Accommodation in Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Leadwood Game Lodge - Sabi Sand

Pivoting on a well-wooded bank of the Sand River in the heart of Big Five Country, Leadwood Private Game Lodge in the Sabie Sands brings new dimension to the African Safari experience.
A central lounge and dining room is fringed by a wooden deck that is suspended over the riverbed. With raw granite, intricate weaving and heavily textured wicker at your back, your view is an 180 degrees timeless expanse of riverine bushveld, unfettered by glass or brick. From this vantage point watch the elephant, buffalo and kudu.

Luxury open vehicles that seat eight guests, with your own skilled tracker and game ranger, seek out the unique experiences and interactions that make-up the primal drama of an African Safari. From the choreographed dance of swallows on the wing, to an audience with the ever-watchful Bateleur Eagle, the bird watchers find themselves enthralled and enchanted.

Imaginative and original cuisine constantly tempts the taste buds. Meals may be taken in your suite, or as a group in the dining room at the lodge itself. Fine wines may be selected from the wine cellar, and the enjoyment of sundowner drinks on any of the cascading decks under the trees, is an image not to forget. Dinners in the boma are truly African.

Room Description

Cocooned in natural bush where Jackalberry and Leadwood trees lend their shade, the four suites are distanced to offer solitude and serenity. Distinctive en-suite bathrooms provide all the comforts and pampering that you may desire.

Interiors are uncluttered yet contemporary, restrained yet cosseting. Each suite has a private eternity edge pool, wrapped around by a wooden deck and cupped by a granite wall, which comes alive with a fine spray.

Extra information

Child policy: Children under the age of 12 years are regrettably not permitted. There is, however, a children friendly policy at Exeter River Private Game Lodge.

What to bring and what to wear: From October to April, bring casual summer clothes. A warm jersey/sweater would be useful for the cooler morning and evening temperatures. From May to September, bring casual light clothing, but remember to bring a very warm, insulated or padded parka/jacket for the very cold mornings and nights – a scarf and gloves are very useful too! Cotton clothing in neutral colours is recommended and keep whites to a minimum, as white attracts certain bugs at night! Comfortable walking shoes, track shoes or boots for the bush walks makes life so much easier. Swimming costumes. Sun block / sun hat / sunglasses / lip balm. Cameras, binoculars and lots of film (film is also available at the curio shop, should you run out).  Video camera and a spare battery. (Batteries can be recharged in your suite. Electricity voltage is 220v - Converters and spare videocassettes are available on request).
