Leobo Private Reserve - Leobo Lodge

Waterberg Mountains, South Africa

Part of the South Africa Safari & African Safari Collection

Leobo Lodge is part of the malaria-free Leobo Private Reserve. which is situated in the beautiful Waterberg region and overlooks the lush Palala Valley. The 8000 hectare (20 000 acre) estate is abundant in wildlife and rich in archaeological history and Bushman paintings as well as a mesmerising stretch of bushveld savannah interspersed with natural, crystal clear streams.

This vast nature reserve teams with plains game, birdlife and a crocodile named Stevie. No time constraints, no rules (except safety) and no limits. It is one of only a handful of sole-use private reserves in South Africa allowing guests full access to the entire reserve and all its facilities. Complete privacy and exclusivity is what Leobo Private Reserve is all about.

Leobo, which is the name for chameleon in Northern Sotho is a fitting name for this reserve. Just like this enchanting creature, guests can change their day at the drop of a hat, pretty much do whatever they want and be accommodated by the most obliging staff!

The Lodge is located at the top of an escarpment and can sleep up to 18 people in beautiful chalets overlooking the Palala Valley. It’s the perfect destination for a significant celebration, a long-awaited family reunion, small executive getaways or incentivised trips for corporate groups. With staff paying special attention to every requirement and nature providing a splendid background, your African bush venture will be as mesmerising as a starlit night sky in Africa.

Rooms that can accommodate children are available and the lodge is fully staffed. Meals can be enjoyed inside, on the enormous deck complete with sunken seating fire-pit, or in the Boma, where everybody eats around a fire under the stars.
