It could not be a better place to rest body and mind after a challenging and exhausting year. I was looking for calm, peaceful and reconnection with nature. It was perfect. What a bountiful and nurturing nature indeed! And what a beautiful place, from design to service. A very special place. Many thanks for a heavenly stay!

I would easily give this 10 stars if I could. The staff is perfectly attentive and accommodating. Upon arrival we were greeted by staff and offered a cold beverage as we checked in. We were so lucky to stay in one of the new luxury suites which included our own plunge pool and fire pit, yoga platform, indoor and outdoor shower, and wrap around deck. Each morning I woke up to the sounds of the young impalas sparing and could watch them from the comfort of my bed! The rooms are stunning and so private and comfortable. Our game drive guide was fantastic and our sundowners were beautiful with our favorite beverages. We hiked all over the property and up onto a ridge that feels like the end of the world in the most magnificent way! We choose a few of the more difficult hikes, but also enjoyed a very easy trek around the property as well. The bird watching from the deck of our suite and the main lodge was unreal! There are hundreds of different birds to observe. Really spectacular! For cooler days, there is a game room with views of the water holes. There you can warm up by the fire, curl up with a book, play cards or mancala, or make your own bracelet. The food was also fantastic. Every meal. We had a diverse group of eaters from vegan to paleo and we all enjoyed beautifully prepared and delicious food. We were never with out options and enjoyed afternoon tea at our leisure. I got a massage while I was there. I was celebrating my birthday while there and the massage table had a flower petal greeting of "Happy Birthday" for me. The massage was wonderful. There is not a single thing I would have changed about our stay except to have been able to stay there longer. The owners are so gracious and warm. It was really an unforgettable experience. Without question or hesitation I will return on my next trip to South Africa later this year.

we enjoyed the game drive and beautiful scenery. Luvhondo living area was well equipped for a large crowd and very comfortable. All the facilites around the rondavels were used and nice to have diversified facilites. Look out 70m from the rondavels is an amazing vista view. beds in the rooms are exceptionally comfortable.

I was lucky enough to spend one night ( way too short ) on this amazing farm . The abundance of animals together with the beautiful mountains , trees and general landscape make this a very special spot to visit . The accommodation is perfectly situated and beautifully furnished - One can see that this place is loved by its people !!

Our stay at H12 Leshiba was truly fantastic in every sense! The personal touches and attention to detail were amazing! The peace & tranquility was surrounding the lodge was exactly what we needed and wanted. The lodge staff were incredibly friendly and as always, very helpful.
