Suite Leopard is an elegant getaway, perched atop a cliff in the spectacular Nambiti Game Reserve, in an exclusive Lodge nestled in the heart of the wilderness and raw, natural beauty.
With stunning views over the River Sunday and surrounding bush, this chic eco-lodge blends the best of local Zulu hospitality and stylish resort living. Impeccably finessed with natural raw materials, polished timbers, local design work and pristine fabrics and silk prints.
Sophisticated, yet earthy - this chic retreat strikes the right note. Think stone hearths with a colonial safari vibe, refined with crisp linens and sleek finishes. Gallic elegance meets African panache with much-regaled dining - eating here is a sensory journey.
This stylish haven offers both privacy - it is ideal as a romantic getaway for a couple, as well as convivial spaces, including the “boma”, the bar, the beautiful terrace, the patio and the infinity pool. Overlooking the Sunday River, guests can enjoy staggering views of the savannah and the bush. Taking an outdoor shower, with the sounds and scents of nature around you will be an unparalleled experience.
The graceful bedroom has a four-poster bed with billowing drapes, a private terrace with stunning views and a sedate living space. Guests may enjoy a glass of South African wine on the terrace while the sun softens over the savannah, and then, wandering down for a meal under the stars will be a culinary delight (highly rated restaurant.)
For a magical safari experience, with all the comfort and services needed for a seamless stay, Suite Leopard ticks all the boxes and adds a little dash of something special for a memory-making trip.
Set in the northwest of KwaZulu-Natal Province, Suite Leopard is in an exclusive eco-resort in the Nambiti Game Reserve, around 2.5-3 hours driving time from Durban and Johannesburg. Twenty-five minutes from the local town, Ladysmith, which is worth a visit for its historical interest, including the Siege Museum and battlefield memorials.
Here guests can enjoy unrivalled access to nature and wildlife, taking trips out with a personal ranger, with peerless close encounters with the animals prowling in their natural habitat. In a malaria-free zone, Nambiti is the only game reserve in the region with the Big 5, and in addition has 40 other species of game including cheetah, giraffe, hippo, hyena, impala, eland and zebra, and hundreds of bird species.
The reserve is only one hour from Drakensberg Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which offers a range of other activities including hiking, rafting, horseback riding, biking, 4 x 4, fly fishing and boating.
With fine dining, a stunning infinity pool, communal areas and pampering massages, heading back to the lodge after a day out in the wild will be a pleasure.
