Kapama River Lodge is situated within Kapama Game Reserve, and presents the perfect blend between luxurious safari accommodation and a generous bed capacity of 64 bedrooms. Although large, it is so stylish, roomy and beautifully positioned along a dry riverbed, that guests fall in love with it. Each spacious room at Kapama River Lodge features a full en-suite bathroom and terrace with uninterrupted views into the leafy-green Big 5 game reserve. The central guest entertainment areas include a large rim-flow swimming pool with sun umbrellas and recliners for lazy afternoons. The long L-shaped relaxation lounge and bar under a double-volume thatch, curves around the pool and on either side is a huge double-sided fireplace creating a wondrous open-plan yet cosy atmosphere. The Rhino Boma dining area with tables arranged under a low thatch in a horseshoe curve, has a central open space where a roaring outdoor fire gives a glow to evening meals. Buffet-style meals introduce African flavours with Pan African dishes using fresh local ingredients and specialist dishes. Excluded from rate: A conservation Levy of R114 (including VAT) per person per night. This contribution will go towards the conservation efforts and the work of the Anti-Poaching Unit in their on-going wildlife protection efforts.

Yes - the water was fine at Kapama and there was plenty of bottled water available left by housekeeping. Regarding the gift shop -- they had all of the usual things you would find--souvenirs, jewelry, clothing, it was a nice shop(nice merchandise for a property like this). Regarding tipping - it is best(and most preferred by the staff to tip in Rands. You can add the gratuity to your account at check out. On our last day we tipped our server(who was WONDERFUL), our safari guide and navigator, the bartenders. The staff will accept US currency too since they have the ability to change that once in town. For the safari guide we tipped $20 US per day - and $10 per day for the navigator. The US dollar is VERY strong in South Africa right now. I felt that we had a hard time spending money while we were there. Enjoy -- it is a wonderful experience.
