IP our Ranger and Justice our Tracker made our three days simply a Trip of a Life Time!!! We loved every minute of both the twice daily safaris and our Lodge time. Highly Recommend!!!! The location is directly across the road from the airport. The food was wonderful and service first class.

Perfect from the time you arrive and get vanilla fresh towels and welcome drinks to the time you unfortunately have to leave. Every where you go there is someone smiling and ready to help or say you "Hello". The bedroom is perfectly confortable and food is variate and delicious. Always on time, games are the high point of this trip....

Everything about this place is perfect, from the moment you get off the plane until right at the end of your stay. The food was beautiful and I wish I could have eaten more. We had two game drives daily and we saw more than we could have ever asked for. I would love to come back.

We stayed at the Southern Camp for two days on our trip to South Africa and had an incredible time. The service was amazing, our guide (yaluhn?- sometimes goes by yuri) was wonderful, the food was amazing, the rooms were amazing. The only suggestion I have is that upon arrival we were handed a champagne glass full of apple juice....

We had a fantastic time at the lodge 2 weeks ago. The staff there were really friendly, food was something different every night and the rooms were very comfortable. The best part of the whole trip was our drives; our ranger Nanette and her spotter Matteo were excellent. We saw lions up close and personal (even a couple mating), travelled...

It was really a wonderful experience our stay at Kapama. It met all our best estimations of this place. The meals, the safaris, the rooms were all of superb quality. The attention paid by all the staff was outstanding. Special mention to Lindi, our guide and Bernard our tracker.

Food was excellent, many options and tried things I would have not normally had. You will not go hungry. Our guide Stefan was the best, we saw lions every time. Loved all the animals around the camp. We can not wait to go back again.

Fantastic reserve with great safari tours. Passionate guides with full respect of the nature. Exceptional experience and a good chance to see the big 5. The hotel itself is of a western 4 star resort standard (not boutique and not 5 star). Rooms are comfortable and large. Service and staff extremely friendly. Only buffets are available for lunch and diner....
