We chose to stay 3 nights at Kapama River Lodge after a thorough research on Trip Advisor and are happy as our stay will be one of our memorable holidays. We were greeted by our ranger Rassie at the airport and accompanied by him on all 6 game drives.Rassie is very knowledgeable and experienced. He made the most to show us all of the animals on the reserve and made sure we did not skip any birds,insects and plants.We saw the big 5 and many many more through his willingness and expertise.I think on a safari the ranger on your game drive is most important and Rassie made all possible to make our experience a most enjoyable and memorable one. Thank you Rassie!
The Kapama River Lodge personnel are all very accomodating and ready to serve at all moments.Breakfast,lunch and dinners were delicious and varied. The rooms are big and housekeeping was perfect. The spa was a terrific experience as well.I had the most relaxing stone massage in my life. The lodge is very very near the Eastgate airport that also makes access to the lodge very easy.
I recommend Kapama River Lodge to everyone who is looking for a holiday with no bad surprises as everything there was so much under control of experienced staff.
