Kapama River Lodge

Private Game Reserve

Within the expansive Kapama reserve of 13 000 hectares of savanna and riverine forest lies Kapama River Lodge. Kapama Game Reserve is well known for its high density of big game. The suites are positioned along a bend of the seasonal Kapama River. The spacious rooms have stunning views over the reserve from private decks. Here you can sit with an ice cold drink and be fascinated by the sights and sounds of the African bush!

The Spa Suites are our favorite rooms, these are positioned a little way from the lodge to ensure additional privacy and proximity to the Spa. Expansive glass doors and frame-less windows allow unobstructed bush views, including from the bathroom. Located with the Spa Suites, the Family Suites have triple balconies as well as spacious bedrooms including a lounge area that can accommodate an additional two beds for children.

Kapama River Lodge also has two Royal Suites that offer substantial space and include a separate lounge and extended balcony furnished with recliner couches. The en-suite bathroom has a bath and a dual shower overlooking the surrounding bush.

The lodge offers different dining venues. Evening meals are often enjoyed seated around a roaring fire in the enclosed boma, while romantic dining is set in the dry riverbed under a star-studded sky! The highlight of Kapama River Lodge for many guests is the stunning Wellness Center. A sophisticated Spa facility which includes 6 gorgeous treatment rooms and a stunning lap pool overlooking the riverbed.

Twice-daily game drives with a qualified and passionate ranger and expert tracker reveal Africa’s big game. You can expect to encounter a diverse range of animals on open 4×4 vehicles and birding enthusiasts will be delighted.
