Really enjoyed our stay at the Kapama Buffalo Camp. The personal touch was great and the "tents" were just perfect. Appreciated the work of the Tracker Foster and the Guide Robert. It was a wonderful experience

We stayed 3 nights at this incredible place. We loved the personal touch provided but every single staff member and were always very well taken care off. The so called tents turned out to be cottages placed high above the ground, well apart from each other. Our six safari rides were superb. We could really feel the passion of our... More

Having been on safari numerous times both in Kruger and in Tanzania my wife and I were blown away by the whole experience at Buffalo Camp. The service, food, accommodation and the game viewing, all were exceptional and far exceeded our expectations 10/10 all round!

Although I have been to many safaris, a Kapama experience is somehow extraordinary. From the time you are planning your trip until your arrival, the attentive and helpful staff make sure the whole trip is well prepared and glitch free. On your arrival, they go over your itinerary and even suggest other activities that you may want to do while... More

Oh my goodness this was our favourite part of our holiday without any doubt! From the minute we were greeted by Chardy and Patricia we felt so well looked after. We got to know Chardy because she was around at meal times - shooing away the monkeys - very friendly, happy lady. Patricia was always there too when we needed... More

What a great place. Rob and Foster were absolutely fantastic. We went on 8 drives with them and saw amazing things each time. In one drove we saw all of the Big 5!!! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The rest of the staff were also wonderful. I highly recommend a trip here.

This is a review that I should have written months ago. We visited Kapama Buffalo Camp at the end of Oct 2015. It was a trip of a life time and far exceeded our expectations. We spent 4 glorious nights there. The weather was a little hot but perfect. I would first like to commend our Ranger, Jeffery. He was... More

We spent 4 days and Kapama and I am so glad we did. We were received by a very welcoming and helpful staff that immediate made us feel welcomed into their camp. We had complimentary drinks while waiting for our rooms to be done. The rooms were luxurious tents with magnificent views. The food was to die for and my... More

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 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
