I had to take a week off when I was 7 weeks pregnant because I had such bad nausea, so after day 3 I phoned my Manager to let her know why I was sick. I didn't have to but I have a great relationship with her, and I would have told her if I had miscarried so I was fine with it.
In your case, I'd either tell my manager before they went on leave and ask them not to tell anyone before you get to "announce" it.

I intend to keep it to myself as long as I possibly can. I really don't like most of my work colleagues & just don't want to share it with them. There's no maternity leave so I don't need to organise that.

How about sending her an email while she is on leave then if she checks her emails on leave thats up to her. Then if someone tells her verbally u can say that u did write to her before telling everyone else and that you didn't want to disturb her leave.
I wouldnt phone her during her leave.. she may not appreciate that..

Obviously my work place is much more relaxed!! I text my boss regularly and our fac tilt often does to his place for bbqs. I guess it really depends on your workplace - it wouldn't be weird at all for me to give a quick call to let him know.

How long is she away for - I'm assuming at least a few weeks?
I told my boss verbally when I was 9 weeks along.
I think it is good form to tell her before she hears it through others, so if that involves giving her a call while she's away then I think that's fine.
