What we love

  • Exclusive use of the entire 20,000 acre Reserve

  • Observatory for stargazing 

  • Heated infinity pool and jacuzzi on the roof

The Leobo Private Reserve is set in the Waterberg gamer park, surrounded by a vast 12000-acre private estate. The Waterberg Is an extremely diverse environment offering an abundance of wildlife and is rich in archaeological history. It is considered to be one of the geological wonders of the world.

Leobo Private Reserve is ideal for groups and families. The reserve is rented out on an exclusive basis only and is divided into two parts: The Observatory and The Lodge chalets.

The Observatory is a state-of-the-art four-bedroom lodge designed by award-winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. It takes its name from the 7-metre tower-shaped library, crowned with an automated rotating copper dome housing a 20-inch telescope and a solar scope.

It has liveable design with four bedrooms accommodating up to six adults and three children. Built on top of a hill facing west to capture the setting sun, it offers the perfect setting to truly relax. The bedrooms all have spectacular views and boast spacious en-suite bathrooms, open fireplaces, countless accessories and a daybed for relaxing.

The Lodge has a great African style and offers breath-taking views over the Palala Valley. It is composed of nine chalets that can comfortably sleep up to 20 adults in total. Each chalet is designed in a rustic typical safari style. They each have their own deck, and en-suite facilities.
