Welcome to Kaoxa Bush Camp

Please remember that this is a self-cater bush camp!

Enjoy the view of the Limpopo Valley as you look out at the rocks and Baobab trees.

The area (Limpopo Valley) is an ancient, arid (dry) unspoilt part of Africa.  Kaoxa Bush Camp is in the Limpopo-Shashi confluence area near the boundaries of Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The Limpopo Valley is known for its majestic Baobab trees. Kaoxa Bush Camp comprises 3 intimate cottages built with stone and thatch and 3 Safari tents, all with en-suite bathrooms. They open onto your personal deck overlooking an extraordinary vista.

Information displayed in the camp about the inhabitants of the bushveld, and remains from the Bushman culture will enrich your stay with us.

The new Mapungubwe National Park is also on our doorstep just a 10-minute drive to the main entrance.

 ”  I have visited the shelter at Kaoxa several times, and each time I am struck anew not only by the scale and beauty of the rock art it contains but also the genuinely breathtaking, almost other-worldly landscape which surrounds it. The area is so rich with historical sites yet Kaoxa stands out as something truly special, and I very much look forward to seeing it again.”  Mark   January 2018

A snippet of our reviews


  • 6th January 2019: the location is perfect with a wonderful view over the Limpopo and close to the Park. David was very kind chopping the wood for us and even cleaning the Potje!!

  27th January 2019:   Such a beautiful setting. Great staff and comfortable accommodation. The whole region is exquisite.

  • 10th January 2019 
  • 10 out of 10!
  • Beautiful scenery with very comfortable room. A fully equipped kitchen with fridges available as well. Swimming pool is lovely for cooling off. David was very friendly and always available to assist if we needed anything.
    • 3rd November 2018   The location is very special. It is very rustic and basic, but totally worth it! There is an authentic care and assistance from the staff on site. The communal kitchen has more than what you’d expect for a bush camp. Views to get lost in for days. Small touches in the room were noticed like the hangers, make up mirror and bathroom light. Thank you for a wonderful stay
  • 30th December 2017: No frills, peace and quiet in a wildlife environment.
  • Well located close to the Mapungubwe National Park. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Pool helped on an extremely hot day. Shared facilities encourage meeting people. Well equipped communal kitchen.
  • 19th September 2017 “Amazing place, must stay!”
  • This place is amazing, great location with spectacular views, very comfortable lodge with everything you need (kitchen, fridge, all the utensils available). The worst thing about our stay is that we booked it only for 2 nights!

  • Location in nature – and very close to the two entrances of the Mapungubwe N.P.      Alberton

7th April 2016“Dear Kaoxa, We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there – we will definitely be back, hopefully with the whole family 🙂 The location of the camp and consequently the view from the chalets is outstanding. The staff were very friendly, even though we were very late due to us not expecting the bad road conditions on the way (we came from Lephalale). You can possibly add a warning about this to your website or correspondence with potential customers. We also appreciated the fact that when we arrived they already had a fire going, otherwise, we probably would have eaten at midnight. Thank you and hope to see you soon!! “


 Jay Skyhawk March 2015. We had an awesome time. The camp was beautiful, loved the swimming pool (practically lived in it) the boma and kitchen were great and the staff helpful. We saw 130 bird species in 2 days. We loved your very special Rock Art. Had a lovely time and will definitely be back!

It was fantastic, what a view from the rooms. It was hot for us Joburgers. Luckily the pool saved us on many occasions! Piet du Preez , Johannesburg, March 2015
