We recently stayed at BLC as part of a safari trip to South Africa ( with On Track Safaris - also brilliant!). The camp is situated in rugged isolation but within a truly majestic landscape. From the moment you arrive at the 'camp' you become one of the family and owners Alan and Lynsey and the team could not have...

The camp is situated within a majestic band of mountains, so wherever you are the scenery is breathtaking. The tents are spacious as are the beds with deep, deep mattresses ensuring a cosy night’s sleep; loo and shower are ensuite.

Just an amazing experience. It's like walking in the garden of Eden. Once in a while it happens when traveling; There's this special 'click' between people. You don't know what it is but it is there and it's real. Here we had such a click. We were fortunate to have met with the wonderful people of BLC. Rou, Alan, T,...

We stayed at Black Leopard for 4 nights as part of a trip with On Track Safaris and had a wonderful time. The camp comprises a clutch of luxury tents deep in the Thabo Tholo reserve, with beautiful mountain views and the sound of the river which supplies delicious spring water to the camp. Each tent has a deck from...

The facilities are of excellent standard and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. It was great to experience the quiet of the bush and be spoilt by the staff.

Luxurious tents, comfortable beds, great food and super hosts and guides! After the nice drive on the open landrover you enter something you do not expect to find that deep in the bush. There are various tents on the premises, all nicely tucked away in the bush. All tents have an outside bathroom: shower and bath in the open air:...
