Set on the banks of the Klaserie river which flows throughout the year, the luxury tents and exclusive suites that make up Kapama Karula – "the place of peace" – are in every way true to their name. The river glides smoothly forming sparkling pools that attract smaller riverine animals and a myriad of birds in every season. The new lounge, dining room, bar, pool and pool deck as well as other guest entertainment areas will impress the best of connoisseurs. All of course with unrestricted views onto the Klaserie river.
Kapama Karula has five superior suites, each exquisitely decorated and with generous private space. These suites measure 130 m² each, with an opulent en-suite bathroom featuring indoor and outdoor showers, his and hers basins, and a bath. Standard in each superior suite is a minibar stocked with a selection of fine wines and champagne, a Nespresso coffee machine, a lock-up safe, an international adaptor, a Wi-Fi connection and an iPod docking station. For guest comfort and convenience, each suite has a telephone, overhead fan and air conditioning, as well as a gas-heated fireplace for cool winter nights. The superior suites are wrapped by glass sliding doors, which enable seamless views over the Klaserie River. Each suite also has its own outside deck area, with a full-size heated swimming pool and sun loungers for relaxation.
Two of the superior suites, each measuring 170 m², are purpose-built for families. These family suites have an open-plan living room, replete with fireplace, which flows into the master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom also leads off the living room and can be accessed through an interleading door or its own entrance. This children’s bedroom is also en suite and is equipped with a flat-screen TV, selection of movies and a Wii game console. All other amenities standard to the superior suites are included – from well-stocked minibars including a selection of wines and champagne, to Nespresso coffee machines, air conditioning, overhead fans, telephones, Wi-Fi and an iPod docking station. Each family suite also has a private outside deck and a large swimming pool, which is heated in the chillier months for year-round swimming.
Modern whitewashed wood and vast sections of glass, complemented by a neutral colour palette, give Kapama Karula a contemporary African feel. The open-plan lounge and bar are spacious yet cosy, with skylights drawing in natural daylight and moonshine. Alternatively, enjoy the African sunshine on the outside wooden deck, with views over the meandering Klaserie River. Spotting leopard from the Kapama Karula dining room is not uncommon.
