Enjoy the ultimate Big 5 safari experience staying in luxury tented accommodation at Kapama Buffalo Camp, which is one of four exclusive properties on a 13 000-hectare private game reserve. This wildly popular 5-day luxury tented safari tour takes you to the heart of the safari capital of South Africa and promises outstanding wildlife sightings, prolific birdlife and romantic old-world charm.

Kapama is a fenced private game reserve that lies nestled between the Blyde River Valley and Kruger National Park; located adjacent to the famous Greater Kruger and close to Hoedspruit. Kapama was originally established as a cattle farm but today is one of the most popular ecotourism destinations in the northern region of South Africa.



 10 luxury safari tents, sleeping up to 20 guests

Kapama Buffalo Camp is the latest in Afro-chic glamping with luxurious tented accommodation situated on a lush riverbank lined with tall indigenous trees. Located in Kapama Private Game Reserve, guests have access to 13 000 hectares of pristine bushveld that falls within the Greater Kruger National Park.

The modern eco-camp exudes by-gone safari luxury, with each ensuite deluxe safari tent is air-conditioned and fully-equipped for comfort and convenience. Perched on a wooden deck with stilts, the tented accommodation is built using natural stone and wood with modern décor accents of burnt red and gold. Luxury features include a Nespresso machine and mini-bar, and heated under-blankets for chilly evenings.

A wooden walkway connects the luxury safari tents to the main lodge which is illuminated by glowing oil lanterns at night. A cosy lounge under a thatch roof is the perfect retreat after an exciting Big 5 game drive, or you can lounge around an elevated rim-flow pool and call for refreshments from the Buffalo Bar. Meals are served on the deck overlooking the river or dining under the stars at a rustic outdoor boma. You can also enjoy a decadent pamper session at Kapama’s Wellness Centre which is located at Kapama River Lodge.

No children under the age of 12 years allowed at Kapama Buffalo Camp.
