My best Safari Experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 03 Jun 2024
The staff and Safari were exceptional. Everyone felt welcomed. They were not only great with the guest but with each other as a team.
Our group of 9 were always excited or the early morning Safari (even with the 5am walk up call)
Our guides made our experience even more spectacular- ( Thanks Hancho / Godi)

Had the most amazing experience at Kapama Buffalo Camp. Our guides - Thema and Kenneth - went the extra mile in ensuring we were able to see the Big 5 animals. The food was amazing and the service was perfect.

It’s hard to put in to words just how wonderful our experience at Kapama buffalo camp was. Most importantly, every single member of the team we encountered was warm, friendly, professional, and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience possible! The camp is beautiful - being smaller it has an intimate, charming feel, and we were able to get to know the other guests and the team which was lovely. The “tent” was amazing - immaculately clean, spacious, and the freestanding bath was very luxurious! The food was all absolutely delicious with plenty of choice - and there was always a very generous, regular supply on offer! We felt we really had the best of both worlds by staying at Buffalo Camp, as we enjoyed the peace and charm of a smaller setting, but the team were also kind enough to facilitate day trips for us to River Lodge to enjoy the facilities on offer there at the gym and spa - we couldn’t have asked for more! In terms of the game drives themselves, they were better than anything we could have imagined! Our guides Themba and Brighton were kind, professional, and incredibly knowledgeable, always happy to answer questions and full of fascinating information! They went above and beyond to give us incredible sightings and we are so grateful because those moments will stay with us for a lifetime! We saw all of the animals we had hoped to see, and plenty that we hadn’t expected too which was amazing! There were so many highlights but catching a nighttime stand-off between rhinos and lions was really unforgettable. I could not recommend Kapama buffalo lodge more highly and only wish we could go back!

The small lodge experience is unique. The tete a tete dinner with candles and logfire made it an unforgetable anniversary for us. I have kept and brought the protea bouquet home.
We saw the big 5s (with hyena, wild dogs, hippo thrown in) basically within 2 days.
