This was our first safari so I didn't know what to expect. I liken it to a land cruise with animals. Our suite was magnificent. A large bedroom (and equally large bed), wonderful bathroom and patio with pool. Everything was spotless. We could watch impala...More

We stayed at a family room, a lot a space (for two adults and two kids), very comfortable, private swimming pool and very nice and clean. Staff very very kind, including the ranger and the tracker. The safaris were unbelievable! Fantastic !

Kapama Southern Camp was an amazing experience. The resort is 5 star quality in an intimate setting. Nestled in the South African bush, it feels like you are a part of the environment. Wide open dining and pool area allow for non-threatening animals to walk...More

What an amazing place. Travelling with a 10 and 12 year old, everyone was amazing with the children. Our guide even took them fishing one day. Everything about this place is 6 star. Just an amazing experience and saw the Big 5.

About
Description
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 More 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. All 15 standard suites at Southern Camp have full en-suite bathrooms with picture windows to enjoy the surrounding scenery and birdlife. Air conditioning, minibars and tea and coffee stations are standard in all suites of this five-star safari accommodation. Private patios offer the opportunity to enjoy relaxing sundowners, while game watching at the same time. Kapama Southern Camp also has 7 luxury suites. These 95 ㎡ luxury suites have their own private lap pool, inside and outside showers, large minibar, espresso machine and a romantic fireplace open to the bath and bedroom. Southern Camp offers 3 luxury Family Suites each with a lap pool and a separate connected bedroom for children with its own bath, shower, double vanity and outside patio. Less

We do offer trips into Kruger but if you are staying at Kapama I am sure they will arrange for you to visit a local village or a day trip to Kruger
