Leadwood Lodge
Once you have experienced a stay at Leadwood Lodge you’ll be longing to take root there as deeply as the ancient trees after which the Lodge is named.

The intimate Leadwood Lodge is the ideal choice small groups of friends or family sharing an African safari. Nestled in the fork of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, Leadwood Lodge offers a cosy and serene getaway that is completely at peace with the bush that surrounds it.

With only four suites carefully distanced from each other, Leadwood Lodge is ideal for families or parties of friends who want to share their safari experiences without intruding on each other’s privacy. When booked for individual use, rather than sole-use, we only ever use three suites, so the number of guests on the game drive vehicle is never more than six.

The rest of the world instantly slips away at Leadwood Lodge

Constructed for maximum privacy, the four suites ensure total serenity and solitude. Simply relax on your private veranda or while away the hours absorbed in the peace of the bush. Floor to ceiling glass windows afford wide views of the animals coming down to drink at the rocky river`s edge. The colours and textures of the bush follow you indoors and even the indoor shower is encased in glass.

Shared guest areas are intimate too, with steps and levels creating cosy, secluded areas. Tuck yourself away in a private corner with a book or enjoy a refreshing drink in the shade of a jackalberry tree on the spacious deck. With a granite river bank in front of the lodge, you’re bound to spot a four-legged visitor or two quenching their thirst. When the sun gets too hot, enjoy a refreshing dip in the king size plunge pool on your suite`s private deck.

The open-air dining room welcomes you with wholesome aromas and friendly faces. Linger over a leisurely meal under the roughly hewn bush chandelier or join in the hearty fare around a blazing fire in the boma. When the chill of the African night creeps up, retire to the warmth and comfort of the fireplace in your private suite. The deep, free-standing tub in the bathroom beckons and the underfloor heating chases the chill from the smooth rock floor.
