Kruger Game Reserves - S. Africa
LEOPARD HILLS - KRUGER The drive from Ulusaba to Leopard Hills is just 15 mins through the bush and what a welcome. The whole Leopard Hills team came out to meet us complete with welcome drinks. Leopard Hills is built on a hill overlooking a watering hole close to the Sand River. An exclusive Lodge with 8 beautifully appointed suites with private decks and plunge pools. Glass fronted suites ensure fantastic game viewing opportunities all through the day. Lodges 1, 2, 3 and 4 have the best views of the water hole. Suites are decorated with typical contemporary African style and elegance. Bathrooms feature twin stone showers inside and out and Victorian roll top baths. Two daily game drives are taken by professional game rangers who go out of their way to find you the best game viewing. Our morning game drive was spent tracking a female leopard and cub which was very exciting plus seeing a male Hyena take his Impala breakfast!! I particularly loved this reserve and the sundowners by the hippo waterhole were a fantastic memory. Would recommend packing just a small squashy bag if flying up to Kruger by light aircraft and leave any suitcases at Jo’burg. Shrink wrapping service available if required.
DAY 8 Back to Johannesburg by light aircraft after our morning game drive and the evening flight home back to Heathrow on British Airways.
I hope you have enjoyed my account of my trip to South Africa in a nutshell. This was my fourth visit in 15 years and certainly not my last. I hope to do a wine tour in the future amongst the Cape Winelands.
