Growing up in South Africa I had the pleasure of taking a lot of wildlife safari vacations with my parents - Kruger, Hluhluwe, Umfolozi, Addo, St Lucia Lake, etc. An American friend visited Kapama Southern Camp last year and raved about it so we took her advice and went to see. It was incredible. I've never seen so many animals...

I never thought I'd get the chance to do a luxury safari but, thanks to Kapama Southern Camp, my dream came true. My friend and I arrived in our rental car and, after signing in at the front gate, proceeded to drive down to Southern Camp. Within a few minutes we had already seen lions lounging, warthogs running and a...

After spending a month in South Africa, The Kapama River Lodge stands out as the most memorable. The service, the game drives, and the gluten free meals were simply the best we found. This was the only place that served gluten free bread, as well as morning snacks.

we stayed here for 2 nights having previously stayed at River Lodge Camp. Southern camp is a step up even further in luxury and tranquility. We had one of the suites with a pool and it was so beautiful we didn't want to leave. Everything about the place was just perfect and we can't wait to return.

Rangers and trackers do a phenomenal job tracking. Remember your in the bush you have to find the animals and they did! Spotted a Leopard day one with its kill close by. The staff is super 5 star service all around. The entire Kapama team made my 40th Birthday very special. We also visited the spa for a 4 hour...

We had an amazing time at Kapama, the staff is truly attentive and friendly and our game drives were awesome. First of all, our game drive team was great, both our Ranger A and our tracker N were really nice people and did a great job. We saw an adult lion (and other animals) on our first ride, it was...

Our two night, three day stay at Kapama was truly memorable. I read all of the average to terrible reviews before writing this and It makes me wonder if we stayed at the same lodge. We loved everything about the place and if ever we returned to Africa for a safari, we would stay at Kapama again. Most of the...

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
