Privacy & Romance in the African Bush..
Sabi Sands Reserve, Greater Kruger
Once you have experienced a stay at &Beyond Leadwood Lodge you’ll be longing to take root there as deeply as the ancient trees after which the Lodge is named.
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. hared 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.
With only four suites carefully distanced from each other, andBeyond 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.
As dawn breaks over the African bush, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day.
Your ranger will discuss what you hope to see that day over fragrant tea or coffee and morning biscuits or rusks.
Set out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in the company of a ranger and tracker team, who will attempt to track your favourite animals.
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is well known for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. You will stop for refreshments at a scenic spot during your drive.
If you wish, you can walk off your breakfast on a short walk near the Lodge, accompanied by your ranger, who will share his insight into the smaller animals and vegetation in the area.
Lunch is served in the open air dining room, with its dramatic views of the riverbed. Cool off with a refreshing dip in your fully sized private lap pool or indulge in an afternoon siesta.
Over a late afternoon tea, your ranger will discuss what you hope to see during the afternoon game drive.
This game drive begins in the late afternoon and lasts until after dark, when spotlights are used for a glimpse into the nocturnal bush life.
Track spotted hyena as they call to each other on an evening hunt or look out for the beautifully patterned civet cat. Enjoy sundowners in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon.
Return to the Lodge for a mouthwatering dinner around a blazing fire in the boma. Linger over dessert and cognac or retire to the warm fireplace in your own suite.
