Very nice lodge with 10 houses and 2 tents, we had family room 1 and it was great. Room is definitely 5 star including heated swimming pool. Food and drinks are top quality, and staff is very friendly and helpful. Game drives are great and their rangers are top quality. Single drawback is that there are many electricity posts going...

Stayed for 3 nights in a luxury suite. Wow - total decadence and an experience I want to repeat as soon as I can. The room was huge with a living room and a beautiful fireplace (although it was way too hot for that). The bathroom was also huge with a indoor and an outdoor shower. Standing in the shower... More

We visited for three nights in June 2014, and i wish we had stayed longer! We stayed in a Superior Suite which was beautiful, clean, and well-appointed. We had a small ant infestation by our pool the day we arrived, but the staff took care of it immediately while we were at lunch. The food was absolutely amazing. I am... More

We have just got back home after spending four days at Karula and we can't believe what we did, what we saw and what we learnt. It feels like a dream! The Safari drives were exceptional!! Our guide Colin and Tracker Collie were an exceptional team, teaching us so so much, not just about the birds and animals but about... More

Let me start by saying that this is the best hotel my wife and I have ever stayed in. The setting is beautiful, the room is very comfortable, the food is delicious and the staff is super friendly. Cliff was responsible for us during the meals and was always very attentive. And the bush drives make the days one spends... More

From the moment we arrived at the airport at Hoedspruit, everything was arranged by Kapama Karula to perfection. The staff were very friendly without being interfering. Andreis was very professional and helpful - as were all of the staff. There was not a single thing which I would say could be improved. Internet was slow but who cares when you... More

We stayed 2 nights at Kapama Karula....it was without a doubt the most luxurious resort we've ever stayed in. Everyone there, from the servers to the concierge to the rangers/trackers were wonderful. The rooms were incredible.....very, very spacious and comfortable. Our room had a beautiful deck overlooking a flowing river with monkeys playing all around, including up on our deck.... More

My husband and I stayed at Kapama Karula in July 2014, to celebrate my forthcoming 50th birthday. We were there for 2 nights/3 days, as part of a 14 day South African trip. What can I say about this wonderful paradise, other than "perfect". Nothing really needs to be addressed, upgraded or changed. Let's see, where do I begin? A)... More

Coming from Asia, we heard only about the great national parks in Krueger and always dreamed about going there. As it turns out when we started planning the trip to visit the great safari, we ended up Kapama and it made a world of difference. The facilities in our camp were brand new and in fact when we were there... More
