Everything about this place is the BEST! From the moment we walked in, we were in awe with how amazing everything was, from the food and the staff to every single safari we went on. Our favorite part, besides seeing the Big 5, was how amazing the staff treated us. We felt like part of the Kapama family and they made us feel so special on our honeymoon. During safari, Jac was just the best! He was on top of his game when it came to tracking down the Big 5 with such skill and enthusiasm. He made every safari ride feel like the best, most exciting adventure. Jac did everything in his power to even track down the elusive leopard, which we were finally able to see on our 5th day there. We also had Barry, who was just as spectacular and knowledgable about all the animals. Last but certainly not least, our server Sam, was just wonderful!! His laugh and happiness was contagious and so endearing. We loved everyone at Kapama and thank them for making our vacation one to remember forever. This place is a MUST BOOK!…
Absolutely loved our stay at Kapama Southern Camp and the game viewing in the reserve. The villa was so beautiful and lovely. What an amazing experience in the game reserve, led by passionate ranger and tracker who also served us morning coffee/tea and drinks in the wild! Dinner experience was amazing with the bonfire every night! Would recommend this lodge to anyone visiting SA. And it is very near to the Hoedspruit airport. And yes, we saw the BIG 5!
Where to begin?! The accommodation is luxurious and magnificent and the food is outstanding! All of this can only be topped by the service of a staff that truly care about the quality of your experience! Add to this to daily three hour safaris with outstanding rangers and trackers for filling dreams of lifetimes and making memories that will last a lifetime! If you can afford it I would urge you only to stay here to experience this as it was unbelievable!
We (a family with two kids) spent two days at Kapama over Christmas and had our first safari experience. The lodge is top-notch and the luxury family villa was absolutely fantastic - beautiful, very spacious and with a private pool. Our ranger was very helpful and we had the safari car just for ourselves during the whole stay with four safaris. One area of clear improvement is special diets. My wife does not eat meat, which we had informed about already when making the reservation. The kitchen staff was however not able to properly take this into account and the meal alternatives without meat were pretty poor considering the price of the lodge and the overall standard. The restaurant staff was in general below the level of the other staff - with a little tired attitude.
The infrastructure was just amazing l, great food great accomodations, we got to see all of the animals on the first day. The people that work there are really really nice and our ranger Berry was just amazing awesome guy knows everything about the animals and it's really really nice when you go there make sure to ask for him he would make your experience as amazing as ours.
