Kapama offers tranquility out of this world. Can’t wait to visit Kapama annually for recharge and rejuvenate. The booking process and hospitality from arrival till departure gives value for money. Big up to the staff at large.

I planned a trip for my girlfriend and I to Kapama Private Game Reserve (Southern Camp) in mid-June, 2021. I had planned this trip with the intention of proposing during our stay; however, as I had never visited, I was uncertain of how to go about this or where the best place to do this might be.

After receiving endless help from the staff and rangers (particularly Nelani, Viljoen and Simon) prior to our stay even commencing, we had planned out a spectacular setting at the Romantic Sleep Out - a sleep out under the stars in the reserve's "Lion's Den". The proposal went perfectly and our sleep out was unreal, and what followed was 3 days of celebrating in absolute bush-bliss luxury.

Each day started off with some tea, coffee and pastries at 06h00 before we left for our morning game drive. Our game ranger and tracker, Jaques and Kenny, were brilliant and we would recommend them to anyone. We had the most incredible sightings and each game drive was different from the last; Jaques and Kenny even took particular note of specific animals we were hoping to see and we saw every one on the list.

Back at the camp, every meal - from breakfast, to high-tea, to supper - was superb. Our waiter, Sam, took such good care of us at every sitting and ensured that our glasses were never empty, not even for a minute.

Our room (which was a family villa) was absolutely breathtaking; we had everything we needed and more for a perfect stay in luxury.

Thank you very much Kapama for an unforgettable experience, this truly was a trip of a lifetime. We haven't stopped speaking about it and telling friends and family about it, and we don't think we ever will.

Room tip: We recommend opting for a villa / family villa

From the minute we arrived there we were treated to excellent service; from reception to management. The game drives were fantastic and the rangers went the extra mile to ensure we had the complete bush experience, seeing the Big 5.
The food was superb with every dish enhanced by the beautiful surroundings.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Excellent staff , excellent food, excellent game viewing.

If visiting try and pre-book Jabu and his tracker Lot! They are an incredible duo who are not only friendly but hyper knowledgeable and get just as excited as you get when something cool has been seen! From seeing the big 5 (leopard multiple times too) we got to see an array of other animals one does not normally see from civets, honey badgers, bush babies, Veroux owls, jackal, genet amongst a host of the staples such giraffe, zebra, impala, hippo etc.. On multiple game drives we attempted to spot hyena which we didn’t but the duo always remained upbeat and never gave up as we continued with the search. They were equally as patient as we were waiting for a female giraffe to give birth to a new baby and sat watching her for an hour and were running well over our 3 hour game drive. I cannot state enough to Kapama management what gem these two are! They are a big asset!

Definitely once arriving book a bush walk where you move from becoming a spectator in a vehicle to a participant in the bush! The experience was an easy walk through the bush with our ranger Jabu and a more than capable and super knowledgeable walking guide, Chris accompanied us. We were safe, we got to exercise and we got to learn more about the reserve, it’s plants and tracking animals!

The food was on top form and of good quality. The service was friendly. I would just say that management could have a (very) gentle word with the servers to maybe not rush meal services as much but other than that extremely minor issue the food and service was flawless.

The room itself was clean, comfortable and world class. The cleaning staff come in and remake beds after your afternoon nap and do a classic turndown service and refold towels etc. which was a nice touch.

I will definitely be making my way back here as soon as possible for this perfect bush getaway.

Kapama Southern Camp was the experience of a lifetime. We took our 2 young children with us (7 & 9) and booked a family suite. This is one of those rare occaisions when the reality is better than the photos. Beautifuly decorated and spotlessly clean with an amazing patio and private pool. The food was superb and the service excellent. Our game drives were very exciting and the kids loved every minute of them. This was one of those places that as soon as we left, we started discussing when we would come back.
