About Us

With a passion for wilderness and conservation, art and culture, wellbeing and transformative travel as well as the upliftment of local communities, Leshiba is an out of the ordinary wildlife mountain sanctuary.

Leshiba is Malaria free, part of the UNESCO Vhembe Biosphere Reserve and certified by Fair Trade in Tourism in South Africa.  We are a protected wildlife sanctuary offering a variety of wildlife including leopard, giraffe, zebra, a variety of antelope and extensive bird species. We have been featured in Africa’s Finest by David Bristow & Colin Bell as well as on the cover of Getaway Magazine.
