Day 4 and 5 - Leokwe Camp

Come and share memorable moments in the Lush Limpopo river valley, sipping sundowners at the confluence of the celebrated Limpopo and Shashe Rivers, where three countries unite in the renowned Mapungubwe National Park. Gaze at eagles soaring over African skies, heed the echo of elephant trumpets, embark on a tree top hike or simply relax, unwind and soak in the superb surroundings. Found in a spectacular flourishing sandstone flanked valley and set amongst mopane scrub and mixed woodland, is Mapungubwe Park's main rest camp, Leokwe Camp. Located in the eastern section of the Park, this historical self catering camp has a rich cultural atmosphere with a typical Vendan Village design.

The bird life is abundant and the confluence of two great rivers has a lookout with a number of observation decks which provide impressive views across the rivers below and give a birds-eye view of this delightful area.. indeed the whole neighborhood with its rocky valleys and craggy outcrops scattered with large Baobab and riverine forest trees give the impression of being a raptor paradise. The boardwalk which goes to the hide surveying the river is a wonderful place to have a picnic and do some riverine woodland birding.

Day 6 and 7 - Pafuri Camp

Pafuri Camp lies in the wildest and most remote part of the famous Kruger National Park. It is home to a large variety of vegetation, offers fabulous game viewing and provides the best birding opportunities in the Kruger National Park. This region also boasts a wealth of folklore from early explorers and ancient civilisations. Pafuri Camp is well known for its fever tree forests, beautiful gorges and Crooks' Corner - where the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers as well as three countries (Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique) meet.

Pafuri Camp is situated between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers in the northern sector of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. This 24,000 hectare area is recognised as one of the most diverse and scenically attractive areas in the Kruger National Park and is called either the Pafuri triangle or the Makuleke Concession- as it is the ancestral home of the Makuleke people.

Pafuri Camp provides access to what is considered to be one of Kruger's biodiversity hotspots: home to some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as leopard and lion, and incredibly prolific bird life. In May 2007, the biological significance of the area was recognised when it was declared as a Ramsar Site - a wetland of international importance.

Its prime location on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve ensures that it is one of the only safari camps which can provide guests with an authentic, year round Okavango Delta land and water safari experience. The owner, Mr Wolfgang Burre, is one of the founding fathers of Botswana's photographic safaris. Together with the staff of Xakanaxa Camp he has endeavoured to maintain the classic safari charm that makes any journey to Xakanaxa a memorable one. As one of the very first lodges to be established in the Okavango Delta, this small and personal safari camp is still one of the Okavango favourites; due to its superb location, fantastic game viewing, friendly service and authentic safari style.

Big game, big birds, big water – Xakanaxa Camp, one of the Okavango Delta's most authentic safari camps. The Moremi Reserve is rated as one of Africa’s finest game-viewing areas, offering sanctuary to abundant herds of elephant, sable, giraffe, tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala and waterbuck.
