About Black Leopard Mountain Lodge

The adventure begins as you arrive; the 800m drop down the mountain in our specially adapted 4x4 vehicles lets you know you're in for a treat! Black Leopard Mountain Lodge is set in the 6000 hectare malaria free Thaba Tholo Wilderness, and is home to a wide range of mammals, birds and flora.

This tented 'bush-luxury' lodge is owner run and Alan, Lynsey and their management team look forward to welcoming you to this unique lodge and setting. Enjoy a welcome drink on the pool deck with the bubbling stream below and a cliff face rising 500 meters above you.

Attention to detail is the order of the day and as you settle into your luxury tented units there is the anticipation of "the best nights sleep" on the large king size beds! Each unit is en suite with a wonderful outside bathroom that offers a shower and a Victorian ball and claw bath - grab a glass of wine, a good book and soak away the city stress whilst looking at the spectacular views from your bath.

Black Leopard Mountain Lodge is proudly 'off the grid' and provides its own electricity, water and waste removal. There are two pin plugs in the rooms for charging of phones, lap tops and cameras. Leave the hairdryers at home, but if you really need it we have an area where you can blow dry your hair but only when we run our generator.

Enjoy our famous 'Fireside Fare' or choose our self catering option in our cosy dining area as well as a couple of drinks in our bar with excellent views over the valley.

Enjoy a game drive or bush walk daily and get to know about the eco system as a whole with our experienced guides. Learn more about our Leopard Research Program and keep your eyes peeled for these wonderful yet elusive creatures.

When we say that Black Leopard Mountain Lodge is your 'Bush home away from home' we mean it and you'll most definitely leave us as one of the family!

                              Loved the place as it was secluded away from the noise and bustle of the city. The bush environment was exceptional and tents not close to the tents of other guests was a bonus. The staff was pleasant and helpful

                              A bush breakaway from the busy city life. Luxury tent accommodation, friendly staff. Unspoilt mountains.
