Leeuwenbosch Country House is an eight bed, quality game lodge, created from the gracious 1908 Settler home of the Fowlds family and steeped in the history of the South African Eastern Cape Frontier. Located within the renown Amakhala Game Reserve, and set amidst expansive gardens, Leeuwenbosch Country House offers spacious accommodation in four en-suite bedrooms furnished with antiques and historical paintings.

The accommodation and delicious cuisine is complimented by a wide range of game viewing and related outdoor pursuits and activities on the Game Reserve, all led by competent professional guides. After an early morning coffee or afternoon high tea, these informative professional guides take guests on game drives, walks and river cruises, through the scenic wilderness that is Amakhala Game Reserve, to observe the wide diversity of creatures that make this land their home. From elephants to porcupines; from rhino to lion and springbuck, all are protected with passion.

Between wildlife activities, guests can savour a quiet moment in the dim stillness of the 19th-century stone chapel; enjoy high tea in the shade of the verandah or 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 heritage.
