Tivemos um problema com nossa reserva feita pela Agoda no hotel Rafiki 2 dias antes da nossa hospedagem. O hotel por sua vez, indicou o hotel Leopard e nos auxiliou com a reserva. Aceitamos a troca da estadia, uma vez que iriamos permanecer apenas 1 noite nesse hotel, pois estavamos em transito entre Joanesburgo e Kruger Park. Foi uma grata surpersa! Achamos o hotel uma graça! Quarto amplo, jardins bem cuidados e a anfitriã muito simpática. O café da manhã é feito sob medida para você e foi muito aconchegante. Vimos zebras, bambis e girafas na porta do Hotel. Incrível. Jantamos no restaurante Rat and Creack e foi maravilhoso, comida muito boa, próximo ao hotel (4 minutos de carro) e um preço bem justo. Diferentemente de Jaonesburgo, nos sentimos seguros de estar na rua às 19h. Obrigada a todos.

We had booked for 3 nights and 4 days at Leopard's Lair Luxury Bush Lodge. The place is so beautiful, refreshing and the host was amazing. Lenè made sure that our rooms were of the best standard, prepared us the most amazing meals. We had breakfast every morning and on the last day we had to check out at 07:00, she made sure that she was at the lodge by 06:00 to prepare for us. Our rooms were cleaned by staff and we had no issues whatsoever. The communal was clean and always accessible. She also made sure that she had booked all activities that we had requested our behalf. We really had a great time

We have stayed there over my husband birthday day. The chalet is lovely , spacy with great hot tub. Arrange something special for him and whole bed was full of balloons and chilled champagne was waiting for us. The pool area is lovely. Breakfast in the morning more than expected. Only thing is that you cannot buy any drinks or cocktails so make sure you have your own. Highly recommend

At first I was very skeptical about this visit considering the racial undertone experienced when visiting this area from hosts.. upon arrival I realized that the lodge is at 694 considering that when I stayed at leadwood 695 I experienced a mess of being told that swimming pool is for private use only while I was a guest, no house keeping for my unit and no tissues, no wifi etc I got more concerned TO MY SUPRISE LEOPARDS LAIR WAS COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE..I WAS WELCOMED WITH SO MUCH KINDNESS AND GRACE BY CLAIRE, the unit was too beautiful the scenery was everything too. Best lodge to stay at while visiting hoedspruit.
