Leopard's View Game Lodge, Sable Road, Balule Nature Reserve, Hoedspruit, 1380
View on Map
Arguably the most unique and exciting game lodge in the entire BIG FIVE Kruger Park region!
We have only three thatched, en suite, authentic African style rondavels, which means we can accommodate only six people, eight if two are children! While you are in camp, we try to disturb you as little as possible, leaving you plenty of time to really get to know the bush without us hovering around, without deliveries, phone calls and people working around you. However, we don’t ignore you – we will be around just enough to look after your needs.
Leopard’s View Game Lodge is fully catered and we do not have any self-catering facilities. We provide three full meals per day as well as afternoon tea and homemade cakes. Breakfast always includes fruit, yogurts, cereals and full English breakfast to order. Lunch is generally a light, salad-based meal. In the evening, we provide a top-quality three-course dinner or a traditional South African braaivleis (BBQ).
Meals are served in our thatched deck area or sometimes out in the open, with views over our waterholes and the valley below so game viewing continues through meals (which are indeed interrupted on occasion by the arrival of some exciting species.)

Directions To Balule Nature Reserve
From Johannesburg (OR Tambo International Airport) to Hoedspruit
From Car Rentals, take the R21 signed to Boksburg – you need the right-hand lane immediately you come out of the covered Car Rental area.
After a few kilometres, take the N12 signed to Witbank & Middelburg. The N12 joins the N4 at Witbank. Continue along the N4 until Belfast.
At Belfast turn off the N4 on the R540: the road goes into the centre of the town and then is signed to the right to Dullstroom and Lydenberg.
In Lydenberg, take the R36: the signs are not very clear, so care is needed. Go through Ohrigstad, and over the Abel Erasmus pass.
Option 1 - quicker: About 10 km after the Pass and the Strijdom Tunnel, take the R36 signed to Tzaneen to the left; after 10 km turn right on the R530 signed to Phalaborwa. After 23 km turn right at the T-junction with the R40 signed to White River. After 11 km turn left into the Balule Nature Reserve entrance (there is a sign about 200 m before the entrance which says “Balule Olifants West Gate”, and there is an 80 km speed limit sign as well.)
Option 2 - slower: About 10 km after the Pass and the Strijdom Tunnel, the R36 signed to Tzaneen goes off to the left; however, stay on the road that goes straight, the R527 to Hoedspruit. In Hoedspruit, turn left at the fourth stop sign (it’s a four-way stop) onto the R40, signed Phalaborwa, and drive north for 16.4 km. Turn right into the Balule Nature Reserve entrance (there is a sign about 200 m before the entrance which says “Balule Olifants West Gate”, and there is an 80 km speed limit sign just after that.)
Distance from OR Tambo International Airport – 465 km. Allow 51/2 to 6 hours, inclusive of stops.
Take the R40 to White River, Hazyview, Bosbokrand, Klaserie and Hoedspruit. From the four-way stop on the R40 at Hoedspruit drive north for 16.4 km. Turn right into the Balule Nature Reserve entrance (there is a sign about 200 m before the e
