H12 Leshiba

3 stars

Set on top of the Soutpansberg Mountains within a 2600ha private game reserve, this is a family run, mountain retreat. Giraffe, zebra, rare brown hyena and leopard. Clay sculptures. Wood carvings and when you bathe, a sculpted girl bathes beside you. When you shower, your soap lies in a sculpted hand. Art shading your life. No electricity and phone reception and WiFi in short supply. You will climb above the clouds, you will be cut off. With a bit of luck, you will sleep like a baby.

This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

A selection of options. Venda Village Lodges is a traditional village recreated by the internationally renowned artist Noria Mabasa. Mwedzi and Duvha are secluded luxury suites, Tadulua, Naledzi and Miloro are the flagship suites, Luvhondo is for big groups and finally the Hamasha Bush Camp.

Venda Village Lodges: 5 ensuite African style round huts that open on to sunny courtyards. This is the ultimate blend of art and living space. Noria began sculpting after a recurring dream. She’s in her 80s now and internationally renowned. She’s still doing it too. Lounge, fireplace - indoor and outdoor. Pool deck with a view over the Duluni valley. 2 people per hut and there is one single one. 

Mwedzi and Duvha luxury suites: these sleep two. They’re ensuite with a large stone bath, double shower and outside shower. Private plunge pool and patio overlooking animals grazing on the plain below. Both suites are close to the lodge, but hidden in the bush, so they’re very private. Self catering.

Naledzi, Tadulu and Miloro: sleep two to four people. King size beds with wood burning fireplaces and a mini bar. It's a lavish affair. Wraparound decks. Plunge pools and open plan lounges (in Naledzi and Tadulu only).

Hamasha Bush Camp: you need you’re own transport here as you are pretty cut off. Better make it a 4x4 too. No WiFi, no phone reception. 8 people can share here. 2 units with 2 en-suite inter-leading bedrooms. Self catering. Braai. You’ll be surrounded by trees, high cliffs and the mountains. Views to the Hamasha gorge. 

Luvhondo: this is the big guy for groups of 16-28 sharing. Close to the cliffs with endless views. Ideal for workshops, family gatherings and celebrations. 16 people in twin beds or 28 people in bunk beds. 3 large rondavels, divided into 2, each able to sleep 2 to 4 people. 2 outside bathrooms with showers & toilets. A 4th rondavel divided into two has en-suite facilities, shower & toilet & sleeps 2 in each room. Large kitchen, lounge and veranda. Outdoor boma. Braai. Wireless internet.
