I cannot recommend this place enough. Excellent staff , excellent food, excellent game viewing. If visiting try and pre-book Jabu and his tracker Lot! They are an incredible duo who are not only friendly but hyper knowledgeable and get just as excited as you get when something cool has been seen! From seeing the big 5 (leopard multiple times too) we got to see an array of other animals one does not normally see from civets, honey badgers, bush babies, Veroux owls, jackal, genet amongst a host of the staples such giraffe, zebra, impala, hippo etc.. On multiple game drives we attempted to spot hyena which we didn’t but the duo always remained upbeat and never gave up as we continued with the search. They were equally as patient as we were waiting for a female giraffe to give birth to a new baby and sat watching her for an hour and were running well over our 3 hour game drive. I cannot state enough to Kapama management what gem these two are! They are a big asset! Definitely once arriving book a bush walk where you move from becoming a spectator in a vehicle to a participant in the bush! The experience was an easy walk through the bush with our ranger Jabu and a more than capable and super knowledgeable walking guide, Chris accompanied us. We were safe, we got to exercise and we got to learn more about the reserve, it’s plants and tracking animals! The food was on top form and of good quality. The service was friendly. I would just say that management could have a (very) gentle word with the servers to maybe not rush meal services as much but other than that extremely minor issue the food and service was flawless. The room itself was clean, comfortable and world class. The cleaning staff come in and remake beds after your afternoon nap and do a classic turndown service and refold towels etc. which was a nice touch. I will definitely be making my way back here as soon as possible for this perfect bush getaway.

Kapama Southern Camp was the experience of a lifetime. We took our 2 young children with us (7 & 9) and booked a family suite. This is one of those rare occaisions when the reality is better than the photos. Beautifuly decorated and spotlessly clean with an amazing patio and private pool. The food was superb and the service excellent. Our game drives were very exciting and the kids loved every minute of them. This was one of those places that as soon as we left, we started discussing when we would come back.

We took advantage of the great rates being offered to locals while travel is limited for overseas visitors - and loved it. Fantastic service all round, great game drives (saw all of the big 5 and more), and delicious food. I’d highly recommend doing a bush walk while you are there.
