Went for 2 days had a wonderful time & wish we stayed longer! Beautiful lodge with amazing suites. Food & service were great. Game drives were a lot of fun. Between our first 2 game drives saw the big 5 and many more. Well worth it!

We just spent 4 days at Kapama Karula and it was amazing. The property is stunning, we had a superior suite and this would be up there with one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in. The room is one big room, with a lounge area, bathrooms, an additional outdoor shower, pool, and good view of the river and... More

As soon as we were picked up from the airport I knew we were in for a treat. The jeep was fantastic and within 5 minutes of driving we were on the game reserve. For us 5* is a treat not the norm, so we giggled like school girls on arrival - it was incredible! I've never said 'this is... More

It is hard to imagine anything more luxurious than our stay at Kapama Karula. Our family of 4 stayed in the family suite, which is as big as a house - 170 square metres! Private pool, no less than 3 showers, the world's largest bathrooms, Wii console for the kids.... It was a perfect last stage of our holiday. I... More

This was undoubtedly the best vacation experience I have ever had. Kapama Karula was everything we imagined it to be and more. We stayed in the superior suite and were blown away by how beautiful it was. We were also astounded by the wildlife we found. We spent a few days in Kruger park prior to Kapama, and Kapama clearly...

We stayed at Kapama Karula during our honeymoon for two nights in early October, 2014. Kapama Karula is a luxury game lodge located within the Kapama Private Game Reserve. We chose Kapama Karula for its luxury atmosphere, its excellent Big Five safaris, its romantic sleep-out platform, and its working relationship with Camp Jabulani's elephant-back safaris. The lodge is deep within... More

This is a trip of a lifetime. You will never get a better opportunity than this. The kruger park is amazing. You are visiting somewhere that you will not be the same. Kapama is comfortable, well maintained, and worth every penny you will spend. Compared to other vacations you could take this is by far the greatest adventure you can... More

Kapama Karula is a great hotel, with rooms that are both very comfortable and surprising, as all of the back walls are made of glass, which gives you a great sight of the woods. Food and services are excellent and staff is very nice and helpful. Safaris are excellent and very well organised. Once again, staff (as per ranger and... More

excellent service, very good food (we stay for 4 nights and didnt get bored of it), and beautiful accomodation. The safaris were very well organised, the reserve is huge so you dont always go to the same place and rarely bump into other cars. This is nice. We were max 5 in the car so you dont miss anything -... More
