UNIQUE SELLING POINTS
  •   Leobo Private Reserve is a completely private 20,000 acre estate based in the beautiful Waterberg mountains, 3 hours drive north of Johannesburg and home to probably the most stunning safari house in Africa not only from an architectural and style perspective but also as a fantastic bush safari home for families and small groups.
  •   We don’t offer time-tabled game drives, rigid programs or meals at set times. Of course you can go on game drives whenever you like, day or night – whenever suits you. But Leobo Reserve is for people who want a bit more out of life than a bunch of Kodak shots of the Big Five. You can do anything if you like...Just ask!

ABOUT THE LODGE

Leobo Lodge, locatedA at the top of an escarpment, is a safari lodge that can sleep up to 18 people in beautiful chalets overlooking the Palala Valley. Rooms that can accommodate children are available and the lodge is fully staffed. Meals can be enjoyed inside, on the enormous deck complete with sunken seating fire-pit, or in the Boma, where everybody eats around a fire under the stars. There are eight cottages built into the side of the escarpment. All are equipped with en-suite bathrooms with doors that open onto a private deck – providing views that stretch to the horizon. The Lodge has a really comfortable rustic feel, it has two open fireplaces and plenty of space for relaxing inside, on two levels. The large dining table can seat fourteen people easily — there is also an outside dining table with a large parasol where you can have any meal with wonderful views over the bush. A covered verandah with large sofas, coupled with the huge deck, provides a number of fantastic places where you can sunbathe or relax in the evening. The Lodge has an enourmous deck manufactured from antique railway sleepers. With commanding views of the Palala Valley and a nearby water hole, you can relax with a drink while watching the sun go down or take in the amazing night skies from the lodge’s sunken firepit. The swimming pool has been carved into the side of a hill and sits perched high – with amazing views of Palala Valley. If you feel like relaxing for the day it is an amazing spot. If you need to escape the sun, there is also a thatched cabana. The lodge’s chef will customise a menu to suit any dietary requirements. Meals can be served on the deck or, if you prefer, around the nightly fire in the Boma. It is also possible to eat at a number of special spots in the bush.


ABOUT THE RESERVE

Leobo Private Reserve, we like to do things a little differently. Like all African safari lodges, you can stay in unparalleled luxury, enjoy delicious food and take in a beautiful part of Africa. That goes without saying. But what we are really about is offering you a completely unique experience. The reserve is rented on an exclusive basis only. You don’t share it with any other guests; it’s your playground for the duration of your stay. We don’t offer timetabled game drives, rigid programs or meals at set times. Of course you can go on game drives whenever you like, day or night - whenever suits you. But Leobo Reserve is for people who want a bit more out of life than a bunch of Kodak shots of the Big Five. You can do anything if you like. Just ask. We’ll give you the opportunity to enjoy a life experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come. You don’t need to be mad or crazy or an adrenalin junkie. Just an individual, a couple, or a bunch of friends who truly believe in enjoying themselves.

The Waterberg is a diverse environment, offering an abundance of wildlife. Rich in archaeological history and Bushman paintings, it is considered to be one of the geological wonders of the world.

The Waterberg offers a mosaic of exceptional scenic landscape, a fascinating cultural heritage, an abundance of wildlife species and many nature-based tourism opportunities. Vaalwater is the central village of the Waterberg area, the heart of the Bushveld region. The Waterberg has been described as South Africa's best keep secret. Its rugged beauty, together with its diversity in plant and animal life, has led to the development of several exciting eco-tourism projects such as the biosphere reserve, the Waterberg Nature Conservancy - the amalgamation of conservation areas in order to protect more than 150 000 hectares of the Waterberg-habitat.

The Waterberg-range, incorporating many rivers, streams and swamps, stretches for 150 kilometres in a long arc from Thabazimbi in the West, Nylstroom in the centre to Potgietersrus in the east. Apart from the spectacular scenery of the mountains themselves, there are many game sanctuaries, nature reserves and farms. The 75 mammal species include big game such as elephant, lion, white and black rhino, hippo, leopard and buffalo. African python and the Nile crocodile are also resident, and it is a birdwatchers' paradise with more than 300 bird species.
