Staff is excellent and very kind. Mildred is a very kind and sweet young woman who served us during lunch and dinner. She recognised us from last year. Last year we... More

We arrived at Kapama and was greeted by a lovely young lady named Hannah. She showed us around and then took us to our room. We just could not believe how large our room was and such a wonderful view. As soon as we walked in we saw three giraffes. In the afternoon we met our ranger Chane and spotter... More

I went to southern camp and the place is lovely. The food was good as was the safari experience. Unfortunately, however, we were unable to see cheetas, male lions, leopards or elephants.

Very high standard of hospitability and very good game drives. Super rangers and trekkers. Truly a 5 star expierience. Ask for Ranger Janri at your reservation. The Southern camp is calm and very new and modern. Animals are everywhere around

We landed at Hoedspruit AP which is 20 minutes from the camp, All the welcoming at the airport and at the lodge was great. We took the nice rooms which are an experience by itself regardless of the safari (Room #8). The team is very warm and welcoming, Safari team is professional, both the guide and the spotter . We...

Kapama was the last destination in our Honeymoon. We spent here 3 nights. My husband and I loved staying in the luxury suite at the southern camp. The experience was incredible, great service and food. The game drives were awesome - we saw a tiger hunt and kill an impala. It was crazy. The animals are so close. Our guides... More
