For a truly memorable holiday experience, Kapama River Lodge is definitely the place to seek out. The lodge is beautifully decorated. The pool has an incredible view of the South African bushveld. The food is amazing - we could not stop eating. The rooms have wonderful views and everything is super comfortable and luxurious. The staff are all wonderfully friendly... More

The Kapama River Lodge offers the best of both worlds, and provides luxurious yet environmentally compatible accommodations, while also delivering a wonderful safari experience in a private reserve. If you are looking for a great safari while still enjoying full amenities after each drive, this lodge is ideal. The rooms are fully equipped with everything you would expect from a... More

We had the most fantastic experience at Kapama River Lodge. We arrived tired and frustrated since we were over 24h late due to delayed flights from London, but as soon as we got to Kapama these feelings disappeared. The best service you can ever imagine. You get your own Ranger and your own Tracker. We were so happy with ours.... More

This is a superb and tranquil place to stay, with excellent surroundings and professional and friendly staff. The rooms are a delight and the food superb. The knowledgeable rangers make your game drives very special, and they go out of their way to please.

Staying at Kapama River Lodge was the most amazing experience. Up at 5.00am each morning to begin our adventure with our fabulous Ranger Harry and great Tracker, Stanley who ensured, by our 4th night, that we had not only seen the Big 5 but several of the Small 5 and that we could distinguish animal tracks and droppings such was...

We recently stayed for 1 night at Kapama River Lodge. We were welcomed on arrival by a friendly hostess which lead us to the reception for check in. The lodge is big with more than 40 rooms. For us it felt more like a hotel than a lodge. The rooms are beautiful with all the amenities needed. By far the... More

Staying at this wonderful resort was one of the highlights of our trip in South Africa. We simply enjoyed everything and the only down side was that we couldn't stay longer. The room was perfect, the food was perfect, the service was perferct and all the surroundings were....perfect. As an extra bonus, we were also fortunate to take two safaris... More

We stayed at Kapama River Lodge for four nights last month, and it is the most incredible travel experience we have had. We saw a pair of leopards on our first game drive and spotted giraffes and zebras simply driving to the lodge from the airport. We saw all of the Big 5 by our second day thanks to the... More

Everything was wonderful about this game reserve. In particular, we were blessed to have two wonderful guides - Freedom and Coleen - and two fantastic trackers - Ringo and Colin. They were all so professional and so good at their jobs; a BIG thank you to them.

I cannot say enough great things about Kapama River Lodge. From the inclusive warm welcome airport transfer by our guide, Kevin, to the incredible meals where we were lovingly attended by Joel, to the educational, often funny, conversations with assistant manager, Thomas, to the amazing eyesite of our tracker, Michael, and endless patience of Kevin to our relentless questions, and...
