We stayed 4 days at Kapama and had a blast. We had a luxury suite, which was amazingly comfortable and we enjoyed the private pool for the really hot days. The whole camp was relaxing and we enjoyed the spa. The trip comes with 2 safaris - early morning and evening. It's a private gated game reserve, but saw heaps...

We were guests at Kapama Southern Camp between 3-6 Oct 16, celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we arrived at the airport and were met by Alistair (who ended up being our ranger for the duration of our stay) we knew we had made the right choice for our first trip to a game reserve. We were fortunate...

Well, this is the first time that I'm not sure how to rate Kapama as there are 1 to 5 stars to judge but finally decided that the overall experience was just average... First of all I have to underline that I am not the right person for this kind of Holidays. May be my expectations been wrong, but sitting...

Kapama is amazing, it is located in the middle of the jungle but with 5 start luxury. The lodge is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and luxurious. The food is great as well. You have game drives everyday in the morning and in the afternoon. Francois, our ranger, Obbrey, our tracker, and Innocence our server were awesome! It was a...

We saved here for four nights at the Southern Camp and it is faultless. The accommodation was excellent, the public facilities really comfortable and architecturally beautiful and the food plentiful with lots of variety. The safari experience with our tracker, Carlos and guide, Mike was the highlight. We went out every day for the sunrise safari and evening safari and...

My friend and i spent 3 days in the camp. We were welcomed by one of the Rangers waiting at the airport to take us to the camp - on arrival at the camp a lovely cold towel and a pleasant welcome was extended. We were taken to the bar where we had a soft drink and rooms explained, before...

This was the second leg of our 15 day trip to South Africa. It was the perfect break between Jozi and Cape Town. The resort staff was helpful and attended to all of our needs. We were able to see the Big 5 which started with a leopard sighting on our drive from the airport to the lodge. The resort...

We stayed in a "luxury suite" which was nice. The rooms are modern and newer. The suites come with their own plunge pool which is a nice touch. However, having just come from another comparable lodge, we were disappointed in the overall experience. They stack 9 people in the truck for the safari drive which is not standard with the...

We had a wonderful stay. Perfect in every way. The lodge common areas and our room were beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Three Nyala, including a baby, were just outside our door most of the time. Mike, our ranger/guide, was very well informed about all of the plants and animals, including the beautiful birds, and even the insects! I loved...

From the moment you arrive you are greeted by your ranger and tracker. They make sure that you settle in and stay with you for the duration of your stay. This allows you to see the things that you want and are given all the information about the game & environment in which they live. This is more than a...

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
