Situated deep in the north of South Africa in the Limpopo province, Kapama Buffalo Camp is set in Kapama Private Game Reserve which boasts 13 000 hectares of unspoilt wilderness and wildlife bordering on the famous Kruger National Park. This is the place to come for a true African safari experience of a lifetime: to see the Big Five lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, and leopard up close.
Set amongst trees next to a seasonal river, Kapama Buffalo camps offers 10 supremely luxurious tents, interlinked by wooden walkways. Harking back to a romantic bygone era, the tent suites are decorated with African design elements and beds are made with the crispest white linen.
Depart for a game drive on an open vehicle with your ranger to spot over 40 mammal species, and for bird lovers there are 350 types calling Kapama home. If you’re keen for a unique African wildlife experience from a different perspective, why not opt for a bush walk with a trained ranger. Or, for the ride of your life, you can do an elephant-back safari.
After so much adventure, it’s time for some well-deserved R&R. The Kapama Wellness Centre offers luxurious, African-inspired spa treatments. Relax afterwards in the lap pool there or head back to Kapama Buffalo Camp’s rim-flow pool overlooking the forest canopy.
The intimate lounge is the place to go for sundowners at the Buffalo Bar, with its light and airy atmosphere. Oil lanterns are lit on the walkways as night falls, and it’s time to indulge in the tastes of Africa. The outdoor boma, set around a roaring fire, is where you’ll enjoy a sumptuous feast, with the sounds of nocturnal predators providing the soundtrack.
Head back to your suite and enjoy a leisurely soak in your vast freestanding bathtub, or sit on your private balcony overlooking the trees and river below. The supreme comfort and warming wooden accents are sure to provide a perfect night’s rest.
Kapama Buffalo Camp’s superior, individualised service is the epitome of the warm heart of Africa, and every visitor will experience personalised attention at this intimate location.
