I waited a couple of weeks to review Kapama. We had been to Moremi Crossing, Chobe Marina Lodge and Victoria Falls before coming here and we're already gobsmacked by where we stayed and what we had seen. Kapama Southern Camp is on a different level. Everything was fantastic. The rooms were wonderful, the service was ridiculous, the meals were fantastic,...

Kapama Southern Camp is a true Oasis in a private game reserve. Every public space is visually stunning. The bath rooms in the standard rooms are very large, modern and comfortable. However, the standard rooms tend to be dark and small...I wish we could have stayed in a luxury suite, they are DIVINE! Ask for room 8 or 9 and...

Beautiful single-storey hotel spread over several attractive public buildings and lodge buildings. It’s all about contemporary African and it works very well. Our bedroom (24) was spacious, had it’s own veranda and was nicely appointed with a modern bathroom and good quality bed. Room service was excellent. We were at least 200m from the main reception and riding buildings which...

This safari camp, which is located very near Hoedspruit airport, did everything right! Our twice-daily game drives (guided by Allister with Carlos as the tracker) were perfectly done in a comfortable vehicle----we saw unbelievable African animal settings. The food is wonderful. My wife had a birthday and the dining room staff brought her a cake and sang African songs for...

Kapama Southern Lodge caters for well healed elderly market and the overall safari experience was extremely disappointing. We were given a very nice spacious room with it's own pool area but the reason you come for this is not for the room. Kapama is a private reserve which is fences in the animals and it soon became apparent that the...

My husband and I stayed at the reserve for about four days. Our lodge was absolutely wonderful to stay in. The service all around was easily a 5 star rating. The food was great and the hours to eat were perfect. There is so many activities you can do in between your game drives or taking a nap or lap...

My wife and I had a three-night package in late July 2016. We were picked up at the local airport by Albert, our ranger, who turned out to be a most professional guide for our stay. After a 30-minute drive (during which we saw our first giraffe!) we arrived at the camp and were quickly shown to our room. We...

My husband and I decided to go to Kapama Southern Camp for our honeymoon. The staff was pleasant, humble, and professional. Everyone that worked there made us feel at home.

We were lucky and saw all the big 5, but you need to know ahead of time that this is a closed fenced in reserve. Game was limited due to size of reserve and not being open to Kruger. Staff was great. Food was great and lodge was nice.

Spent 3 days/4 nights. Beautiful grounds, excellent service. The trackers and rangers are knowledgeable and guarantee and wonderful safari experience. The food is great and plentiful.

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. 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. ... more   less
