About Kaoxa Camp

Kaoxa camp nestles between two sandstone ridges, and is situated within a Natural and World Heritage Site. With deep orange Kalahari sand beneath your feet, it embodies a feeling of timelessness. Majestic baobabs that have stood for millennia, pepper the mopane bushveld. The night sky, being so pure, settles like an illuminated mantle upon the African night sounds. The dramatic and sudden return of the Botswana elephants, walking along their ancestral migration paths, worn into the flaky sandstone, is a momentous spectacle.

There are very few places left, where you can watch these spectacular animals close up, from the safety of the many koppies (hills). The mammal list is extensive, with virtually every large animal, except rhino and buffalo, having been seen on the farm. It is truly a wild piece of Africa that is a gem for any naturalist to enjoy.

Depending upon the time of the year, our bird list can swell to 350 species, with a plethora of raptors year round. Common species are Black Eagles, African Hawk Eagle, Black Breasted Snake Eagles, Peregrine and Lanner falcons, and many many more. For a little piece of unspoilt Africa, still with its Big Game intact, it is certainly a hard place to beat, at the price.


The three stone and thatch en suite cottages are poised on the edge of a rocky ridge overlooking the valley below. Each enjoys the privacy of a verandah. On the other side of the boma, dining room and kitchen are the three luxury safari tents. They too, enjoy privacy and their own verandahs. Although we are in the heart of the African bush, the camp has electricity. There is no air conditioning.

The kitchen is well equipped, and is separate from the dining room. The traditional Leadwood boma is a wonderful place to relax around the crackling mopane fire to enjoy the night sky and rhythmic calls of the barking geckos.

There is an unusual shape to the swimming pool, with a long training lane for swimming enthusiasts and a covered area under which to relax during the heat of the day. The pool is fully fenced and lockable.

This was one of six places that we stayed at during a birding trip in January 2016. Kaoxa was a magical place, stunning scenery, wildlife and starry night...
