Leopard Creek next to the Kruger Park is one of the top golf courses in the country.
Leopard Creek Golf Course rests its bent grass greens and kikuyu fairways on the doorstep of wild Africa, separated from the world-renowned Kruger National Park wilderness reserve by the gurgling Crocodile River. Leopard Creek is popular among passionate golfers and nature lovers alike, with frequent sightings of buffalo, hippo, crocodile and an assortment of antelope from points of play. Fortunate guests may even sight elephants sating their thirst in the river below.
Designed by Gary Player and Johann Rupert, the parklands-style Leopard Creek Golf Course boasts a world-class feel in the midst of untamed grasslands and thorny acacias. Extensive water features and bunkers serve to challenge every level of golfer. The 505 meter par-five 13th is truly spectacular, as the green rests on the edge of the Crocodile River 32 meters above water level – essentially a breathtaking window into the park.
Visitors are urged to enhance their golf experience with a safari in the Kruger Park – only a bridge drive across the river. Kruger is the finest location in the world to enjoy a golfing safari, blending the world-class greens of the course next door with the untouched magic of the South African bushveld. This incredible wild corner of South Africa is truly what safari dreams are made of, and complementing it with an exclusive golfing experience Leopard Creek will make it the getaway of a lifetime.
