The views from the main veranda are stunning, take a book and relax for the afternoon.

Insider's View

Two generations of leopard have raised their cubs in camps, meaning sightings are generally very good from here

Location & Directions

Sabi Sands, South Africa

Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve traverses over 10,000 hectares in the western sector of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park. It is approximately 500km due east of Johannesburg.

When to go

There is no bad time to go on safari in the Kruger National Park. The experience does, however, change from month to month. In the summer months (October to March), it gets very hot. The verdant vistas are all the more spectacular because of the rains, but this means that the foliage is denser, water is more abundant and game is therefore trickier to see. There are lots of beautiful migratory birds during the summer months. While the daytime temperature in the winter months (May to September) is ideal, it does get a little chilly at night and in the early morning.
