Located in the northern part of South Africa where the country meets with Botswana and Zimbabwe. Mapungubwe National Park is rich in history as it is in wildlife and flora, and is filled with numerous patches of land that poses traces of ancient civilizations and artefacts. Mapungubwe serves both as National Park declared in 2004, and a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO in 2003.

The Leokwe Rest Camp is Mapungubwe National Park’s main camp, located in the eastern section of the Park, 11 km from the Main Gate, in the spectacular sandstone hills, mixed woodland and baobab trees.

Guests can relax in comfortable 2- and 4-bed family cottages, complete with air-conditioning and open-plan kitchen and living areas. The kitchens consist of a fridge, microwave and hotplate while all the required cutlery and crockery are provided.

The Leokwe camp is unfenced, inviting the wild side of the environment even closer, which allows for an unforgettable experience. Visitors can also enjoy the camp’s swimming pool and revel in the African warmth on the sundeck. The central braai area will allow for socialised evenings with friends and neighbours.

Close to the camp guests can enjoy the Treetop Hide and the Limpopo and Shashe rivers Confluence Lookout Point, and a picnic area. Mapungubwe’s restaurant offers a comprehensive menu, and pre-packed dinners are available on request. Other facilities at Mapungubwe include picnic sites and a day visitor centre, Maloutswa Bird Hide, and an auditorium ideal for educational groups or small conferences and can seat up to 50 guests.

The Mapungubwe Interpretive Centre, an amazing building that won the World Building of the Year in 2009s World Architectural Awards, was constructed to house a museum with many of the artefacts uncovered from archaeological sites in the park. Information on the park's fascinating history and biology is also available at the interpretive centre with knowledgeable guides on hand to take visitors through the centre.
