                  We had such an amazing time at Kapama River Lodge. The staff are lovely, the rooms and lodge are beautiful and our sightings of all the Big 5 up close made it well worth the extra price of staying at a private game reserve! Our rangers, John and Stanley, showed us elephants, buffalo, rhino, lions and leopards, all super close to the game truck. We also saw zebra, impala, giraffe, warthog, nyala, waterbuck, kudu, wildebeest, monkeys and hippo. I would definitely recommend staying at the Kapama River Lodge!

                  Beautiful setting and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Great to see the animals so close up.

                  We had an absolutely fabulous time. The overall service is top rate. The Ranger went beyond the call of duty and was very knowledgeable. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. The Lodge is beautifully situated, the rooms very clean and the beds really comfortable.The meals are exceptional and such a wide variety to choose from without repeating a dish.It was a fantastic few days and we will certainly recommend Kapama to our family and friends.
