning game drive in open safari vehicles. Learn the stories of the night told in tracks and dung and keep your eyes peeled for the legendary ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. For approximately three hours you will track some of the amazing animals whose home is the Sabie Sands Game Reserve.

Later in the afternoon you will get together for high tea before setting out on the afternoon-to-night game drive, with a sun downer stop in between, and returning to a warm fire and a delicious meal.
