Travellers' Choice
Reminiscent of a traditional African safari camp, Kapama Buffalo Camp offers a unique and intimate experience in the African bush. It is ideal for discovering big game Africa in true safari tented style without compromising on comfort. Ten luxury build canvas en-suite tents, each sleeping two, are set on wooden decks built on stilts over a steep-sided riverbank. Wooden walkways interconnect the rooms, which are all in the upper reaches of tall riverine trees. But the thick African bush is just a glance away, inhabited by animals like lion, hyena and jackal whose calls can be heard in the dead of night making Kapama Buffalo Camp a truly authentic way to experience the African bush.

For us everything you need on a Safari. Staff is top. Food. Game viewing. Simple and luxurious at the same time. Service. Can’t but say: we want to come back asap. Quiet. Only 20 guests. Right on the bush. We saw all big 5 thanks to the relentless effort by Rassie and Forest.

The hospitality and kindness at the camp is excellent they treat you like your a good friend of them. The game drives they show you the small things you will definitely miss when you drive alone and they learn you facts from trees to Elephant. Definitely they will see me again.
