We stayed here on our second night at the game reserve and this place was more crowded as compared to other camp. Nevertheless they service level was maintained and I.m very impressed with the level of attention to detail each staff has for their guest. The rangers were knowledgable and our group was lucky to spot four out of Big... More

I recently went on holiday for a few days to escape Johannesburg and went to Kapama River Lodge in Hoedspruit. Not only is the hotel and resort amazing and beautiful to look at, the service by the staff is outstanding. Every single staff member is friendly and very warm. We had Ranger Andries look after us during our game drives... More

My 3rd visit to the Kruger National Park and the first visit here. My partner and I were treated extremely well during our 3 night stay; the level of service was faultless and the experiences in the wild were just amazing. Our room was perfect and we will be making another visit, as soon as we can. If you love... More

Stayed here in September, 2014. Perfect time of year to view wild life, and the bonus was there were very few mosquitoes! We really enjoyed our time spent here. The rangers were very informative and did everything they could to make our experience one to remember. We particularly appreciated their care for the animals and environment. Accommodation was very comfortable... More

We had been to Kapama River Lodge in the month of August'2014. It was an awesome experience altogether. it was 3 night stay which was just perfect for Big-5 Safari holiday. This is a private reserve very close to Hoedspruit Airport ( 20 mins away). We were received by our Ranger the Great Kalee, he is an amazing person and... More

What an amazing place. Everything you hoped it would be and more. The rooms are terrific, immaculately clean, well decorated with huge bathrooms. Free wifi, coffee service and a refrigerator. The toiletries are made in South Africa and smell amazing, they are available for sale in the gift shop for a unique souvenir. The food was good, if not often... More

What a lodge, great rooms with beautiful decorations and plenty of space around for the whole family. Great located with great view of the nature from rooms and restaurant. Great friendly staff helps you with your every need. Pricey but well worth it

We came here from buffalo camp and it was a very different experience, the river lodge was large and busy where as buffalo was small and intimate. We stayed in a family room, which I would not recommend unless you have very young children. The spa was excellent in a beautiful setting. The standard of food at dinner was very... More

My husband and I stayed at Kapama on a recommendation from a friend, and we were so glad we did. Kapama is a private reserve right next to the airport, so it's very convenient. Private reserves are better than the national parks (like Krueger) because they have less rules and the guides are able to "off road" to find the... More
