Glorious Leobo is situated on a 20 000-acre private reserve overlooking the Palala Valley within the beautiful Waterberg mountains and is near to The Observatory. Just a three-hour drive north of Johannesburg, the lodge sleeps 22 in 9 chalets and caters for adults as well as young explorers. This is a safari destination where things are done a little differently – the superb exclusive-use private villa allows your group to feel completely at home, with no structured daily programs or time restrictions. You are entertained by the team of staff as friends of the owner, and activities seamlessly blend into one another until you have done so much more than you ever imagined possible.
Perfect for family and friends, Leobo has a wide range of activities, which include game driving by day or night thanks to thermal imaging equipment, a helicopter tour of the surrounding bush, quad-biking, horse-back safaris, fishing and elephant riding, to name but a few! For those who wish to tread a little lighter on the wild side, there is a heated swimming pool, with a thatched cabana for when the African sun is at its highest and a telescope for unparalleled stargazing once the nights are inky black. A cook will tailor-make a menu for your group and ensure that you don’t have to lift a finger. Meals can be enjoyed inside, at the dining table on the enormous deck with its panoramic views and sunken seating around the fire-pit, or in the boma, where everybody eats around a bonfire under the stars.
