is kapama like going to a "disneyland" type resort?

so i've been up and down with searching for a good lodge.

Siyabona, Arathusa, Kapama, Sabi Sands, etc.

so far, Kapama has the best TA opinions...(or least worse).

however, i have also read kapama is "fenced"...hence the high animal sightings....does that mean it's sort of .... "Bush Gardens / Disneyland" type?

Not even close to Disney or enlcosed fence atmosphere. We only saw the fence a few times--it's about 25K hectares--large reserve. I can see where river Lodge might be a bit congested on drives when it's full occupancy. I'd avoid the "activities" for extra charge, like elephant encounter. Just enjoy the drives.

You can put your mind to rest as nowhere in South Africa will you find a Disneyland type resort
