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...

The Lodge at Kapama Southern Camp is really beautiful. The reception area and gift shop are really pleasing to the eye. The Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The rooms had all the amenities that you might need. They were situated in the gardens and had good views. There was a lovely pool and next to it was a bar/tea...

Pre breakfast - Breakfast- Lunch - high tea - and diner. All beautifully presented and cooked. Game drives wonderful with a feeling of being the only vehicle there. Each drive was varied with its own charm.

A wonderful place. Beautiful, modern, yet part of the breathtaking nature. Excellent service, out of this world food. Very friendly and knowledgeable trackers (I learned so much, Doctor). First class operation. Will not hesitate to stay there every time I am in the neighborhood. One of the nicest places I even stayed.

We stayed at Southern Camp with friends for 4 nights on our first safari. The whole experience was 5*and so much more. Accommodation was excellent; every time we returned to our room it had been cleaned/tidied and was always immaculate. The food and restaurant service was fabulous; you have a waiter/waitress assigned to you at the beginning of the week...

Everything about this place is amazing. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate, staff and service was great, and the food was incredible. Our ranger, Ockie and tracker, Advance were awesome - entertaining, attentive, and made sure we had a great time. The wake-up call is at 5, you have a light snack, coffee and tea around 5:30 and then leave...

We stayed for three days in two of the pool villas and enjoyed every minute (didn't spend much time in the beautiful room though). The safari drives were excellent, saw many beautiful animals, even though we didn't see all of the big five (the best hunter stayed hidden unfortunately). Our guide François and the tracker Lizi (?) did a great...

We stayed for 3 wonderful days here with our 2 little girls. The service was spectacular, the villa with private pool was amazing too. Our guide was Albert and we learned so much, he went out of his way to find the elusive leopard and showed us so many things outside of just the big 5 (termite houses, spiders, chameleons,...

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
