As part of a conservation area that covers over two million hectares (nearly five million acres), the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is best known for its exceptional Big Five game viewing opportunities. If the elusive leopard is high on your list of viewing in the African wilderness, this is the place to be.

Another rather special element of this world renowned reserve is that it shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, a must for every safari enthusiast. Wildlife within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve roams freely within the 65 000 hectares (160 600 acres) of this exceptional wilderness area, making your game viewing experience all the more special.

Shaded by ancient jackalberry and leadwood trees, Leadwood Lodge, situated on the wooded bank of the Sand River, is a place of serene solitude and ultimate luxury. Glass windows from the floor to the ceiling offer incredible views of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve for you to enjoy in luxurious comfort. With only four suites, Leadwood Lodge is an ideal African safari retreat. Exclusively intimate, here you can indulge in the cosy luxurious facilities and furnishings that perfectly compliment your African safari experience.

Ideal for families or friends who want to share their extraordinary safari together in Africa, &Beyond Leadwood Lodge is perfectly positioned for an intimately exclusive experience. Fully sized private plunge pools offer refreshing dips in the middle of the afternoon, blazing fires in the firepace, warmth in the cool of the evenings, dramatic views of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, and multi–leveled viewing areas for quiet reflection. Leadwood Lodge is a sanctuary in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve.

Leadwood Lodge consists of just four suites distanced from each other for solitude and serenity. The suites are designed with crushed stone, raw cement,  rough granite and glass. Each air conditioned suite has a fireplace, sitting room, ensuite bathroom, outdoor shower and private plunge pool. Leadwood Lodge is the perfect choice for a family or group of friends sharing a safari together.

Dining & Cuisine
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 comes creeping up, retire to the warmth and comfort of your own 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.    

Twice daily game drives - early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle traverse an area of 10 000 hectares (25 000 acres). Track the Big Five, as well as a rich variety of other game, in the company of an armed ranger and Shangaan tracker. Strict vehicle limits at animal sightings ensure the exclusivity of your wildlife experience and careful off-road driving positions you for the best photo opportunities. Rangers are constantly in touch with each other to help keep track of game and the sensitive approach methods used mean that the wildlife has become accustomed to the presence of vehicles.

Interpretive bush walks - in between game drives, take a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge and experience the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush. An armed ranger will accompany you and will share his vast knowledge of the local fauna and flora. Take in the intimate details of your surroundings, from the intricate patterns of a spider's web to the bright plumage of the local birds and the sharp alarms calls of a dozen small creatures.
