Peace and tranquility are a guarantee in Mapungubwe so don't worry about that - you will have to 'travel' a bit but most of it will be a gamedrive anyway!
The Limpopo Forest Tented Camp is in located in the beautiful riverine forest of the western section. It is very close to the Maloutswa game hide - which is good for gameviewing. Around the (unfenced) accomodation you can look out for elephant, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, bushbuck, impala, warthog, duiker and on the nearby plains jackal, zebra, blue wildebeest and more. It is half an hour drive from the main gate - the place to enter the eastern section of the park.
Gameviewing is this part of the western section can be very rewarding - especially is all the mud puddles from the last rain have dried up (which I don't know because I'm only goging back this afternoon). The loops in the eastern section are also rewarding and I would advise any visitor to try and see both parts of the park.
Leokwe Camp is peaceful and set against an amazing backdrop of sandstone rocks. Aircon noise depends on yourself switching the bedroom aircon on or off. The place is set up really spacious and you won't experience much noise from neighbouring chalets and definitely not from the swimming pool area. Casual sightseers can't go to Leokwe Camp. Remember - this is not Kruger. Mapungubwe always looks empty, even if it is fully booked! You won't hear any noise from tourist roads or farms.
Vhembe Trails Camp is not a better camp but can be the ultimate peaceful experience. This depend on other bookings because the huts are closer together than in the other camps and they are smaller. Inquire at reception about availability.
Basically you have to bring everything yourself - including ice and furewood/charcoal - wood is sometimes for sale but don't count on it. The fridges (plus small freezer) work fine though.
So maybe I will see you around in Mapungubwe, adrewschaf! I hope the info helps you to make up your mind!
