At Leopard's Lair we extend a warm welcome to families and offer a relaxing, fun, child-friendly environment and a chance to meet new friends.

Our cottage is set at the heart of an active cattle, sheep and maize farm and is ideal for families to enjoy the outdoors together. The typical farmyard is a thrill for the children, with lambs and calves to feed, goats to stroke, eggs to gather and many more general farming activities to get involved in.

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, and the many different calls from the birds lining the branches of the trees.

Conveniently located between Johannesburg and Durban, only 10km off the N3, Estcourt South off-ramp, the farm is in the malaria-free KZN Midlands, renowned for its unspoilt beauty, tranquillity and hospitality.

We offer you a comfortable and homely base from which to explore the many attractions of the area, but you can of course come here and do absolutely nothing. We don't mind! There are ample opportunities for hiking, biking, birding, painting, photography and farm tracks to explore. The area is crime-free and the roads are safe. Or simply relax with the family in the beautiful, child-friendly Gardens, alive with birds. Bird life is abundant and varied, with species such as Blue Crane breeding on the farm.

Our thatched, self-catering, cottage is spacious and sleeps 6. It is clean, cosy and warm with the added attraction of an open fire and a private lapa.

Round off the day with a braai, as the sun sets over the picturesque Lowlands valley. Just imagine the peace and tranquillity, with a log fire and a night full of stars...

We have enjoyed having visitors from all over the world, and look forward to meeting you at Leopard's Lair.

Lovely farm atmosphere, warm hospitality from kind hosts. Thatch cottage has all you need. Beautiful quiet surrounding near N3. We would gladly recommend Leopards Lair for a overnight stay.

Excellent, Words cannot explain how much joy it brought to my heart to see my son run after sheep and chase chickens. Never once did we fear for our safety, or his while at Leopards Lair. A single 3 day trip allowed him to gain such confidence in himself..and us in him.....that we suddenly miss the little boy that started off with us. The hospitality of Michelle and family is refreshing, and her 2 boys are so lucky to grow up so carefree.

Michelle and Bernard could not have been more pleasant. They were so willing to go the extra mile for us. We had a lovely time and hope to visit Leopard's Lair again.
