Hi everyone

"Meandering Mouse" asked me to add her post of Leokwe here on the accommodation thread. ENJOY :dance:


Meandering Mouse wrote:I have been twice to Leokwe, both times in a one bedroomed cottage capable of sleeping 4. The first time I stayed was with my elderly mother, so we were in a cottage suitable for the disabled. I think it was number 2. The second time I stayed, we stayed in cottage number 6.

I did walk through the camps looking to see if there were any cottages that had no view. As far as I could see, there was only one that seemed to look over another cottage. Sadly, I cannot remember exactly which number it was, but I think that it might have been number 4.

The lower number, number 1 and 2 have the least privacy. This is mainly due to its position close to the pool area. I would definately choose one of the highest numbers which are situated against the cliff area and the futhest away from the common area.

Having said that, Leokwe is a camp that invites solitude. The units are designed to take in the beauty.

The pool area. Lovely first thing in the morning.

The patio from unit 2.

The bedroom.

This was taken from the pool area. I was hoping that I would have a picture taking in the whole camp. Sadly not. The units I would recommend would be those nesstled against the "cliffs". They would be the higher numbers.

And finally - herewith the map of Leokwe Camp - this should give you some idea of the layout.

Hi w1tw0lf

Thanks for you photo's. Wow they look very nice and spacious. Does every tent have his own braai area? It looks so nice.
