Welcome to Leeuwenbosch Country House
True country living in every sense
Three star rated Leeuwenbosch Country House in the Amakhala Game Reserve is a gracious colonial country house set amidst beautiful indigenous gardens, offering a family safari experience steeped in settler history.
Accommodation at Leeuwenbosch includes the historic Country House and the newer Shearers Lodge Suites. The Country House, built in 1908, offers five spacious en-suite bedrooms, and is layered with a collection of historical images, documents, and furniture dating back to the 1800s. Set back from the Country House, Shearers Lodge offers four more contemporary double suites, overlooking a cool low-roofed verandah and tranquil swimming pool.
Savour a quiet moment in the dim stillness of the 19th-century stone chapel. Enjoy high tea in the shade of the verandah. Sit late into the night in the convivial stone-walled cellar bar. This wonderful homestead has been in the Fowlds family for five generations, and the family takes great pleasure in sharing its remarkable Southern African family heritage with you.
The Country House ( 5 suites) on Leeuwenbosch caters for the whole family. We offer two family suites, baby sitting services and a children’s programme.
Shearer’s Lodge has been beautifully converted into four luxury en–suite rooms, all twins that can be converted into doubles and surrounded by indigenous gardens.
