Leopard Mountain

Leopard Mountain was our little bit of luxury for the trip and we certainly chose well. With our own private hut with king size bed,balcony, hammock and fantastic view from the escarpment over the bush we were really impressed with this place. The service was superb (could really teach our British hospitality trade a thing or two) with nothing to much trouble. Breakfast was enormous and we had the option of one or both of morning and evening game drives (to the river to look at game tracks or a high point to watch sunset). A hige drum was beat to announce the 5 course meal for dinner (great selection of wines too). We didnt want to leave! The staff taught us all about the Funnleweb Spider and the Nyala antleope that doesnt fight with its antlers but dances as a mating ritual - best dancer wins the girl and showed us Leopard, Elephant and Porcupine tracks among others. we went for a game walk with a local ranger who had a fantastic knowlege of the bush.
