Kapama Private Game Reserve features a selection of luxury lodges and camps, each offering opulent accommodations and blending modern comforts with African elegance. Guests can expect spacious suites or villas, private decks, and panoramic views of the surrounding bushveld.

Kapama River Lodge (2 nights)

The largest of the Kapama Private Game Reserve camps, River Lodge’s wide, open spaces and airy design will be a constant reminder that you’re sleeping under the African sky.

Besides the luxury five-star accommodation, River Lodge is more festive and social than the game reserve's smaller, quieter camps, which is why young couples and groups of friends are often among their guests.

Escape to a place away from time, and indulge in one of the finest safari lodges near the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The intimate Buffalo Camp also has a lounge, nestled under a vaulted, thatched roof, making it the perfect place to sink into a comfortable sofa for a spot of birdwatching - with a refreshing cocktail in hand, of course.
