We stayed for three days in two of the pool villas and enjoyed every minute (didn't spend much time in the beautiful room though). The safari drives were excellent, saw many beautiful animals, even though we didn't see all of the big five (the best hunter stayed hidden unfortunately). Our guide François and the tracker Lizi (?) did a great...

We stayed for 3 wonderful days here with our 2 little girls. The service was spectacular, the villa with private pool was amazing too. Our guide was Albert and we learned so much, he went out of his way to find the elusive leopard and showed us so many things outside of just the big 5 (termite houses, spiders, chameleons,...

We recently had a four night stay at Kapama with friends ( making five of us in total ) - three of us stayed in a family suite which was excellent and worth the extra cost. The attention to detail offered by this resort was exceptional - the game drives were way beyond our expectations and a special praise goes...

Kapama Southern Camp was amazing. The accommodation was first class. We had the deluxe room with private pool. The food was excellent. Our stay was longer than average which meant we were able to see the big 5 twice, nearly 3 times but minus the leopard. Our guide OKIE and tracker, Advance, were just the very best. We felt that...

What a place, truly a 5 star experience! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were wonderfully spoilt. The staff were great, always on hand, yet never invasive. Our guide Liesl and our tracker Nico made sure that our every game drive was filled with animal sightings and a spectacular experience in the african bush. Sundowners...

Kapama Southern Camp was excellent. The accommodation and food were excellent. The staff all very helpful and friendly. We did six safaris and although we were warned that we wouldn’t necessarily see the big five, we did, plus many more animals. The Ranger was very knowledgeable and the jeep perfect to allow everybody to see. This was the highlight of...

My husband and I loved our stay in Kapama Southern Camp. This was, bar none, the best hotel where we stayed so far. The service is really impeccable. They made up our room twice a day, every time we were in the game drive. We always came back to a clean room with little treats (nougats or chocolates on the...

We've visited Kapama in feb 2016 with friends. If we could rate six stars, Kapama Southern Camp would earn them. The luxury suites are LUXURIOUS, service outstanding and atmosphere topleisure. Game drives relaxed and you'll surely see the big 5! Worth any detour. Food of high quality at right pricing. Chrisoetmestreech

We stayed 2 nights at the Southern Camp, and loved every minute of it! We stayed in a luxury suite, and if you can swing it, it's like having your own private villa. The suite was huge with cathedral thatched ceilings, two showers (indoor glass and outdoor), and a large patio with private pool. The suites were all staggered, so...

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
