Reminiscent of a traditional African safari camp, Kapama Buffalo Camp offers a unique and luxurious tented accommodation experience in Kapama Private Game Reserve. Built from stone and wood, this luxury game lodge has an old world atmosphere while featuring contemporary amenities. Set on stilted wooden decks overlooking an elevated riverbank, the 10 suites that comprise Buffalo Camp are set among tall shady trees, with a seasonal river below. Raised wooden walkways connect the tented safari rooms and lead to the main lodge on the riverbank, where during the dry season, antelope can be found using the river course as a natural pathway to search for grazing. Breakfast and lunch are served under a canopy of thatch, while dinner is usually enjoyed around a roaring open fire in the rustic outdoor boma (weather permitting). To cool off at Buffalo Camp, slip into the sleek, elevated rim-flow pool with views directly into the forest canopy. Afterwards, dry out on the loungers before taking a relaxing nap in the shade under wide canvas umbrellas.
The luxurious Tented Suites at Kapama Buffalo Camp feature wooden floors, a full en-suite bathroom, twin beds, white linens and African design bedspreads. Leather finishes and a stand-alone fan give the suites an aged African ambience. Fleecy throws and heated blankets ensure you will be warm even on cooler winter nights. Tented Suites also come with a well-stocked mini bar, Nespresso coffee machine and a safe.
Traditional African ambiance is extended to mealtimes with a la carte choices presented in heavy African cooking pots over a gentle flame. Hot & cold breakfast and lunch options are spread out across the servery, while dinner is prepared in the kitchen or cooked on the grill and served around an open fire in the rustic outdoor boma.
