Why we Love Kapama Kruger

Kapama River Lodge is proud of its glorious Drakensberg Mountains backdrop and is one of the premium private game lodges in the Kruger National Park.

Tucked away in the serenity of a vast and awe-inspiring bushveld landscape, the River Lodge Spa spreads over 5 treatment rooms offering massages, body wraps, facials, steam treatments, milk baths and pampering for the guys too.

Bush walks take you deeper into nature with a talented game ranger who will show you animal tracks, medicinal plants, insects, birds and trees – and maybe even a surprising member of the Big 5!

Honeymoon couples love the romantic sleepout at Kapama high on a platform to view the sunset then spend the night listening to nature with only soft lantern lights.

Kruger National Park Safaris Kapama Lodge

Book a few unforgettable nights at Kapama River Lodge – a legendary luxury game lodge in the greater Kruger National Park area where we have the best Big 5 deals available that include all game drives, activities, luxury accommodation in earthy suites, and transfers. Safari enthusiasts book elephant safaris in this popular private wilderness concession. 

Business delegates come for customised wildlife safari packages including full use of the Kapama world-class media room/conference centre. Many visitors book all-inclusive special deals with meals, teas and coffees, two guided game drives per day and other thrilling activities.

We love the idea of a combo bush-break for adventurous tourists to Kruger who can add on a beach villa stay on the Mozambique mainland near Maputo or Vilanculos. The Bazaruto Archipelago promises some thrilling island ecstasy after the rawness of the bushveld – we customise safari/beach experiences with flights and transfers included.

So much character at Kapama River Lodge in the impressive African styled décor in sunset colours of burnished bronze, reds and golds. Relax around the sparkling swimming pool during the heat of those summery days or chill out at the cool thatched lounge and bar areas. Dine outdoors on the attractive deck overlooking the Kapama River or sip a cup of freshly brewed coffee while wild animals stroll along the boundary.
