Kapama Buffalo

Positioned high up in the trees and linked by wooden walkways, Kapama Buffalo Camp truly makes one feel as if they are sleeping up in a rather luxurious treehouse – surrounded only by pristine bushveld and the calls of the wild.

This luxury tented camp nestles in the private 13 000 hectare Kapama Game Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park. Offering a quiet and intimate setting, Kapama Buffalo Camp is much loved by couples who wish to unwind and enjoy the beauty of nature.

The combination of canvas, dark wood and leather in the suites blends seamlessly with the bushveld and the seasonal river below. Each luxurious tent is designed to ensure guest comfort, fitted with an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, heated blankets during the winter months, tea & coffee making facilities, a well stocked minibar, in-room safe and a small viewing deck. 

The main guest area is decked out with a comfortable lounge area, bar, dining area, outdoor boma, wine cellar, boutique shop, wellness center, complimentary Wi-Fi, business center and an elevated pool deck with rim-flow swimming pool. 

The dining experience is exceptional with an a la carte breakfast and lunch and dinners are served around an open fire under a canopy of stars. Kapama also offers kosher meals on request. 

Kapama Private Game Reserve is special because it not only offers a range of luxury accommodation options but an outstanding safari experience. The game reserve is home to over 40 different mammal species, including the sought after Big 5 – elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino. For bird lovers, Kapama is a bird watching paradise with an estimated 350 bird species. 

The nightly rate at Kapama Buffalo Camp includes your accommodation, meals, local and premium beverages and return transfers from Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport on scheduled flights. Activities on offer at Kapama include dawn and dusk open-vehicle game drives that are led by a team of expert guides and trackers, as well as bush walks, elephant interactions, hot air ballooning and romantic sleep-out experiences in the bush – a must when staying at Buffalo Camp.
