My husband and I stayed at the Kapama River Lodge for 3 nights and wished we would have stayed longer. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had an excellent stay. We stayed in the Spa suites and our room was very nice. The bathroom looked out to the bush. The meals were buffet style and the food was pretty good. We absolutely LOVED our Ranger Roel and tracker. He was very knowledgeable and made sure we had the best game drive experience. We went on 6 game drives and saw the Big 5! I am very glad that we stayed at the River Lodge and not at any of the other lodges because we had the perfect location for the beautiful spa and pool. I highly recommend the Kapama River Lodge and can't wait to return soon!
