My husband and I decided to go to Kapama Southern Camp for our honeymoon. The staff was pleasant, humble, and professional. Everyone that worked there made us feel at home. Okey and Joseph were our Safari guides. They made each safari outing unique and fun. Both were very knowledgeable. Lebo helped us organize everything weeks before getting there and during... More

We were lucky and saw all the big 5, but you need to know ahead of time that this is a closed fenced in reserve. Game was limited due to size of reserve and not being open to Kruger. Staff was great. Food was great and lodge was nice.

Spent 3 days/4 nights. Beautiful grounds, excellent service. The trackers and rangers are knowledgeable and guarantee and wonderful safari experience. The food is great and plentiful. We were there in early September, when the weather was cool in the morning and evening, warm midday. Bring warm clothes for the early morning and late evening drives, as it can get cool.... More

Visited the game lodge with a group of 22 and it was beautiful. Beautiful surroundings, great staff that made it a wonderful stay. *However the kiddies menu needs more attention as most of the kids had to eat from the buffet due to the kiddies food being cold or not appetising.

Very luxurious! Cannot believe you're out in the african wilderness It is a fenced private reserve, so the animals are containted which to me increases your chances of sighting them. The staff are also amazingly helpful and knowlegable which makes the stay so relaxed and easy

We stayed at Kapama Southern two weeks ago and it exceeded our expectations in all respects. The accommodations were beyond what we imagined and the staff was all very attentive and friendly. Our guide, PJ, and our tracker, Kevin, both worked very hard to find all the game we wanted to see. I can say without qualification that this was... More

I have previously been on three different tours in Africa and the others left me thinking that there was something I had missed out on This was by far the best trip of any of them. Unlike other tours, the Kapama experience has you based at one of 4 lodges on a large private game reserve and wildlife game drives... More

My children and I spent 4 nights at Kapama, and we loved every moment! The staff is wonderfully inviting and willing to help with anything you may need. We had a Family Luxury Suite, and it was gorgeous. The master bathroom was indulgent for sure! You had the option to shower in nature, as well as in the room or... More

You simply have to go! My husband and I took our 14 year old daughter and 16 year old son to Southern Camp, where we felt totally spoilt and well looked after. We all looked forward to the wonderful safari trips with Albert and Ischmel - they made the safaris fun and informative - we felt safe at all times... More

Great place to see the wild animals. Really great guides and friendly staff. The meals are really delicious. At the breakfast you get all the American and European meals. The dinner is served at the campfire. You eat with your guide. So you have the chance to get the know about the animals, camp or South Africa! We had a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kapama Southern Camp is the proud new addition to our Kapama Game Reserve family and is situated on the southern most section of the Kapama Private Game Reserve. It offers luxury safari accommodation, warm hospitality and friendly service in a tranquil setting which will satisfy even the most discerning nature lovers' taste. Relax in the lounge with a good book or just sit back and indulge in the breathtaking beauty of mother nature in all her splendour. Alternatively you can lazily lounge around our magnificent pool and deck area and stare into the vast African yonder, hopefully spotting some of the many animals that often pass in close proximity. If the African sun becomes too much to endure, a dip in the refreshing swimming pool will bring immediate relief, and the friendly barman will be on hand to spoil you with a tantalising cocktail.DiningBreakfast and lunches are normally served in the dining room with open sides, so you will always have nature just a few meters away while enjoying tasteful culinary creations from our qualified chefs . Dinner is served in the traditional outside Boma, again with nature as the backdrop and a starlit sky overhead creating the perfect setting.Southern Camp also boasts a fully equipped wine cellar where we stock only the finest wines from top South African vineyards in a perfectly humidified environment.Southern Camp Standard RoomsSouthern Camp offers 10 standard rooms. These include 4 family rooms catering for a maximum of two children under 12 per family room. All our standard rooms are equipped with an en-suite bathroom with shower only. Safe boxes and Coffee & Tea making facilities are standard in all rooms. The insect screens and air-conditioning will make the balmy summer evenings just so much more enjoyable.Southern Camp Suites (pictured below)Southern Camp also offers 15 Luxury Suites. En-suite and fully equipped with shower and baths, air-conditioning and a mini-bar fridge as a standard commodity. Take a relaxing bath and stare out the big wooden frame window, keeping an eye on the magnificently coloured birds just outside your suite or sit on your patio wile having your early morning coffee and feel the excitement build as you prepare for an exhilarating safari. ... more   less
