Leobo Private Reserve is a completely private 20,000 acre estate based in the beautiful Waterberg mountains, home to the award winning ‘Observatory Bush Villa’. Owned by an English family as their private home and only recently available on a limited commercial basis, the reserve is rented on an exclusive basis only. You don’t share it with any other guests; it’s your playground for the duration of your stay.
There's no timetabled game drives, rigid programs or meals at set times. You can go on game drives whenever you like, day or night – whenever suits you, give you the opportunity to enjoy a life experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come. You don’t need to be mad or crazy or an adrenalin junkie. Just an individual, a couple, or a bunch of friends who truly believe in enjoying themselves.
3 hours drive north of Johannesburg, surrounded by the diverse Waterberg region and overlooking the Palala Valley, the 8,000 hectare (20,000 acre) reserve is encompassed by rugged rocks, mountainous areas, bushveld savannah, rivers, gorges and an abundance of wildlife.
