Leopard Hills/Ndumo/Rocktail?

Does anyone have any report or advice regarding Leopard Hills Lodge in Sabi Sands, Ndumo or Rocktail Bay in KwazuluNatal? We are looking into staying there this year with our families (all adults) and I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on any of these places. Thanks in advance.

When are you going? - all three are hot in summer.
1) For wildlife, without doubt Sabi Sands will give the broadest experience.
2) Rocktail (presumably the Wilderness Safari's tented camp) will not get anywhere near to 1) for variety, but does have the advantage of being very close to the coast. It is also within striking distance of Mkuze (a great park), Hluhluwe, and Kosi Bay. If you don't mind the relatively poor roads, are a scuba diver (summer!) and want a variety of reserves then this is OK.
3) Ndumo - this is a small fairly isolated park. Tembe elephant reserve is adjacent. Mkuze is about 1 hour away. If its summer and you are an avid bird-watcher then this is definitely the one!

All in all, if you don't want excessive driving, would like to spend your time inside the game reserve, and want to see as much of Africa's wildlife as possible, the go for Sabi Sands.

Have fun,

Have stayed at Leopard hills. Lodge is beautiful. Food good but not great. They really earned there name as there are several resident leopards. Have been to the Sabi Sand 8 times. The game viewing is excellent. There is another camp you might enjoy. Savannah Tented Lodge.It is a little less formal. Tented tops on cement sides. Great interiors. Vety relaxed atmosphere. Less enpensive. However my all time favorite is Londolozi.
