We've visited Kapama in feb 2016 with friends. If we could rate six stars, Kapama Southern Camp would earn them. The luxury suites are LUXURIOUS, service outstanding and atmosphere topleisure. Game drives relaxed and you'll surely see the big 5! Worth any detour. Food of high quality at right pricing. Chrisoetmestreech

We stayed 2 nights at the Southern Camp, and loved every minute of it! We stayed in a luxury suite, and if you can swing it, it's like having your own private villa. The suite was huge with cathedral thatched ceilings, two showers (indoor glass and outdoor), and a large patio with private pool. The suites were all staggered, so...

Can't say enough good things about this place! We stayed for 5 nights at the southern camp in one of the luxury lodges and it was absolutely incredible - complete luxury!

Southern Camp is a beautiful luxury hotel with a small number of guests, which makes it feel slightly more exclusive than it's companion River Lodge - which was also a great hotel. Our room was lovely and backed out into the bush itself. The food was good, the bar service was good and they had some charming, attentive staff. Alistair,...

Nice lodge. Great service. My only complaints were that while my husband and I were traveling by ourselves, our reservation was booked as a group by the tour company. It was very frustrating because every meal, they sat us with our "group". I went to management several times and nothing seemed to work. All we wanted was a table to...

We loved it from the very first moment. We booked in April but there were no more luxury family suites available for December, therefore they agreed in allocating us in a luxury double suite by adding an extra bed for our child. It was perfect and really very big for the three of us. We were astonished. There are a...

When we first arrived at Kapama Southern Camp, it was above our expectations. We stayed in a family suite which was impeccable. Very spacious, modern, luxurious, fresh…We just loved it. I agree with another review where they mention that the shower is open and it is impossible not to be seen. This is uncomfortable and could be fixed easily. Our...

We stayed for three nights in one of the luxury family suites, and whilst it was stunningly modern and luxurious, I would have preferred a little more privacy in the bathroom. There are no walls, just an open fireplace which separates the bathroom from the rest of the suite; which in turn means that anybody walking from the adjoining bedroom...

While this was our first trip to Africa and our first safari, I'm not sure there can be many analogues to the Kapama experience. Southern Camp is a well presented property with all of the standard conveniences. Our private pool in the suite was well utilised, as was the outdoor shower. The food is of a good standard, though is...

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
