We had the amazing opportunity to break away as a married couple. We do not often get these opportunities so it is always such a bonus to find such hidden gems as this one. As Rob's wife puts it so humbly "we are prisoners of beauty". Due to the riots, we were unable to travel home as scheduled. Rob was kind enough to offer us accommodation on the house for a couple of nights to allow things to settle. We were grateful as we did did not feel safe to travel on the road as yet and Rob allowing us the space to rest until we felt safe enough to take the road back home. THANK YOU Rob for the kindness and compassion clearly visible in all your dealings. You might wonder why Butterfly Boulevard as the title of this getaway...why not take the enchanted forest walk and find out why ... so magical 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 The added bonus was that we could enjoy more of Ntombhi's delicious food. Ntombhi you are truly one of the family at Leopard walk ... thank you for your beautiful soul keep shining. Forever grateful and honoured to have met such beautiful souls (including Luna) on our journey ❤ Dee & Gert

We just got back from Leopard walk lodge. I love this place. The Lodge is, serene, clean, private and an lots of wild life. we stayed at the secrets of the forest Suite A. The Room was beautiful with the glass view. the fact that there is no T.V in the room makes staying at nature more real. each cottage is private and far from the next. there is a nature trail for anyone that wants to walk around. the Buffet dinner was good and breakfast was your usual English breakfast. If you have a car, take note that there is a few kms of sandy road getting into the lodge however it is not bad and easy for a car to get in and out. it is close to Hluhluwe game reserve, the reptile park and Isimangaliso wetlands park, the false bay Gate. You are also allowed to bring your own snacks and some drinks for your room as they have a bar fridge. The hospitality, all i can say is WOW, i have to first start with, Sne, amazing at what she does. She took care of all our requirements, made us feel welcome and did this all with a smile on her face. The rest of the staff were just as friendly. The owner, made time to chat and share insights into the lodge and the animals. Overall all it was a 5 star service from everyone. 3rd: The external activities, we just did the game drive at Hluhluwe game reserve which Sne booked for us. Our tour was done with UMhluhluwe Safaris. Lee whom was our tour guide, was fantastic and experienced. i would recommend him for all tours, whether private or through the lodge.

We had a wonderful stay at Leopard Walk Lodge. The service was exceptional, the food delicious, and the rooms beautifully kept. It was wonderful to be out in nature, and to be given the flexibility to come and go. We thoroughly enjoyed our bush walk and really value their effort to conserve and protect some of our endangered species, especially the drey and red duikers.
