WOW! This was our first experience of travel in Africa and it did not disappoint! First game was spotted before the plane even reached the terminal and it did not stop from then on. We saw the Big 5 on our first game drive. Winners! The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and plentiful, the rooms are spotless and...

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...

We recently stayed for two nights in the Luxury Chalet #1 - large, detached, very modern, and secluded with its own swimming pool.

Our small group of 12 spent 4 wonderful days at the Reserve. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave, the entire staff is at your beck and call. Warm friendly people at every level. Our "suite" came with our own private pool. Great size and modern amenities. Wifi in every room to boot! Game drives were fantastic!...

We opted for a luxury suite and it was worth every penny. Actually it was a large detached chalet with its own plunge pool. Being totally secluded you could swim in the buff if so inclined. The chalet was large well equipped and extremely comfortable. Kapama is a relatively small reserve and as a result you do find a number...

This resort was life changing for our family. We loved every aspect of Kampala Southern Camp. Our experience from booking to departure was beyond any other resort I've ever stayed in that claims to be 5 star. This resort delivers! We were picked up at the airport in a hotel keep, and saw animals on our way to check in....

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
