10/10 Exceptional

Kapama Southern is amazing! I loved everything about it - the Villa was beautiful, the animals roaming free, the food was delicious, but I especially I loved the people who worked there. Titus and Elliot were an amazing Driver/Tracker duo and made sure we got to see some amazing animals, including a leopard eating in a tree. They were always looking out for me and making sure I had everything I needed to have a great stay. And Nkateko always had my favorite tea at breakfast lunch and dinner. I highly recommend this property and upgrading to the Villa with pool. I also suggest you stay about 5 days to enjoy the game drives, but also so you can enjoy some of the experiences like the Elephant encounter, spa and hot air balloon ride.

Great experience at Kapama Southern Camp
Excellent stay at Kapama Southern Camp. The entire staff is friendly, helpful, and goes above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Game drives are excellent. The food is great. The lodge is small enough to feel intimate and relaxing. 5 star stay for sure.
