Leobo Private Reserve, while not a private residence, is a spectacular property that I just needed to share.
It's not like any other game lodge; it's available only on an exclusive use basis but you and your guests will have the entire 12,000 acres of pristine private African wilderness at your disposal.
The main house is stunning; it's James Bond cool and African bush rustic. Leobo was designed by award winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, who created a private, state-of-the-art, house with its own fully automated research-grade observatory tower to view the night sky in world class conditions.
On the Bond side of the coin, there is a full team of staff to make your stay one of complete luxury and relaxation, including butlers and a talented private chef.
Leobo Private Reserve is fantastically well equipped for fun – there are quad bikes, dirt buggies, horses, mountain bikes, motor bikes, helicopters, clay shooting, fishing and more, all to use at your leisure, with no rules or time constraints. See the abundance of wild game on horseback, quad or from the comfort of a Land Cruiser, all with the commentary of an expert.
Then come home and dine on a 5-star meal, relax in the pool watch the sunset and then retire to your own private bedroom oasis.
Leobo Private Reserve is located in Limpopo Province, the northernmost province of South Africa and can accommodate up to 26 guests.
