An epic stay
If you are going to splurge on a safari, you might as well do it right and visit Kapama. They get to know each guest and pamper you, but the amazing staff also give you time and space to do your thing. Whether you want a romantic retreat, epic family vacation or a friend’s get-away, Kapama is an awesome spot. It is where I’ll take all my visitors who make the long journey to Southern Africa to come see me.

We stayed here for our honeymoon. Words cannot describe how we feel about Kapama River Lodge. This place is unbelievable. I’ve stayed at many 5* hotels, but this lodge is far more superior than any of them. The team are AMAZING, Azaria and Milton, our ranger and tracker were unbelievable and so committed to help us track down what we wanted. Kulani the waiter was an absolute delight. Not a single day did I ever see him not smiling. The housekeeping team would make the rooms up three times a day. For our first night, they even got a hot bubble bath ready for my wife before we got back from dinner. To top it all off, the food is outstanding. I have never tasted food at any hotel, lodge or boutique this good, ever. Over our 4 days we were stuffed. We’ve never been offered so much food before and there’s a LOT of variety. We felt sad to leave as it felt we were leaving our family behind. All in all, if you’re doing a safari, and have any doubt on where to go or stay, choose Kapama. They will do absolutely everything they can to make your stay with them as good as it can get.

Everything was amazing. The food was delicious, staff friendly and patient. The most outstanding part of our trip was the game drives with our game ranger Edwin and tracker Sipho. They were the biggest hit with my kids and we will be returning just because of them.
