From start to finish this was a truly super break. The ranger and tracker were amazing, as were all of the other staff. We were lucky enough to see the big 5. There were never more than 6 people in any vehicle on the safari's. Food was plentiful if sometimes not hot enough. A really wonderful trip.

Stayed 3days and had 6 game reserves outings. Saw all of the big five with the exception of the leopard. Animals were up very close and felt safe. Nice touch to have a stop halfway through a 3 hour safari for a coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. Staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating.

We have just come back from the most incredible stay at Kapama Southern Camp. From start to finish, everything was meticulously planned so you arrived and everything was set out for you. We spent 3 full days there, with two half days either side (due to the time we arrived and left). Transfers to and from Hoedspirit airport are complimentary.... More

We stayed in the Southern Camp for three nights and took five game drives. Saw and got good photos of the Big Five. Went to the endangered species center (lots of cheetah!), the elephant interaction, and the spa. Great resort with friendly knowledgeable staff. A fabulous end to 3 weeks in Southern Africa.

We stayed at Kapama Southern Camp for about 4 days and it did not disappoint from the moment we touched down! Our guide was at the airport (Hoedspruit) to collect us. You go straight across the street and into the Kapama Private Game Reserve. There are several lodges within the reserve, but they are very organized with keeping the safari... More

We enjoyed Kapama Southern Camp. Accomodation was excellent. Wish we'd spent more time just enjoying the Camp from our porch and the grounds. All staff especially our dining area server were cheerful, pleasant and very accommodating. Excellent food and plenty of it. Our first African safari experiences were great. Doomie our guide and Advice our tracker were excellent resources. They... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kapama Southern Camp is the proud new addition to our Kapama Game Reserve family and is situated on the southern most section of the Kapama Private Game Reserve. It offers luxury safari accommodation, warm hospitality and friendly service in a tranquil setting which will satisfy even the most discerning nature lovers' taste. Relax in the lounge with a good book or just sit back and indulge in the breathtaking beauty of mother nature in all her splendour. Alternatively you can lazily lounge around our magnificent pool and deck area and stare into the vast African yonder, hopefully spotting some of the many animals that often pass in close proximity. If the African sun becomes too much to endure, a dip in the refreshing swimming pool will bring immediate relief, and the friendly barman will be on hand to spoil you with a tantalising cocktail.DiningBreakfast and lunches are normally served in the dining room with open sides, so you will always have nature just a few meters away while enjoying tasteful culinary creations from our qualified chefs . Dinner is served in the traditional outside Boma, again with nature as the backdrop and a starlit sky overhead creating the perfect setting.Southern Camp also boasts a fully equipped wine cellar where we stock only the finest wines from top South African vineyards in a perfectly humidified environment. All 15 standard suites at Southern Camp have full en-suite bathrooms with picture windows to enjoy the surrounding scenery and birdlife. Air conditioning, minibars and tea and coffee stations are standard in all suites of this five-star safari accommodation. Private patios offer the opportunity to enjoy relaxing sundowners, while game watching at the same time. Kapama Southern Camp also has 7 luxury suites. These 95 ㎡ luxury suites have their own private lap pool, inside and outside showers, large minibar, espresso machine and a romantic fireplace open to the bath and bedroom. Southern Camp offers 3 luxury Family Suites each with a lap pool and a separate connected bedroom for children with its own bath, shower, double vanity and outside patio. ... more   less
