Leopard Corner Lodge is under new ownership & management as from 01 March 2021 & has since undergone a total upgrade and renovations to the Lodge occurred during March & April 2021. Leopard Corner is a 4 Star Luxury Lodge situated on the edge of the forest in St Lucia, South Africa. Leopard Corner began a decade ago when its doors opened to the world. We now have 9 En-suite rooms that can accommodate up to 32 persons in total. Each room has an undercover balcony/patio. Four rooms have garden views. Three rooms share a big wooden deck balcony/patio overlooking the forest surrounding St Lucia, while two rooms have private wooden deck patios/balconies. Four rooms have wheelchair friendly bathrooms and the whole Lodge is wheelchair accessible. Three of our rooms are luxury rooms and are fitted with glass showers, spa-baths and twin basins (these 3 rooms are ideal for Honeymoon Couples). Leopard Corner's wooden deck patio adjacent to the pool is where the full English and Continental breakfast (hot and cold) is served.

It was our third time returning to Leopards Corner Lodge. Esmerie and her staff, as always, made our stay feel like home away from home. This four star lodge is located in a prime area of St Lucia and even with its upmarket design, very much affordable and thus provides great value for
money. The lodge is spick and span, and the breakfast inuded is big and scrumptious and always served with a smile! Esmarie also prepared us the best breakfast packs on the mornings we went out early. The lodge has a beautiful and tranquil outdoor area next to a pool where you can relax and catch up on some reading, or at night time, scan for the regular visiting hippos. The rooms are spacious, smells amazing and lacks nothing. There is a saying we have in Afrikaans: "haar hande staan vir niks verkeerd nie" and there is nothing more true when it comes to Esmerie. She is always on standby and ready to add value to your experience at Leopards Corner Lodge and in St Lucia. Hope to visit again, sooner than later!

Thank you for making my Mom and sisters stay so comfortable. My Mom is 85 and finds it very difficult to walk. The rooms were wheelchair friendly including the bathroom. The shower was very well fitted out for elderly people, making it very sage to shower.

Absolutely amazing. Lovely manager and employees. 100% recommend to stay here. Over all just a fantastic environment for a family holiday coming from Australia. They promptly clean the rooms every day to perfection, breakfast every morning is amazing and handy as you can go out and enjoy your day afterwards with activities the manager is more then happy to help you with organizing such as tours for whales, hippos and suggestions about visiting the many reserves that surround st Lucia to see all the wildlife.

We spent two nights in this lovely guest house and we would have wanted to stay longer.
Our room was very comfortable, with big bed and all the stuff needed, they even offer the use of a cooler box that is necessary in summer (we didn’t use it because it was winter). The bathroom is big and very well equipped.
They have a generator in case of loadshedding and that is very good; we slept well and we didn’t feel any noise from it.
The manager Esmerie is kind, skilled and very keen to help for every information or need, it was a pleasure to meet her and all the ladies in the staff are kind and helpful as well.
Breakfast is lekker with a good choice of food.
The garden is very nice and well maintained, thanks to a young guy working there.
This is one of the best accommodation we’ve been in several trips in South Africa and it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg.

We had the best Guesthouse experience at Leopard Corner Guest House. We were warmly received by the owner Cor and hostess Esmarie and felt right at home from the moment we arrived. Esmarie truly went the extra mile for us in so many ways! The guesthouse is like a picture out of a classy travel magazine with artwork to match and the location absolutely magical. Getting to watch two hippos grazing in the front of the entertainment area whilst we were enjoying a nightcap was just the cherry on the cake. It's a good thing in this case if a leopard never changes his spots... Cause Leopard Corner Guest House is truly a gem in St Lucia. We will definitely be back!

We arrive at Leopards Corner needing a relaxing few days away. We where greeted by Esmerie the manger and we already felt at home. Covid rules applied and after going through the protocol required and saw how beautiful and clean our surroundings where, we immediately started to exhale. Stunning garden and swimming pool. Thatched coved patio is completely relaxing. The lounge area has the most stunning decor. The paintings painted by Nicholas Prinsloo are something to admire and enjoy.
We where given the key to our bedroom. A new extension to their BnB. The decor and bedroom was bright and clean. You have a bar fridge in your room. So take a bottle of wine to enjoy on your private deck off of your bedroom after a day out.

Dear Ruth. As owner, it is hartwarming to read a beautiful review like yours. Such nice and positive feedback like yours is worth reading over and over again. Thank you for this🙏🙏 Ps. Happy to hear you appreciated the art work of Nicholas Prinsloo, a close and dear friend of mine who sadly passed away a few years ago. South Africa lost a brilliant talented artist with his passing, but his work will keep on shining on the walls of our guest house, for our guests to appreciate. Thank you to you and your husband Colin for being such nice people and super super guests. You guys are always welcome at Leopard Corner Guest House. Please stay safe🙏🙏

What a great experience! This is a lovely welcoming guest house in a quiet street close to the town. The facilities are great, little touches such chilled water in the rooms, plenty of tea & coffee, chocolate and welcome notes make it so nice to stay. My room had a big spa bath which was wonderful after a long days drive. Breakfast was very nice and the staff here are so friendly and welcoming, so helpful and made you feel right at home. I will return here with family for another visit and will choose the Leopard Corner Lodge again for sure!

We had an amazing stay at Leopard Corner Lodge! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and communicated with us before we arrived, so when we arrived everything was ready for us. We went on a safari early the next day and they packed a basket for us to take along because we would miss the breakfast. The Lodge is super clean and beautiful. Would really recommend this gem!
