Initially we stayed in the luxury tented camp which was really awesome, and well equipped. Unfortunately a baboon tore his way in and caused some havoc while we were on a game drive. The park immediately set us up in Leokwe camp which was also wonderful. Incredible views, enormous baobab trees, stark landscape with incredible stone formations. I have never... More

We spent two nights at the Leokwe rest camp at the Mapungubwe Nature Reserve and were very pleasantly surprised to find that it was very well equipt - even has DSTV! Braai facilities are perfect, and we thoroughly enjoyed the birds and animals that came close to our chalet in the evenings. The outside shower was a novelty that we... More

We spent 2 days at Leokwe camp, chalet #10. Beautiful views from our nice patio. Very well appointed chalets and very large. Ac in the main room is useful during the hot time of the year (January and February). The swimming pool is set amongst natural rocks and it is very scenic. Just below the pool there is a smaller...

Mapungubwe is absolutely beautiful with breathtaking scenery. Leokwe camp is lovely and the chalets are very well appointed and modern. We saw lots of elephant but very little other game, but the scenery is so beautiful that it did not worry us. We visited the museum and loved the architecture. The only gripe I had is that it is not... More

i had a wonderful time at Mapungubwe (UNESCO decreed cultural heritage site) last month. I just did not expect such an excellent service and luxurious comfort in the middle of nowhere. I really experienced the wild life in the most natural way possible. The game drive is divine. The tranfrontier confluence viewing is stunningly memorable. The interpretative center guided tour...

This camp was great for relaxing. The small chalets have everything we needed; a nice bed, a kitchen, water, electricity. But furthermore there is nothing.. like nothing to buy (food),no reception at the camp, no network or mobile signal, that's why I say, be prepared; take enough food, water, enough fuel in your vehicle and contact people you are not...

A small intimate bush camp experience in an incredible setting. There are a small number of self catering units, each separate from the other, arranged so that the deck has a view outwards to the ring of cliffs around the camp. The natural bush is left behind, and there are no fences to spoil the interaction. The units are very... More

An outstanding find. We stayed here prior to crossing into Zimbabwe at Beitbridge The next day. The reception could not have been more helpful particularly since we'd contrived to lose all our paperwork for the holiday (including the paperwork we'd need to cross the border) at some point during the day. They let us phone our Car Hire company and... More

We had originally booked to stay at the Limpopo Forest camp but were advised that baboons were terrorising the tent occupants and having experienced the mess the baboons can make at our tent in Punda Maria we settled for Leokwe Camp. We had stayed there before and had wanted to use the different camp to see more of the reserve... More

Leokwe Camp Mapungubwe We stayed here for four nights as a family and had an absolutely wonderful time. It’s so quiet in the middle of the day that you can hear birds cracking open seeds with their bills. The accommodation is clean and spacious and well equipped – the standard cottages have two single beds and a sleeper couch. There‘s... More
