Wheelchair Access

Public Toilets

There are accessible public toilets at the Main Gate, at Leokwe Camp Reception and at the Confluence.


One of the Limpopo forest tents and two of the Leokwe Cottages are adapted for the mobility impaired. All these units have roll-in showers.

Hides and Lookouts

  • The Limpopo Tree Top Boardwalk and Hide is fully accessible and provides a wonderful opportunity for people with mobility difficulties to move through the treetops and look out over the Limpopo River.
  • The pathway to the confluence viewing platforms has been made from compacted earth. It is quite steep in parts and the earth has eroded in patches to create soft sand hazards, but with assistance in getting there, the viewing platforms are fully accessible.
  • The Maloutswa Hide is along a long sandy pathway. Although there is an access ramp, this hide would only classify as partially accessible as assistance will be required by most to negotiate the soft sand.
  • The park’s other hides have not been visited by the writer

Other Facilities

  • The main gate and the Leokwe Reception Complex are both ramped.
