Kaoxa Bush Camp is a highly recommended property providing self catering in Alldays for tourists visiting the Soutpansberg region.

About Kaoxa Bush 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.

Both David and Virginia are super helpful and went to any lengths to make our stay wonderful. If you looking for a place to leave the Jo-burg hustle behind this is the place. It is tucked away in the beautiful Mapungubwe valley and views that are breath taking. The accommodation is a rustic charm. The communal kitchen has everything you need and more. David supplies wood and starts the boma fire every night, just in time to watch the African sunset. The rock art is worth seeing before they one day fade due to their age. We were fortunate to be 1 of 2 parties at Kaoxa. The other family (Ralf, Cath and James) were wonderful company. I believe the best time to see more wildlife on the farm is during the autum and winter months. The only caution, beware of the potholes between Alldays and Kaoxa, they are severe. We lost 1 tyre and damaged a 2nd (an unexpected expense). I suggest following the the road sign suggestions of 60kms at random stretches of the road.

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 skies. The accommodation is basic, but had absolutely everything that we needed, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The highlight was seeing two elephants walking just below the verandah of the dining area whilst we were having breakfast. Later in the day we saw many more elephants making their way through the bush. Not to mention the baboons, birds and lizards. I definitely want to return to Kaoxa the next time I visit South Africa.
