Leadwood Big Game Estate is an exclusive, low-density wildlife estate offering the ultimate big game bushveld lifestyle.   Is situated on the southern side of the Hoedspruit / Origstad R527 main road and is only 7 kilometers from Hoedspruit town.


The estate is beautifully set on 984 hectares, and property owners on this magical estate also enjoy full traversing rights over the entire 5500 Rietspruit Game Reserve, thus offering an incredible +-450km of driving for exceptional game viewing opportunities and enjoyment of scenic beauty.

This prestigious estate is abundant with free-roaming big and plains game animals such as Elephant, Zebra, Lion, Hyena, Wild Dog, Wildebeest, Grey Duiker, Steenbok, Eland, Warthog, Bushbuck, Cheetah, Leopard,  Kudu, and more.   The rich diversity of Lowveld bird and raptor species is equally impressive.


Game drives and sightings are well communicated and coordinated between Leadwood property owners via 2-way radios to ensure uncrowded experiences and minimal disturbance to wildlife.  Property owners must use only game viewing vehicles in the "bushveld green" colour.  Quad bikes and any off-road motorbikes may only be used to exit or access the property as excessive noise isn't allowed.


The estate is low density with only 94 full title freehold stands of 1hectare each in size. Vacant land is selling fast with only a few developers stands still available.   The remaining developers' stands in Leadwood are priced at R 2500 000 each (incl. VAT and Traverse Rights), and transfer duty is not applicable.  Monthly levies are R2 700.00 and paid towards the maintenance of the reserve, roads,  security, etc.

A well-established Home Owners Association ensures that residents enjoy a secure, authentic, and top-quality wildlife estate lifestyle.   The estate is set up with excellent infrastructure, and top management maintains a healthy indigenous bushveld environment.   Security includes a high-level automated and 24 hours manned security gate.  The entire perimeter of the conservancy has an electrified game fence and regular mounted and foot patrols, as well as anti-poaching initiatives.

In terms of building and alterations, property owners must comply with the Architectural Guidelines and National Building Regulations to ensure the preservation of wildlife, fauna, and flora within the reserve, and to maintain an environmentally friendly aesthetic appeal.   Homestyle, design and construction in Leadwood Big Game Estate are eco-friendly and bush-contemporary with the emphasis on low maintenance and maximum adaptation to the indigenous and wildlife environment.

This exclusive estate is close to all convenient amenities in Hoedspruit, and the Hoedspruit Airport offering daily flights to and from Johannesburg and Cape Town, is only 25 minutes away.
