Leopard’s View is owned by Neil and Ann Kern who took over this private game lodge in Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger Park, in May 2008.
We have a long association with South Africa and with the wildlife of the Lowveld in particular.
The dream of living and working in this area began while doing research in the Kruger National Park in 1976, so when Leopard’s View became available we seized the opportunity.
We think Leopard’s View Game Lodgeis a unique place, an exciting yet relaxing game lodge in the big-five Kruger Park region, with several things that make it special: exclusive yet affordable high-quality accommodation in a private game lodge; part of the big-five Greater Kruger Park; owner-managed and, not least, a fabulous location in the bush.
Leopard’s View Game Lodge is a small establishment.
We personally look after you when you stay with us and, along with our staff, make sure that you leave sharing our passion for this special place in the bush. We have only three thatched, en suite, authentic African-style rondavels, accommodating a maximum of 6 adult guests. The Lodge therefore represents a genuinely affordable but exclusive bush experience.

Leopard’s View Game Lodge enjoys easy access to major roads and regional airports and is conveniently close to the Kruger National Park and other regional attractions: yet it is situated deep in the unspoilt mixed-bushwillow woodlands of Balule Nature Reserve, with a full range of wildlife - the ‘big five’ and all the other mammal species - and superb bird life - at least 250 species have been recorded in the area.
To the west we have magnificent views of the great escarpment: to the east we look down into a beautiful valley and our own well-established and popular waterhole.
We would be delighted to share Leopard’s View with you: read our other pages to discover more about Leopard’s View Game Lodge, our top-class accommodation and facilities, excellent food, personal service and the wildlife experience on offer in Balule Nature Reserve and the Greater Kruger Park.
