A Day At Leadwood Lodge
At &Beyond Leadwood Lodge, the days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife encounters and the nights to spoil you with the romance of Africa.
If you have booked &Beyond Leadwood Lodge for the sole use of your party, you will enjoy the dedicated services of a team of staff, including a ranger and tracker, as well as private 4x4 safari vehicle, and can spend your day as you prefer, instead of following the programme described below.
Morning Game Drive
As dawn breaks over the African bush, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day. Your ranger will discuss what you hope to see that day over fragrant tea or coffee and morning biscuits or rusks. Set out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle in the company of a ranger and tracker team, who will attempt to track your favourite animals. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is well known for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. You will stop for refreshments at a scenic spot during your drive.
If you wish, you can walk off your breakfast on a short walk near the Lodge, accompanied by your ranger, who will share his insight into the smaller animals and vegetation in the area. Lunch is served in the open air dining room, with its dramatic views of the riverbed.
Cool off with a refreshing dip in your fully sized private lap pool or indulge in an afternoon siesta. Over a late afternoon tea, your ranger will discuss what you hope to see during the afternoon game drive.
Evening Game Drive
This game drive begins in the late afternoon and lasts until after dark, when spotlights are used for a glimpse into the nocturnal bush life. Track spotted hyena as they call to each other on an evening hunt or look out for the beautifully patterned civet cat. Enjoy sundowners in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon.
Return to the Lodge for a mouthwatering dinner around a blazing fire in the boma. Linger over dessert and cognac or retire to the warm fireplace in your own suite.
