This was my first trip to South Africa and on safari. Stayed at the Southern Lodge for 4 nights and can't compliment the venue and staff higher. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for us. A special shout out must go to the head chef (every single dish I had was immense and... More

I recently visited Kapama with a group of over 40 people. The staff at kapama led by Eugene were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and they made the groups stay memorable and the trip of a lifetime. The lodges in Kapama are beautiful and spotlessly clean, well furnished and huge. With great touches like the outdoor shower, plunge pool... More

Transfer was waiting for us when we landed who turned out to be our guide for our stay (Dennis). As soon as we got into the reserve, the giraffes were there to welcome us When we arrived at... More

Worth every cent. One of our best breakaways. Get a luxury suite, its really worth it. The game drives was awesome. Our ranger, Doctor made a great effort to find and track game. We even spotted a leopard. Cuisine is world class. I will certainly be back.

Spent two nights here after the Kapama River Lodge on a honeymoon. The room itself was a little more sparse than the River Lodge, but we liked that it directly opened itself into the wilderness. Similarly, the restaurant was smaller but the setting spectacular. Our guide, Garry, was terrific, very informative and ensured all were well taken care of.

Free WiFi. Coffee and tea was served before leaving for safari, coffee and tea break midway through the safari, then breakfast when you... More

The best ever. Excelent service, beautiful hotel. Everything is so perfect, that I was wondering if Disney can do better. All employees are extremely kind and professional. Even if I wanted, I can not negatively criticize anything at the hotel.

We had a wonderful time during our stay here, it was especially great due to our guide Doctor who was both great fun and very knowledgeable. We stayed 4 nights which was just enough really - we saw just about every animal possible and ate enough for an army! The food was excellent and mosquitos were just nonexistent which was... More
