Leobo Private Reserve

Leobo Private Reserve

Waterberg, Johannesburg, South Africa


Based within South Africa’s beautiful Waterberg region which offers an abundance of wildlife and archaeological history, this malaria-free destination was voted Africa’s 

Best Safari Lodge since it opened and won Best Family Safari Experience in Africa in 2018. The Reserve consists of two luxury properties: the ultra-stylish Observatory Villa and the chalet chic Leobo Lodges. Both have breath-taking views across the reserve. It is one of the few sole-use private reserves in all of Africa, meaning guests get full access to the entire reserve and exclusive use of all its facilities.

From horseback riding, hippo camping, mountain biking, target shooting, helicopter sight-seeing, elephant riding, tug-of-war with the resident crocodile or with the help of a local astronomer Philip Calcott, he will host an educational evening on the night sky. This luxury lodge holiday has a thrilling experience for everyone.

The dedicated staff is what also gets applauded at Leobo.
