What an amazing place. Stunning setting and everything done to a very high standard. Accommodation, hospitality, food (crazy amounts but all delicious) and most importantly the game drives were all amazing. Highly recommend this lodge. Our guide was St. John and the spotter was Frank. Both were superb, knew so much, enthusiastic and good fun. Got in 5 drives in 3 days and saw an incredible amount. Such an enjoyable stay, all the staff so friendly and helpful, thanks everyone

Kapama South camp has splendid grounds and pool for those quiet in-between game drive hours. Lovely to see nyala wandering around. The food is excellent- though the constant need to feed us is a bit much! The rooms are nice if a little smaller than other upmarket lodges (misleading to call them a suite when there is no living area) and lack luggage storage space. The bathroom is very nice and the little verandah is good. Kapamaas a game drive site is fabulous. The elephants so numerous, plains animals everywhere, we were very lucky to see many lions including a mating pair, amazing leopard sightings and delightful hyena cubs. We even saw eagles display and mate. So wonderful game drives.

I had the most amazing experience at kapama! From the pickup at the airport by Moshe, to the luxury accommodations, it was superb. The best part of the trip was getting to meet our amazing safari guides: Lindi and selebe. They were amazing at following tracks and explaining to us what they were tracking on each game drive. They also took us on an informative and exciting bush walk in the afternoon! Lindi was so friendly and really gave my group the experience of a lifetime. Thank you for an amazing trip!

I stayed at Kapama southern camp for 3 nights in a private villa. From the moment we got there until the moment we left every single thing was just incredible. We went on 6 game drives with Lindy and Selbe. They were so knowledgeable about everything in the safari from the plants to the animals the tracks and more. Lindy was not only knowledgeable on all things safari she also made sure that we were having a good time and arranged airport pick ups, room changes, spa appointments and more. We had the best stay ever at Kapama southern camp and we were extremely sad to leave. Thankfully we have lots of pictures and memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you Lindy for the most amazing safari experience ever!

Be prepared to be blown away with efficient and warm service. They know excactly what they are doing ! Kapama aims to make you feel like a million dollars. Everything is impressive - the game drives, food ( wow!), inclusive drinks, amazing accommodation, beautiful gardens, excellent service and the list can just continue. Highly recommended. A quick hop from Hoedspruit airport, so super easy to get to.

Kapama is a must if you visit RSA. Incredible accommodations, great guides, and an overall really nice stay. I would highly recommend Kapama to anyone. I only stayed one night because of our work schedule, and it was still worth it.

What an experience from the minute you walk in…. It feels like home! This establishment cannot be complimented enough for their warmth kind heartedness, and their ability to make you feel like you have been here 1000 times. It’s starts with the lodge management who leads with this passion. The entire management team and their staff make you feel welcomed. They acknowledge everyone it doesn’t matter who you are and make a point to chat to everyone. The attention to detail in every aspect can be felt throughout this establishment. Having come from Kapama Karula I would recommend they send their entire team starting with their management team to get training at Southern Camp. Karula May look beautiful but lacks what Southern Camp has largely driven by the team managing it! Great hospitality…. Who are genuinely excited to host their guest! Southern camp is friendly, warm and welcoming! The restaurant is abuzz with happy cheerful employees making you feel at home. The quality was great and they accommodated all our request. Nothing is too much or a bother. The game drives are just as impressive! Richard was just fantastic and so knowledgeable! Sam in the restaurant went out of his way to accommodate us. Don’t hesitate to stay at this lodge! It’s a dream in every sense! We had a villa with a pool and loved the layout. The bathroom was huge with a well layed out bedroom overlooking the pool!

Richard and his team mate Orsi (?) exceptional and excellent safari leaders and we all enjoyed our time with them. They went out of their way to make sure we all had a great time in particularly the kids. Very helpful at all times with the grandpa who was not very fit, but with their help he managed well and was able to have a very enjoyable time.
