We stayed for one night as guests and had two safaris on the Amakhala reserve as part of the stay. It was fantastic. From the lovely welcome we received by Kerry and Steve who manage the country house, to the great meal we had in the evening with good company and excellent friendly service on offer. The visit was a treat and a great way to start our adventure in the Eastern Cape. We also visited the famous uncle Bills bar and had a couple of glasses of wine with the great man and his lovely wife Rose. What a treat.
Overall if you are looking for a truly African experience that includes an opportunity to go on safari and return to a genuine African country home, then you will find it hard to beat Leeuwenbosch Country house. Give it a try.
