Like the beautiful and serene butterfly, the Leopards Lair Lodge butterfly tour seeks to introduce visitors to the lush and peaceful Midlands countryside and Drakensberg foothills. Our tours are led by a local guide who is keen to share his extensive knowledge about local rarities like the Midlands Widow, Estcourt Blue, The King Blue and the Mooi River Opal which are endemic and only found within a few km radius. We also talk about our local communities, its people, and traditions. Visitors will have the opportunity to encounter and experience farm life at a comfortable pace, away from the usual tourist hotspots.
