Where to start? Really impressive venue with the most amazing views. The website does not do it justice. We organised our wedding with Jakes via the U.K over a period of months and he had outdone himself. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the location of the lodge is what makes it stand out above the rest,literally and figuratively speaking.... More

A well deserved family drive to one of the most spectacular lodges in the country.

Friendly staff and an inviting atmosphere is all we were hoping for and what we got was so... More

First impression lasts, as we were Friendly greeted and assisted at the Reception desk with Nicoleen & Jakes. They were so helpful with any enquiries and questions we had regarding the lovely venue. They also assisted my mother who cannot walk properly and Jakes help her up the stairs to reception without us asking for assistance. Food was STUNNING and... More

We enjoyed the Big Sunday Lunch event and were not disappointed. Wide choice of Starters, Mains and of course the sweets, my favourite. I chose the Roast Lamb as a main and it was delicious. Best was the view from our table in the Boma with dappled shade and a magnificent view of the Hartbeespoort Dam. Can't beat the feeling... More

Had a family wedding here that was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful scenery and gardens, stylish yet relaxed atmosphere with lots of space. The food was excellent. Even the drive from the gate to the lodge yielded some interesting wildlife and birdlife.

From every angle you can see the beautiful Hartbeesport Dam. The rooms are thatched & have this lovely smell. Looking out the window was my favourite thing to do, the views are breathtaking. The food was lovely & fresh. Keep your camera close by for the drive in & out, you will be greeted by Zebra`s & Giraffes

A very nice place! Great views of the dam (best view of the dam) and the mountain. Look out for Vultures. The restaurant itself is very attractive and the staff were very friendly. We only had starters and main courses. We just found the cooked veg not fresh but everything was well presented and tasty otherwise. Would i come back?... More

Awesome setting, awesome views, awesome sunrise over the dam (Harties), very good service and a craft beer on-tap!! One small failing and that was, due to it being quite windy, there was fine thatching falling down from the roof of the cabin which covered everything. No wind, no falling thatch! Otherwise, as said at start, awesome all round!

Thank Starls

High up on the solid rock face of the Magaliesberg Mountains, a gorge rips straight into the rock. The gorge is softened only by a blanket of shrubs and trees which have grown over millennia, watered by the purest, cleanest water imaginable. It is only when one drives in the gate of Leopard Lodge that you realise what has been left behind. The lodge has a 4 star grading and the main building houses the reception rooms, restaurant, bar, conference rooms and large verandah. The lodge has a peaceful atmosphere and yet, situated near Hartbeespoort, it’s just a short 55km drive from the hustle and bustle of Sandton and 60km from Pretoria. So come on, pop in for a visit - come and experience our new look - wow! To try out our fine cuisine, our Restaurant boasts a delightful A la Carte Menu and a splendid Sunday Lunch Buffet.
