Good day to all our Leopard’s Tail readers!

Happy Birthday Leopard Mountain.
November 1999 the Vivier family began their journey in the Safari industry and what a journey it has been. With a tragic start of having the main lodge building struck by lightning and burning down in a matter of 12 minutes, only 3 months after opening, we rebuilt with bitter sweet sweat & tears. With only five chalets and a handful of guests catered for by a team with no experience but a huge amount of pride, enthusiasm and optimism the adventure was well on its way; the small nature reserve that was Leopard Mountain boasted a variety of antelope, leopard and smaller animals. Little did the family know that with in just a few years, through hard work and a true passion for the industry they would almost double their amount of chalets and staff? Now with 9 luxury chalets, a heavenly Spa and a team of 32 staff with over 100 years’ experience between them, the lodge accommodates guests from all over the world in our unique, relaxed style.
