Adolph, our driver, was kind, funny, adventures, knowledgeable and was a perfect host during our stay. Shadrack, our ranger, was also extremely kind and wise, soft spoken and very warm with us, very lovable man. We were... More

Our travel company booked this Game Reserve for the first of two reserves. We were greeted at the airport by staff and driven in to Kapama. We were so pleased with the size (not big!) of the lodge and all staff members were extremely friendly. Our game driver Adolph was phenomenal! His knowledge of detail within the reserve was fantastic.... More

Five star reserve with 5 star service. Great food, great service. The game drives are 3 hours long each and we never went more than 10-15 minutes without seeing animals. They were everywhere and the reserve is ecologically astute. The animals are not tampered with and don't have human contact. It is as wild as it can be considering they... More

We spent 3 days at the Kapama Southern Camp. Our room and common areas were nicely appointed, and the chef did a wonderful job providing a nice variety of dishes. The service staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only issue that we had with the lodge was that compared to other guides/trackers that other guests had and ones we... More

We stayed at Kapama Southern Camp for 5 nights in October 2015. The food and lodging is exceptional. All levels of service are very good indeed.

I stayed at Kapama Southern Camp for 4 nights. It is conveniently located nearby HDS airport, the game viewing was really good, the guide and tracker truly knowledgable, and the attention to detail in service was simply superb. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed.

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
