Leshiba offers guided walks and game drives as well as adventure horse riding for experienced riders. Leshiba is a hikers paradise. There are 12 well-marked trails to explore the reserve without a guide.

Solar power, wireless internet and pure drinking water available
We are off the grid! Leshiba is an eco lodge and the property is solar powered. There is wireless internet at the IKC for anyone who needs to stay connected but limited cell phone reception. We have a number of boreholes on the property and the water at Leshiba is great for drinking.
Leshiba is situated at a high altitude where the malaria carrying mosquito cannot survive. We have had no incidence of malaria and are regarded as a malaria free destination.
