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

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

We stayed here for my wife's birthday. The jeep: The land cruiser was the perfect ride. No roof, no windows, can travel rough roads, high seats for the perfect view! The driver and the tracker: Both the driver and the tracker were both experienced. The driver was very informative and the tracker did his job really well (spotting animals before... More

We spent three nights in the Kapama Southern Camp as part of our Planes, Trains and Safarimobiles booking. This "camp" was an amazing place with luxurious accommodations, excellent guides and trackers, and a wide variety of foods that were available all too often. But, the highlight of the entire three days was the ANIMALS and birds. We were able to... More

I visited Kapama with a group of friends on 15th August for just one night and we had a fantastic stay and experience! It left us gushing about the place even when we left the lodge - such a huge pity that we couldn't secure a longer stay. The lodge was luxurious with our needs met throughout the way -... More

This is one of two lodges in a high-end private game reserve on the edge of Kruger National Park. I preferred it to its sister facility, the Kapama River Lodge, which was too big for my tastes.. The service was good. The rooms, while not as large as those at River Lodge, were well appointed and very comfortable. The rangers... 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
