Most unique experience I ever had, Alex and his partner (game ranger) very helpful and took pain to show us all the animals. Would visit again with my children and grand children. Although have been on holidays around the world, but this certainly was a unique experience

This safari camp, which is located very near Hoedspruit airport, did everything right! Our twice-daily game drives (guided by Allister with Carlos as the tracker) were perfectly done in a comfortable vehicle----we saw unbelievable African animal settings. The food is wonderful. My wife had a birthday and the dining room staff brought her a cake and sang African songs for...

The hotel is great! It is new and since there aren´t many rooms, the service is personal and excellent. The food is amazing, including deserts. We enjoyed the game drives, even having to wake up at at 5am. The overall stay was great!!

We stayed for 2 nights in a luxury pool suite and had a great time. All the staff, guides, trackers, restaurant and reception, were very friendly and helpful. We saw some fantastic animals although not the leopard and I get the impression that the chance of seeing one at this reserve is low compared to other neighbouring reserves. We learnt...

They are very modern and very well equipped with all amenities you never thought you'd get in the middle of an African jungle. Their trackers and tour guides were super knowledgeable about the animals. They know the jungle like the back of their hands and track the animals by their footprints.

Having never been on a safari this took a lot of research and Kapama Southern Camp surpassed everything we had hoped for. We stayed for 3 nights. The staff were all brilliant, but we couldn't have been matched with a better ranger- Reynard. He was knowledgeable and a great person to spend so much time with. He made our safari...

We recently stayed at Kapama Southern Camp for 3 nights and it was a fantastic stay. We landed into Hoedspruit Airport and were greeted by the representative who transported us to the camp. The grounds are located directly across the road from the airport. Having checked in and settled down, we had our first game ride at 4:30pm and it...

WOW! This was our first experience of travel in Africa and it did not disappoint! First game was spotted before the plane even reached the terminal and it did not stop from then on. We saw the Big 5 on our first game drive. Winners! The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and plentiful, the rooms are spotless and...

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
