The Observatory – designed by award-winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens – is a masterpiece, ideal for couples or for families. This remarkable house is state of the art, with breath taking views and the ultimate in luxury. Serviced by a butler, maid and chef, it also has a heated infinity pool and jacuzzi on the roof. There is an automated Observatory that is perfect for stargazing. The Observatory is booked on an exclusivity basis only. It can accommodate a maximum of 9 people (6 adults and 3 children).


Leobo, which is the name for chameleon in Northern Sotho is a fitting name for this reserve. Just like this enchanting creature, guests can change their day at the drop of a hat, pretty much do whatever they want and be accommodated by the most obliging staff!
