I went her with my Girlfriend on a last minute trip and we loved it and would love to return. I run my own tour company so I end up at a lot of Lodges and there was something I just loved about our stay here. Its the best Value for money luxury lodge we have stayed at together. We... More

We loved our recent trip to Kapama Buffalo Camp! I cannot recommend this place enough. From the moment we arrived to cold water and cold towels, we were treated so well by the entire staff. They were completely professional and did everything they could to make each guest feel welcome. Kapama is literally across the street from Hoedspruit Airport so... More

All I can say is Wow!! We had such an incredible time at Kapama. They really pay attention to detail, and go above and beyond to ensure you have an authentic experience. The lodging was beautiful and well maintained. The food was incredible! And their service was impeccable. My Ranger and Spotter (Joe and Foster) were a dynamic duo. They... More

We had a fantastic trip to Kapama Buffalo Camp. The staff were personable and knowledgable, the accommodations were comfortable and exotic, and the wildlife just outside our camp. Because its smaller in size, Buffalo Camp delivers a more intimate experience with less people in a safari vehicle, one on one with your guide and the chance to establish friendships and... More

Our stay at Kapama Buffalo Camp was the middle of our honeymoon (between Cape Town & Bazaruto Island in Mozambique) and quite possibly the highlight of an entirely amazing trip. The accommodations were fantastic. We stayed in the "Cheetah Tent" - which was amazing - but I'm guessing all the rooms are. Comfortable bed. Beautiful stand alone tub and a... More

I have just returned from Kapama Buffalo camp. It was one of the most incredible things that I have ever done. My fiancée and I were there for 3 days and enjoyed every moment of it. The staff and just wonderful and nothing was ever too much trouble. The camp is only small and has a very intimate feel to... More

We had a wonderful time here... Every thing was wonderful... Our ranger was great, staff so helpful and the manager went out of her way to ensure that my allergies were taken into account in our meals... The lunches were a little lacking in choice but the dinners certainly made up for that... We had stayed at the southern camp... More

Staff is very friendly and Jeffrey and Claire are outstanding. Food is too much, too often and too good (they feed you 7 times a day). This is the most luxurious “tent” I have ever seen. Everything runs smooth and hassle free. It is not very cheap, but certainly was money very well spent, anyway is much cheaper than other... More
