Hearty South African portions and world-wide recipes team up with international standards of service and first-class presentation to bring you the menu of a lifetime. Every meal is catered for so you won’t ever have to worry about booking, cooking or cleaning the dishes!

Breakfast is a Continental affair with a choice of refreshing fruits, soulful cereals or a Full English for those missing the tastes of home. Timed to perfection, the morning meal is served directly after the first game drive of the day to keep appetites happy and guests raring to go.

Lunch is a casual occasion served in the shade of lodge umbrellas so that you can enjoy the bright, midday sunshine. The food is anything but laidback though with the chefs working tirelessly to produce superb food made from the best local ingredients to modernise traditional recipes.

Dinner is the highlight of any dining experience at Leopard Hills with a choice of setting and style, from a romantic menu in a candle-lit boma (outdoor enclosure) to silver service in the dining room. Private dinners on suite decks can also be arranged for those wishing to eat their meals in a little more seclusion.

LEISURE

A thrilling experience is always just around the corner at Leopard Hills with fantastic activities that range from hot air balloon rides to blissful spa breaks. Catering to every need, the menu of things to do at this reserve offers guests their own choice of pace whether you want to take it easy and play a few rounds of golf or pack your day with all manner of adrenaline fuelled outings in helicopters and 4x4s. So, switch it up, keep it simple or get ready to go, go, go – there’s a world of exclusive outings just waiting for you to discover them.

Get ahead of the game

In more than 10,000 acres of South African grassland, there is bound to be a diverse and abundant group of exotic creatures. Home to the Big Five, Sabi Sands certainly fulfils this expectation with common sightings of elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and other fantastic animals.

And what better way of sighting all these than with a guided game drive? As each day brings something new and wonderful, no two wildlife tours will be the same as you venture out into the fascinating world of the African bush. A knowledgeable and experienced ranger conducts the tours in the early mornings and late evenings (as this is when the animals are most likely to be active) from open game viewing vehicles. Passionate photographers will also find ample demand for their film as Leopard Hill prides itself on offering rangers with a passion for the art and a wealth of professional tips and tricks for getting that perfect photo. Why not book a private game drive so that you can indulge your enthusiasm at your leisure?

Fly me to the moon

Fancy seeing things from a different point of view? Take advantage of the amazing offers for helicopter and hot air balloon rides. The Mpumalanga Helicopter Company provides a spectacular tour service, Cascades & Canyon Delight, that picks you up from your lodge and follows the Sabie River Valley, soaring above vast plains and mountainous pinnacles, climbing waterfalls and sweeping over deep canyons. For an extra special outing, choose the Cascades & Canyon Picnic Flight for an unbeatable day out with someone special.

If you’re up for an even more thrilling ride, get onboard with the park’s hot air ballooning experience. Feel lighter than a feather and wonderfully safe as you float along over the thundering savannah of Sabi Sands. With flights starting at dawn and lasting for one hour, you can watch in awe as the reserve’s wildlife stampedes on the grassy plains below while you drift in the early morning light over the Big Game Country.

Meet the elephant in the room

Get ready to get trunky with it because these big beauties are going to blow you away. We know, that was cheesy but seriously, what exclusive safari experience would be complete without a little elephant meet and greet? Elephant Whispers offers guests the chance to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience without any of the moral qualms – learn about the peaceful giants from the experienced elephant handlers, exchange trunk greetings and even see things from a different perspective by riding on the elephants’ back for short periods.

Found in the Sandford Conservancy by the Sabie River, Elephant Whispers is the place to go if you want a complete African experience. And remember – an elephant never forgets, and neither will you.
