Going to Kapama is a bucket list trip. The food and services are the best that you will ever receive. We took our 17,15 & 11 year old daughters. We all loved it. They provide more food than you will ever want and every bite is delicious! The guides and trackers will become your friends and the staff are the...

This is a very professional outfit. The rooms were amazing. The food was exceptionally good and each night we ate in a different location in the camp, each place with a different theme and mood.

Kapama is an amazing, large reserve and the Southern Camp provides luxurious accommodations that go hand in hand with the expert trackers and full safari experience. You get two long game drives a day. The same ranger & tracker takes care of you throughout your stay. Albert & Razer were a great team, and their impressive tracking skills and understanding...

Don't hesitate to book you games. Absolutely fantastic. Friendly rangers take you to wild animals safely. You can see all big five or more. They're just in front of you. Pack a warm jacket. Early morning or night wind is cold. Staff is very warm. Their good services pleased me. Free internet provided but gets down from time to time....

This was my first safari experience and I was totally blown away by the luxury and the service. Absolutely incredible. The lodges were very well appointed, the food was amazing - you definitely won't go hungry. The staff are very friendly and the safari jeeps were very comfortable. Would definitely go again.

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
