About Leopard's Lair

The thing that is always amazing about being on a farm is the sound of silence. You realise something is different the constant hum of city life is gone and the peace and quiet is something you can really feel. That’s when you notice other, more calming sounds the hens and their little chicks cheep-cheeping around the garden, the goats and sheep, the guinea pigs, and the many different calls from the birds lining the branches of the trees.Sample a true taste of country life, join in feeding the animals with the children, walk hand-in-hand through the fields, watch the wildlife, learn about real people’s lives on a working farm.Our thatched, self-catering, cottage is spacious and sleeps seven. It is clean, cosy and warm with the added attraction of an open fire and a private lapa. There is plenty to see and do on the farm.We offer you a comfortable and homely base with many attractions a short drive away, but you can of course come here and do absolutely nothing. We don’t mind. Just imagine the peace and tranquility, with a log fire and a night full of stars.

Its a nice little place ....with a real farm feel with lots of animals all around you ..from a not so friendly crow to ducks running around outside, feeding the little lambs with a bottle and the howling of jackal at night . We felt welcome. Not so much overnight stop but definitly a little place to consider if you always wanted to know how it feels to stay on a farm ...our hosts were very welcoming and ensured a wonderful stay coffee in the cupboards, fresh farm milk in the fridge and a wood fire to keep the cold out ....we will definitly go back....

We were grateful for our stay at Leopard's Lair which was a stopping off point on an otherwise very long journey. The accomodation was comfortable and on the whole very well equipped. It's main advantage was being able to accommodate a larger party. Our host Michelle was on hand to sort out a problem with the DSTV and provide us with extra towels. My one disappointment was that whilst the kitchen had a lot of crockery it was missing a few basic essential items like a pair of scissors and a saucepan! I wouldn't have wanted to stay there for a long time as it is in the middle of nowhere and with...
