Love the double vanity bathroom, seprate tub and shower!! Lodge Ground - keep your eyes open for lovely animals around your lodge. They're just... More

We - family of four - stayed at the Southern Camp in August 2015 for two days. We liked the place, hotel, rooms (as long as you don't stay in the standard rooms/suites), the game experience. But is it the perfect place to go - like for example Hilltop? No. Let me explain in detail: 1. The location is nice... More

The lodge is luxurious, modern, beautiful and conveniently located. Our family stayed in two rooms for 2 nights, a luxury suite and a suite. We discovered the suite was actually the size of a small hotel room and was connected to other rooms on the other side of the property which was very disappointing as the web site does not... More

I've just returned from a magnificent trip to Kapama Southern Camp for five nights, and I want to return now! First time in South Africa, first time safari but Wow! This is a fenced private reserve. We decided to go here rather than anywhere else or Kruger, as we wanted guaranteed animal sitings. Animals jump and cross fences! We witnessed... More

"Safari" has been taken to a whole new level! "Safari" has become civilized...Gone are the round mud huts with thatch roofs and rickety, uncomfortable vehicles. The suites at Kapama Southern Camp each have their own private plunge pool, thoughtful amenities such as a Lavazza capsule coffee machine, exquisite decor and lots of room. The open safari vehicles are comfortable and... More

The lodge is magnificent. We had a cabin with its own swimming pool, inside and outside showers and a gas fire. The room was luxury at its best - very large and very modern. Wifi in the room was free. However, that was about the only thing that was. All drinks were charged, even water - including on game drives... More

Going to Kapama is a bucket list trip. The food and services are the best that you will ever receive. We took our 17,15 & 11 year old daughters. We all loved it.

This is a very professional outfit. The rooms were amazing. The food was exceptionally good and each night we ate in a different location in the camp, each place with a different theme and mood. The staff are hand picked and very helpful. You have the one guide for the whole stay, and the guides are all very knowledgable. The... 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
