Take N1 north and turn off at the Hammanskraal off ramp. Trun right at the top of the intersection going back over the bridge. Continue on the tar road through Kekakana Gardens to Tau Gate. After entering Tau gate, continue on the tar road for approximately 6km until you see the sign for Leadwood Safari Camp and turn right onto the gravel road (Kaallaagte Road). Continue on the gravel road for 1.8km until you see the next sign and turn right again. From here just follow the road until you see the large Leadwood sign above the road and turn into camp driving underneath this sign. Only use GPS to get to the Tau gate. Once in the game reserve do not use the GPS as this will take you off the road onto the self-drive route which causes most people to get lost. Just follow the above directions and signs into camp.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should we bring?

The camp is well equipped, however we do advise guests to consider brining along the following items: torches, mosquito repellent and umbrellas. Guests are also advised to follow weather forecasts to ensure they pack accordingly. We also advise that guests pack at least 1 set of warm clothing, even during the summer months.

What is included in the kitchen?

The kitchen includes all the basic equipment required to prepare and enjoy meals. Equipment includes: a gas stove, regular braai, fridge/freezer, kettle and French press. As an eco camp, power is limited therefore we don’t use or allow any major appliances at the kitchen.

What are your game drive times?

Game drives are scheduled for early mornings and late afternoons in order to maximise the game viewing opportunities. Summer morning departure time is 5:30am and summer afternoon departure time is 4:30pm. Winter times are 6:30am and 3pm respectively. Spring and autumn times are 6am and 4pm respectively.

What game will we see?

Unfortunately we can never guarantee the animal sightings guest will experience. We do our best to schedule game drives for the optimal times to see game, but in nature there are no guarantees.

Are children allowed on game drives and how does it work?

No children under the age of 3 are permitted on shared game drives. Guests with younger children are welcome to go on game drives if they are the only guests making use of a particular game drive slot.

A minimum of 2 people are required in order for a game drive to depart. Alternatively, 1 person is welcome to go on a game drive however they will be charged for 2 seats (R700).

Please note that children are to be accompanied by at least 1 parent/guardian.

Will we be safe from animals?

Both our camps are surrounded by electrified fences which are designed to keep out the Big 5 and other larger mammals. Smaller animals such as snakes, scorpions and spiders cannot be kept out of the camp. Our staff are also on site at all times to assist with any emergencies.

Can we go for runs or bike rides?

We are situated in a Big 5 reserve and guests are not permitted to walk, jog or ride bicycles outside the fenced off area. The camp is also not large enough to provide adequate training opportunities. Children are permitted to bring along their bicycles for group bookings only. For those who are not able to take a break from their training routines, a day trip to Alemga (10 minute drive from our camp, just outside the boundaries of The Dinokeng Game Reserve) has facilities for runners and cyclists.

What activities do you offer?

Game drives are out main in house activity. We can also arrange guided walks, spa treatments and yoga on request. Please make contact with us for more details.

Are the tents cold in winter?

It does get cold in Dinokeng Game Reserve in winter, however, our tents are excellent at keeping out the rain and wind. Furthermore, additional blankets and hot water bottles are provided. Each tent is also equipped with a wood burning fireplace during the winter which warms the tents up significantly. With all the additional blankets, hot water bottles and the fire places, the tents are relatively cosy. Also bear in mind that we do have hot tubs, which are amazing during winter.

Do you have a restaurant?

Our accommodation is a fully self-catered. However we can refer guests to Golden Impala’s Resort should you choose to dine out. Bookings are essentials as this restaurant does not allow walk-in diners. Menu can be found here.
