Everything, from the first minute you get to this place, is thought of to the last detail. From the personal approach - the place is informed by the gate that you are there and everyone is presented by name upon reception, to the culinary part to the FABULOUS room. The service is nothing less than spoiling. We were there at... More

Kapama puts an African Safari into a completely new dimension! For start, it is a short 60 min flight from Johannesburg, which is already an adventure because of the small turboprop plane that does the rout. From arrival at the small Hoedspruit airport the entire experience is just awesome and the service is first class, all around. Be prepared to... More

Kapama Private Game Reserve Southern Camp was excellent.From the moment we were greeted to the very end was marvelous. Every staff member was totally focused on service and they were all extremely friendly and helpful. Eugene runs a beautiful Camp and could not have... More

It was our first trip to South Africa and we were really excited about our Safari Experience. Our trip was arranged through Go2Africa and I have to say Kapama Southern Camp gave us the most amazing experience. We stayed there for four (4) days and by the last day we did not want to leave. The chalets and the surrounding... More

The rooms and grounds of this hotel are amazing! With the free roaming animals there is something to see at every turn. We stayed in a family suite and the room was breathtaking. The private pool was nice, but the water was too chilly to enjoy it. But it was the tail end of winter, so that is understandable. The... More

Stayed here for a night and totally loved it! There are 25 individual chalets which makes this camp private and quaint if you want private getaway. Each room has nice view facing the wild and if you're lucky you may just get a few wild animals roaming around outside your chalet. Recommend to bring a torch light with you as... More

First time at Kapama Southern Camp and first time trip to Africa. Our trip was arranged through Monograms Travel and we were upgraded to the Southern Camp (from ?? I do not know). I can say without a doubt that our upgrade was great. The facilities are very nice, perfect for a safari lodge. The rooms were clean, sized perfectly,... More

We stayed at Kapama for the second time after staying there last year in november. Southren Camp is terrific! Suites are luxurious with good beds and spacious modern bathroom. 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. Despite every other group having seen most of these. It became obvious our ranger was inexperienced and unable to find what we wanted to see. Other rangers we... More
