Leadwood Lodge

From ZAR 2230 B&B per night

Built by a team of artisans with locally sourced shale, Leadwood Lodge combines exceptional architecture, towering thatch and resplendent finishes against a backdrop of breath taking natural beauty. The décor is an eclectic merging of antique and organic Africa with one-of-a-kind artistic elements.

The lodge was designed on an ethic of ‘nothing straight, nothing painted’ and the final results are a masterpiece of earth, water, glass and hardwoods. Leadwood Lodge is a place of relaxation and tranquillity.
