River Lodge’s 64 spacious air-conditioned suites have uninterrupted views over the Big Five game reserve from private patios, and all feature full, en-suite bathrooms

Sweeping across 13,000 hectares (32,00 acres) of savannah and riverine forest, Kapama Private Game Reserve represents a piece of Africa as it used to be, with the mighty Drakensberg mountains to north and Kruger National Park to the east.

Vast herds of buffalo, elephant and antelope are resident on Kapama, along with plentiful predators, completing the Big Five, as well as some 40 other mammal species and 350 different types of birds.

Game drives and bush walks offer fascinating encounters with wildlife, but Kapama also offers guests unique African wildlife experiences such as a chance to interact with a herd of 16 habituated elephants out in the wild or visits to the Hoedspruit Centre for Endangered Species.
