River Lodge At Kapama Private Game Reserve

4

This lodge epitomises modern African luxury on the riverbend of the seasonal Kapama River.

The main lodge at Kapama Private Game Reserve, Kapama River Lodge is also the largest game lodge in the Greater Kruger National Park area. The abundance of space means guests benefit from extensive facilities including a main pool, lounge and dining areas, a wine cellar and a stunning on-site spa with a pool looking over a nearby watering hole.

In keeping with the old-Africa vibe of the rest of the property, evening meals of traditional fare are served in the outdoor boma. For breakfast and lunch, you can dine in the cool shade at Siyatla, a purpose-built enclosed dining area. Romantic dinners can also be set up by the dry riverbed in front of the lodge for a meal beneath the canopy of stars.

Each of the Suites features air-conditioning and a private patio for views across the game reserve. If you like to mix a day of adventure with an evening of relaxation, there are Spa Suites close to the spa, offering additional privacy away from the lodge. Nearby, the Family Spa Suites provide extra space for up to two children while Royal Suites offer a more decadent experience with a separate lounge, extended balcony, dual showers and recliner couches.
