Kapama Southern Camp
Safari Lodge in the Big 5 Kapama Reserve
Kapama Private Reserve, Hoedspruit Region, Limpopo
Kapama Private Game Reserve, with its portfolio of 4 luxury game lodges - occupies an area of 13 000 hectares of savannah and riverine forest boasting large amounts of wildlife. With 2 rivers flowing through the reserve – the Kapama and Klaserie – these serve as natural water sources for the resident wildlife which are regularly seen on your twice daily guided game drives!
Having 4 lodges of widely differing styles and price points, there’s pretty much a lodge to suit everyone at Kapama. Southern Camp is the latest addition to the portfolio, following the addition of a portion of land in the very south of the reserve (previously known as Hongonyi) They have upgraded the existing property, resulting in a stylish lodge that offers warm hospitality and friendly service in a tranquil setting.
Southern Camp is quite a large lodge with its 25 rooms – these are broken down into 15 Suites and the latest addition of 10 Villas (3 of which are Family Villas). The 15 standard Suites are simple and quite traditional en-suite rooms.
Southern Camp’s attractive lounge and pool areas are ideal places to relax with a good book or to soak up the surrounding scenery and game. The open sided thatched lounge is one of the best areas at Southern Camp –it’s simple yet quite elegant and welcoming with its travertine tiled floors and comfy sofas. Alternatively you can relax and enjoy a cold one on the pool loungers as the friendly barman is on duty all day to entice you with his tantalising cocktails! The food through the day is served buffet style - the evening meals are set with large tables, each headed by a ranger and you are allocated to sit with the ranger that took you on your game drives. The décor is contemporary, understated and inspired by surrounding nature – while the traditional outdoor boma is illuminated by firelight and starry skies enhancing the African atmosphere!
Throughout the day, it’s likely you will see wildlife around the lodge – nyala, antelope and vervet monkeys are frequent visitors, though seeing some of the bigger animals is also not uncommon! Twice-daily game drives are conducted by expert rangers and Shangaan trackers to ensure unforgettable wildlife encounters in the African bush! You can expect to see a diverse range of animal and bird species on the game drives including great sightings of the Big Five. For those birding enthusiasts there are approximately 350 species of birds recorded on the reserve!
