Adventure into an extraordinary world

H12 Leshiba is not a destination. It’s the beginning of a journey, a new story.  Yours.  Here, you will discover not just a private yet affordable game reserve and celebrated eco-lodge that has one of South Africa’s highest biodiversity of flora and fauna with unrivalled scenery, unspoilt nature, a rich variety of wildlife and endemic species.  Here you will also discover and connect with yourself.  How that unfolds, mysteriously and uniquely, is what makes us different. We call it The Leshiba Way.

H12 Leshiba is a member of the exclusive H12 group, a global lifestyle and art hotel brand specialising in unique travel destinations offering experiences beyond the ordinary.   Find us in a hidden valley on top of the Soutpansberg mountains in the Limpopo Province.   Begin your story here.
