&Beyond Leadwood Lodge

Once you have experienced a stay at Leadwood Lodge you’ll be longing to take root there as deeply as the ancient trees after which the Lodge is named.

The intimate &Beyond Leadwood Lodge is the ideal choice small groups of friends or family sharing an African safari. Nestled in the fork of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers, Leadwood Lodge offers a cosy and serene getaway that is completely at peace with the bush that surrounds it.

With only four suites carefully distanced from each other, Leadwood Lodge is ideal for families or parties of friends who want to share their safari experiences without intruding on each other’s privacy. When booked for individual use, rather than sole-use, we only ever use three suites, so the number of guests on the game drive vehicle is never more than six.
