My husband and I stayed one night at Southern Camp and two nights at Buffalo Camp. The entire experience at Kapama was above and beyond our expectations. Excellent food, beautiful rooms, and incredible service. From the moment we got off the plane, Kapama took care of everything—from the transfer to our camp to coordinating activities. Between the two camps, we... More

This place is just amazing! You get to see what you came for and you will stay in a room which you will love and never leave again. Food is great, especially breakfast. Staff is very friendly and takes care of everything. We only stayed for two nights but they even noticed what kind of coffee we liked, so they... More

We visited Kapama Buffalo Lodge for 3 nights November 2015, I cannot say enough good things about this game lodge. We loved our accommodations, the food was awesome. Ranger Joe and Tracker Foster really made our trip, the game rides only got more exciting with each passing ride. We saw the "Big Five" and so much more, it is obvious... More

I decided to head to South Africa by myself for an African Safari. My first stop was a two night stay at Kapama Buffalo Camp. I should never have started here as it set the safari expectations very high. They did an amazing job with everything. The food was like a five star restaurant. The staff was very nice and... More

Food was extremely good and it seemed that it was always available, so called... More

Spent 3 nights here as part of 5 nights at Kapama. From the very start the experience was excellent. We were met at the airport by our ranger, Joe, and were pleasantly surprised to pull out of the airport property and see the Kapama gates literally across the road. On the short (maybe 20-25 minute) drive to Buffalo Camp we... More

Stayed at Kapama Buffalo Camp from 10/13-10/16 as the first stop on an incredible S. African honeymoon. The best way to describe this place is intimate. It's quiet, there are only about 10 tents I believe and the staff gets to know you very well. This place is a luxury lodge with mid level pricing. We loved everything from the... More

We travelled in late Oct.for 3 days. We were meet at the airport by Jeffery our guide. As we quickly entered Kapama Reserve giraffes and zebras meet us on the ride to the camp. Jeffrey and Douglas made our game drives finding the big 5 and many others. Everyday became better than the one before. Food and service were excellent... More

We spent 3 nights at the Buffalo Camp at Kapama Game Reserve. It far exceeded our expections. Each game drive out did the one before. Jeffrey our ranger was so knowledgeable about the animals and plant life and even the stars in the sky. The food and wait staff where so courteous and the food was superb and plentiful. We... More
