My wife and I selected the Honeymoon package which was well worth it. The room was great and had all necessary amenities. It was peaceful, secluded and felt like living in a forest. The pathway towards the room is part of the experience as well and we would often stumble upon

Thank you for telling us about how much you enjoyed the experience of staying at our Lodge and Reserve for your honeymoon. We often think about how the natural forest emits peace and helps one to relax and unwind from the usual busy day stress. We think its because it enables one to "touch" nature be at one with the biodiversity of the natural world. The route of the pathway to the Secrets of the Forest Suites was carefully established and it winds through the forest to ensure little impact to the trees. The animals seem to enjoy using it too and are thus often seen along the way, together with the many species of birds and sometimes even a tortoise and of course the many species of butterflies. At times a little family of mongoose may also be seen as they dart across the pathway. We are pleased that you found Dale and Rob and the staff to be excellent and friendly. We all appreciate our guests and we always strive to ensure their needs are attended to. The dining, lounge and reception at the main lodge have cell signal, television and free WIFI but resisting to be bothered in the suites by electronic disturbance does seem to have benefits. It is great to know that you enjoyed your honeymoon at Leopard Walk Lodge and we hope you will visit us once again sometime in the future. Thank you once again for your lovely review.

We appreciate that you have so kindly thanked us for contributing to your stay that you found so amazing! It is great to know that you found the staff to be very friendly and helpful as we know they love to host visitors and they also seem to have naturally friendly dispositions. It is our pleasure to share knowledge about our magnificent area that inspires us with its natural beauty and biodiversity. It is indeed a very special place and the Elephant Coast and Route 22 has so many diverse opportunities to enjoy both its biodiversity and wonderful Zulu Culture. We look forward to hosting your stay again. Thank you once again for your kind review.

The staff, management and accommodation at Leopard Walk Lodge are fantastic. This was our second year visiting the lodge and the same staff members made our stay as memorable as the last time. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated - and the aircon was fantastic in the 35

Thank you for your lovely review and for letting us know that you enjoyed the accommodation and also the management of the Lodge. It is an honor to know that you chose us again for your getaway. The setting of Secrets of the Forest suites provide a great option to enjoy family bonding and we are sure that your young sons, not having the usual distractions, but by being at one in Nature, will remember their special time with you for many years henceforth. Summer months in Zululand can have high temperatures and we find air cons help to ensure cool comfort and of course relaxing in a cool Jacuzzi bath or in the swimming pool is a sure way to also enjoy the climate during the hotter months. Thanks once more for your kind review and we do hope that you will visit us for the 3rd time in the future.

Amazing technology free weekend. Coming from the city, this lodge helped me to switch off and really relax due to no TV in the room and hardly any reception on our cellphones (the dining area has wifi and reception). The picture shows a Zebra by the dining area. We actually saw

Thank you for letting us know that you appreciated and enjoyed your stay. We had to decide whether or not to include Televisions and other technology in the rooms so we asked our guests. Popular request was to keep nature as the focus and this has proved to be very inspiring to many that enjoyed family bonding, falling in love again and relaxing with wildlife as the main entertaining feature - all because interference of busy day technology was given a break! Of course for anyone that may be keen to watch an important rugby game or similar, there is a TV at the main lodge. The Jacuzzi bath, each one totally private set next to each Secrets of the Forest suite, is another special relaxing feature. We are pleased that your children also loved their experiences. Thank you once again for your lovely review.

We reserved the best two suites for ourselves and our son and his wife. These are unique, very private buildings in a sand forest, with glass on all four sides, inside shower and bath facilities and an outside bath, which we particularly enjoy - a bath in the bush with an

We are delighted when guests re visit us - thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay once again. Indeed we do find that guests simply love the suites that have such amazing views through the glass "walls" wrapped all around, to allow the forest in. One of the special features as you mention is the relaxed wildlife that wander past even at times when a guest is in the outdoor Jacuzzi bath. We do regret that the entries into Isimangaliso Wetland Park are at times questionable. We have taken this up with management of Katanga the security firm managing the park entries. We will be awaiting some accurate information regarding the exact official requirement for entry rates etc to ensure that our Guests do not get conflicting information at various gate entries. Thank you once again for your review and we are pleased that you really enjoyed your stay and do hope you will visit again.
