New Sunday Lunch A la Carte Menu instead of the traditional Buffet fare. An excellent idea personally not being a big fan of the typical SA Buffet experience where one tends to eat too much trying all that is there to try. Full menu is...More

Leopard Lodge is one of Hartbeespoort's hidden gems, but it is so worth it to drive all the way up the mountain! (The tarred road is easily accessible for all vehicles.) The food is very nice, the staff usually friendly, though a bit slow, and...More

Dear Apie, I too would be unimpressed and very annoyed if I found I was only given a hand towel in the bathroom. We do always provide bath towels as well as hand towels in all rooms and it was purely due to an oversight...More

A lovely wedding venue with breathtaking views from both the chapel and restaurant. The food was delicious and expertly presented. Sadly the waiters are rude and unfriendly and there appear to be a general lack of management on the floor. It was a cool evening...More

The reviewer seems to be mistaken about the event or date she attended. We did not have a Christmas Day buffet at our lodge on Christmas 25th December 2016. A private party booked the entire lodge for their wedding that day on a strictly exclusive...More

High up on the solid rock face of the Magaliesberg Mountains, a gorge rips straight into the rock. The gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown over millennia, watered by the purest, cleanest water imaginable. It is only when one drives in the gate of Leopard Lodge that you realise what has been left behind. The lodge has a 4 star grading and the main building houses the reception rooms, restaurant, bar, conference rooms and large verandah. The lodge has a peaceful atmosphere and yet, situated near Hartbeespoort, it’s just a short 55km drive from the hustle and bustle of Sandton and 60km from Pretoria. So come on, pop in for a visit - come and experience our new look - wow! To try out our fine cuisine, our Restaurant boasts a delightful A la Carte Menu and a splendid Sunday Lunch Buffet.
