A safari holiday in one of the top end Kruger Park safari lodges simply must start with a few days in Kapama Karula, the flagship lodge for the private Kapama Game Reserve. This luxury safari accommodation has been carefully built on the banks of the perennial Klaserie River and with a name that means ‘place of peace’, Kapama Karula is definitely one of the most secluded and tranquil safari camps you will find in the Greater Kruger region.
Glass doors and huge decks create a sense of continuous light and air, the flow of the wilderness in and out of the camp, a sensory aura of delight. This prestigious camp offers 12 generous suites designed space, designer comfort and private heated pools, large decks and wonderful use of glass doors to let in the greenery outside. Two of these bush chalets have been created for families on safari because family trips to Africa promote close bonding and fun in the biggest classroom on the planet.
Enjoy the main camp facilities where you will make new friends for life – the open plan dining area and lounge, the bar and the world class award winning Karula Spa & Wellness Centre where guests can keep fit, have a massage or treat their skin to some therapy. Find time to pamper between Big 5 game drives into the reserve to find all manner of game, trees, plants and tiny creatures too.
Kapama Karula is one of 5 distinct safari lodges in the privately owned Kapama Reserve adjoining Kruger National Park. The “rooms” are really mini villas reminiscent of those in a fancy magazine and they feature king size beds, deep bathtubs and showers, ultra-deluxe sitting areas and personal lap pools.
Gracious staff notice when guests need anything. Meals are all a special occasion and super delicious, incredibly gourmet and creative. Choose a good massage at the renowned Kapama Karula Spa & Wellness Centre and relax around the spa pool, open to all.
Game drives are so thrilling that the expert game rangers and their trackers are just as excited as their guests to find the animals. Make your dreams come true with a safari trip to Africa by choosing Kapama Karula, the flagship lodge for all the Kapama Game Reserve accommodation destinations.
With two safaris a day for 3 hours each guest soon forgets about just seeking the Big 5 – there is so much life and so much action in the wilderness. Some guests get to see huge breeding herds of elephants. Others notice the amazing lions, rhinos, buffalo, and leopards, plus giraffes, zebras, and many antelopes and reptiles. It simply cannot get better than this.
From the minute guests drive into Kapama Private Game Reserve and see Karula, they are hooked. Each villa has its own large deck and lap pool placed ingeniously in private seclusion. If you are an adventurous type, but you don’t like getting dirty, Karula is your kind of place. The safaris are excellent because guests see a wide diversity of wild animals from the comfort of the Kapama safari vehicle.
This is the flagship lodge for the Kapama Private Game Reserve – Kapama Karula is an exclusive safari lodge with a spa in the Greater Kruger National Park. Big 5 game viewing, excellent accommodation and prices. We love the family safari chalets so bring the kids to enjoy their own luxury space with swimming pool and games!
Discover an ambient luxury safari lodge sharing a boundary with Kruger National Park and offering guests one of the best safari experiences in Africa. It’s in big 5 country, Limpopo Province of sunny South Africa and it is the flagship safari lodge for the Kapama Private Game Reserve collection.
Not only is this landscape breath-taking but so too does the sheer ingenious lavish design of the lodge take your breath away. Guests remark on the feeling of peace that descends upon them when they arrive, and the feeling of coming home is overwhelming.

We recommend a package deal for your family safari that includes all meals, drinks and activities as well as transfers to the camp. We recommend a family safari at Kapama Karula in superior family villa accommodation made for space, fun and outside living. Glass walls and doors entice the kids outside to the refreshing swimming pool. Drinks in the minibar, fresh coffee and snacks, delightful outside showers, aircon, and the kids can watch the flat screen TV after excursions into the bush on open 4x4vehicles. Three is even a selection of games for kids to play on a console! It’s the perfect escape.
The other 10 premium villas are like 5-star hotel rooms in the bush, featuring shiny tiled floors, tall beams holding up a wooden roof and ceiling, and all interlinked with glass walls and doors. Whites, browns, creams, and muted greens off set the nature outside. It’s indeed restful and opulent all at once.
Who could not love indoor and outdoor showers, a huge bath with a view, a minibar stocked with a selection of fine wines and champagne, a Nespresso coffee machine, Wi-Fi and an iPod docking station. Add to this fans, air conditioning, and a gas-heated fireplace! Magical views over the Klaserie River from full-sized heated swimming pools, and sun loungers.
The highlight of your bushveld vacation is the wildlife viewing of course – two game drives a day and educational bush walks are the foundation of the Kapama Karula experience. Guests can chill out at the award-winning spa between activities and indulge in massages, skin therapies and fitness centre accessories to work off all that amazing food! Buy a gift in the curio shop and read a book in the lounge.
