High-end affordable safari

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Jul 2021
Amazing service and food at a high-end safari resort at an affordable price. The villas are a must for the outdoor shower experience and slash pools. We were there during a historic cold spell and would have appreciated the fireplace as advertised but when we got to our room we unfortunately discovered villas don't have fireplaces anymore which was disappointing and left us pretty cold at night. Other than that I would highly recommend this world-class resort in the African bush.

A must do on everyone's bucket list! Best value for money! All that you have to do is rest and enjoy yourself! Learnt so much on my game viewing trips. From a food and drinks perspective: I think it is impossible to finish all the delicious food on offer! The drinks selection is amazing and it really awesome to know that all drinks are included in the price!

Kapama SC is a lovely base for game drives on the eastern cape. Its main gate is conveniently located just across from Hoedspruit Airport. A ranger met us at the airport and whisked us to KSC (25 minute drive in a safari jeep). Game drives occur at 630 am and again at 4 pm. Snacks, blankets and hot water bottles were much appreciated. Our day drives were much more successful with regard to wildlife, and our tracker and ranger were top notch. The food is EXCELLENT. They took care of me so well, making items that fit my vegetarian lifestyle. Honestly with pre morning drive snacks, morning coffee, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, evening drive drinks and snacks and dinner, you are never hungry! My husband and I stayed in villa 3, which was lovely. The mini bar was stocked, and the modern room was clean and well designed. I always appreciate chairs to relax on rather than only having a bed or desk chair for sitting. Because it was cold, we did not utilize the plunge pool, but it looked inviting. I enjoyed the impala and wart hog visitors, and the staff were ALL amazing. I DO recommend, but note these few issues: Kapama is a private reserve, so the area and animals are fenced, albeit in a vast area. That felt a little bit like cheating, and I did not realize this as my travel agent booked it. The villa's shower is all glass and windows without a door/curtain on the outside or inside. While probably only visible to wildlife, it made me uncomfortable. The shower floor is very slick, without any sort of mat. The room has one door that separates the bed/sitting area from half of the bathroom, but then the same wall is open and without door/partition on the other end, making most of the bathroom exposed and, frankly, cold. Finally, there is a lot of down time in the afternoon with nothing to do between 11 am and 3 pm. In warm weather with the pool or with kids, this might be a bonus, but as two adults who like to "do" during a holiday, we got bored. Neither of us enjoy a spa and the villas do not have tv/movies at all. There was too much time unfilled. While we did take advantage of a visit to the elephant sanctuary at additiinal cost, I wish they had offered some activities during that time such as a cooking class, wine tasting or even a bush walk.
