Fantastic hospitality
We stayed 3 nights at the Buffalo Camp, an authentic lodge experience in a private, fenced in area of sole 20’000 hectares. We were picked up from the airport by Jeffrey, who was our guide / ranger for next 3 days. We were entirely satisfied from Pre-check in to check out, it’s hard to do better. The accommodation is luxury tents with all amenities including good showers and surprising water pressure. There is food being served all the time, best to skip some of the meals or you’ll gain a lot of weight little to no opportunity to burn calories. As you would expect, there are 2 game drives a day, Jeffrey and Mpho, out tracker, did a great job entertaining everyone amd were full of fascinating stories. We would go again, it is an amazing experience. I have been on game drives with more popping animal encounters but this really was very special in any other way.

Absolutely fantastic. The only down side (if it is a downside) is that there is simply too much great food to eat and little opportunity to work it off. 3 nights was enough and could safely get away with 2. Great break with no kids around.

Great getaway at Greater Kruger Reserve
It was a getaway for us, to view the Big 5 in Kruger. The accommodation was comfortable, and the best was the dinner at boma, where they served the best grilled meat. The game viewing was good, with our ranger providing us a good lot of information about the wildlife.

A Once in a Lifetime Experience
We had a great stay at Kapama Buffalo Camp. Expensive but you get a lot including three a la carte meals/day, beautiful tent (really a room on stilts), free mini bar and most importantly two three hour game safaris/day. Our guide Collen and spotter Vusi went out of their way so we could see the myriad of amazing animals in the private reserve. We were lucky to see all of the big five!

Great safari experience!
Amazing safari lodge experience. Great guides! Mostly okay staff. Small facility but highly recommended if one prefers a low key and intimate experience.
