Guests at Kapama Karula Lodge on a South African safari can enjoy peaceful game viewing from their secluded tented safari accommodation and decks or at the Tree-House Pub and lounge, all of which overlook the Klaserie Riverside. There is also a feature swimming pool at the camp for refreshing dips in the heat of the day.

Game Drives and Bush Walks

On a morning game drive in Kapama Private Game Reserve expect an early wake up call before everyone gathers for a warming cup of tea or coffee and a snack before setting off. The big cats could still be up after a night of hunting or other large game including Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo may be seen. Along the way, enjoy sightings of creatures beginning to stir and colourful birds taking flight - the African bush is a treasure house of interesting flora and fauna. Refreshments are served on-board the Landrover before the drive back to Kapama Karula Lodge.

For afternoon game drives, visitors gather at 3.30pm for a sumptuous high tea before departure. Sundowners can be enjoyed en-route at a view site where guests can stretch their legs and watch the sun setting. Once everyone is back in the vehicle, the tracker will set up the spotlight for viewing of nocturnal animals. The game drive returns to the lodge in time for guests to freshen up before dinner.

Enjoy the thrilling closeness of the bush on a guided walk after breakfast. The ranger gives tremendous insight into the wonders of the plant kingdom, nature's medicine chest, and shows guests how to identify animals from their tracks and dung. Large game can be observed from a safe distance.

Kapama Karula Spa

Four luxurious spa treatment rooms, some of which may be configured to suit couples looking to spend some quality time together, are available at Karula Spa. Before and after treatments, guests can unwind in the built-in loungers and underwater jets of the spa pool, and the hydrotherapy area features an ice plunge and steam room.
