Kapula is a game viewing paradise during the dry season where guests can see vast herds of elephant and buffalo in addition to plain game, and hear the lions roar at night. The Kapula concession consists of two camps: North Camp with four 2-bed luxury safari tents on raised wooden decks with en-suite bathrooms and additional outside showers, self-catering; and South Camp with four 2-bed safari tents, on concrete slabs on the ground with en-suite bathrooms, self-catering. We prefer to keep the camps small and intimate. There is no 24 hour standby electricity at Kapula and all rooms’ electrical requirements are solar-generated. Guests are therefore not able to use hairdryers, kettles etc. in the rooms. The communal main building does have facilities for charging camera batteries, cell phone batteries etc. Both camps have a kitchen equipped with all the necessities.

This was our first trip to Kapula and we spent 5 heavenly nights at South Camp, which we had all to ourselves. It's a real bush camp with ALL the amenities, a separate kitchen tent which is really well appointed and 4 tents within easy walking distance of each other. Solar lighting is grand and the boma, located outside the kitchen tent is a great place to sit at night. There is also a very comfortable raised look out for game viewing. Just bliss, we hope to return sooner than later and definitely to South Camp, with friends!

We spent a few days at Kapula during March, just before the Corona panic. This was our second visit and we had some friends join us. The location and setting is beautiful! The camp is super comfortable although it is starting to show the signs of a little age. The overall experience was brilliant! The only real challenge we had was that William was keeping his fish in the freezer! That was pretty grim! I can however highly recommend the experience at North camp, and would certainly return!

Dear Valuable Guest Apologies for the late response. The person responsible for our marketing has been unavailable and these responsibilities have now changed. Thank you for the compliments and we are pleased that your overall experience was positive. Our plans were to have send upgrades of tents to Kapula already, but with lockdown and transportation challenges, this was not possible yet. It is very important to receive feedback of unappealing encounters from our guests, thank you for bringing the freezer issue under our attention - we will definitely make sure that doesn't happen again. Looking forward to host you back at Kapula soon again!

This place is amazing staff so friendly and always willing to help. Stayed at the north camp and facilities were top notch. Loved the outside shower very refreshing especially as the weather was scorching. Lovely environment in the middle of the Bush with lions roaring in the night. A hidden Gem in the park. Highly recommended

The camp was truly amazing and we couldn't fault one thing. The camp manager Taurai is incredible and keeps the place spotless. We visited Kapula in summer after the rains and didn't expect to see much game, however we still saw elephants, leopards and lions as well as many plains game species. All in all we had a spectacular few days at Kapula and can't wait to return. We would highly recommend visiting.

Kapula as always was super clean, amazing staff and the deep freezer kept us supplied with much needed ice. Kapula is one of those places that you never get tired of. Our favourite is South Camp as you can walk from your tent to the main sitting area and kitchen. Sitting in the Lookout tent we spent many hours watching a few Ele bulls, many impala, a few zebra, Giraffe, Kudu and even saw a cheatah one evening.
