16 Reviews on Kapama Karula

Hi there, Gwalagwala is an absolute fabulous stay especially if you like to experience the bush to its fullest. We were welcomed by Roxy and Nardia who spoilt us rotten with their drinks and chats. Nardia especially a thumbs up. Collen was a great companion with regards to the bush. The first game drive in the car was fantastic and we could ask questions and received loads of information. The bush walk the next day was a bit long for my parents who joined us, but nevertheless, wonderful to experience. The game drive in the morning was the best with the spotting of the cheetah, lions and herd of lions. A excellent place to go to and thank you to Dorian and Ann for their quick responses via email!

Accommodations are most comfortable and convenient; meals( food and atmosphere) were excellent; big 5 were there (4/5 on day one in pm,and 5/5 on day 2 in am); owners and personnel are fantastic. We have superb souvenirs from our trip to SA, but GwalaGwala is the best!

We had an excellent time with the people at GwalaGwala. The service was superb and exceeded our expectations. We are planning on returning. Thanks to everyone at GwalaGwala for making Anna's first experience in South Africa one that she will never forget.

We stayed at Gwalagwala for 2 nights in Feb. We were delighted with every aspect of our stay. We arrived there, to be welcomed by Anne and Frank, who showed us to our accommodation, which we where more than happy with. Our tent was immaculate, and furnished to a very high standard, the victorian bath was an unexpected treat! The big five game drives we were taken on where superb, we spotted the big 5 on both of our drives. The food that we where given during our stay was exceptional, and the company of Anne and her Husband was enjoyable. Would recommend this as a good value for money place to stay.
