We loved it from the very first moment. We booked in April but there were no more luxury family suites available for December, therefore they agreed in allocating us in a luxury double suite by adding an extra bed for our child. It was perfect and really very big for the three of us. We were astonished. There are a...

When we first arrived at Kapama Southern Camp, it was above our expectations. We stayed in a family suite which was impeccable. Very spacious, modern, luxurious, fresh…We just loved it. I agree with another review where they mention that the shower is open and it is impossible not to be seen. This is uncomfortable and could be fixed easily. Our...

We stayed for three nights in one of the luxury family suites, and whilst it was stunningly modern and luxurious, I would have preferred a little more privacy in the bathroom. There are no walls, just an open fireplace which separates the bathroom from the rest of the suite; which in turn means that anybody walking from the adjoining bedroom...

While this was our first trip to Africa and our first safari, I'm not sure there can be many analogues to the Kapama experience. Southern Camp is a well presented property with all of the standard conveniences. Our private pool in the suite was well utilised, as was the outdoor shower. The food is of a good standard, though is...

Doing a safari was a dream to me and my wife. Staff at Kapama Southern Camp made this dream come true with style.

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....

We had the most amazing time in Kapama, we arrived a little late and Alicia kindly delayed the safari so we could join, how pleased we were that they did and what a great start to our time there.

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...

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.

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
