From pick up at hoedspruit airport to our drop off to go home again, the staff at kapama made our honeymoon visit perfect. The tents were brilliant.... Not a single insect was seen inside and the aircon is great! Very luxurious! We saw animals from our balcony too! The setting is beautiful, lounge, restaurant, bar and boma. Food is 5 star!
Both ranger, Almero and our tracker, Benny were superb! So knowledgable and friendly and enthusiastic. We saw soooo many animals and learned a lot too. There were loads of baby animals and we even saw a beautiful chameleon! We got incredible photos. We went to the spa and had massages, which were in between safaris meaning we did not have to miss out!
Every time we arrived back to camp there was someone waiting to welcome us, nothing was ever a problem.
For young or old, (we are late twenties) buffalo camp at kapama is simply incredible and I think that anyone who goes will be converted to a safari addict! This was our first and will certainly not be our last!! Thank you for a fab few days! Fiona and Rob
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Reminiscent of a traditional African safari camp, Kapama Buffalo Camp offers a unique and intimate experience in the African bush. It is ideal for discovering big game Africa in true safari tented style without compromising on comfort.Ten luxury newly build canvas tents, each sleeping two, are set on wooden decks built on stilts over a steep-sided riverbank. Wooden walkways interconnect the rooms, which are all in the upper reaches of tall riverine trees. The river below rarely flows and antelopes are seen daily walking along the sandy riverbed. Each tented room has all the usual comforts of electricity, en-suite bathroom, safe, writing table, wardrobe, low impact climate control, mini-bar and tea/coffee facilities.The communal areas of Buffalo Camp are on the riverbank, where gardens of succulent aloes and euphorbia are tended around the thatched bar, dining room, pool terrace and campfire. But the thick African bush is just a glance away, inhabited by animals like lion, hyena and jackal whose calls can be heard in the dead of night. Lanterns, rather than electric lights, glow at night under the trees, creating a special intimate ambience particular to Buffalo Camp.With a maximum of 20 guests at Buffalo Camp, special attention is paid to personal service and the staff become like friends. Kapama Buffalo Camp is a truly authentic way to experience the African bush. ... more less
