Jackalberry and leadwood trees lend their shade to just four spacious suites at &Beyond Leadwood Lodge, situated on a wooded bank of the Sand River. The suites are discretely distanced from each other to offer solitude and privacy. The lodge is a tactile blend of boldly expressed and contrasted materials – crushed stone, raw cement, dark meranti, rough granite and glass. Soft furnishings provide an inviting counterpoint to the textures and patinas of the structure. Each suite has a fireplace, sitting room and private pool, surrounded by a wooden deck. The ensuite bathrooms are spacious, with both indoor and outdoor showers. The elevated dining and sitting areas boast dramatic views out over the confluence of the Sand and Mabrak Rivers. The clever use of steps and levels creates intimate spaces for quiet game viewing or unwinding with a good book.
Dinner is served in enchanting settings, adding romance to magical African evenings. Meals are shared on an open deck tucked beneath the boughs of a jackalberry tree or around a roaring fire in the open-air boma. Due to its intimate scale of just eight guests, &Beyond Leadwood Lodge is the perfect choice for a family or group of friends sharing a safari together.
