Kapama River Lodge

Great for safari, but a bit Disney-esque
Game drives were top notch. That’s the main reason to go, and well worth it for that. Common areas are nice but it’s so big that it can’t help but feel corporate and most interactions, though all the staff are very professional, feel kind of forced and phony. Buffet food was plentiful and varied but not very exciting. More of a guided experience — decide for yourself whether that’s what you want or something more flexible.

Most amazing honeymoon ever!
Amazing staff, friendly, acompdatong, helpful experienced, first class all the way! The best place we have ever stayed at. We saw so many animals, babies, big 5 and so much more. Words can’t describe! Thank you.

Kapama River Lodge
Amazing luxurious lodge. And we saw the Big Five!
Kapama River Lodge is absolutely amazing. The service is top notch - from the ranger and tracker to the housekeeping and waiters. The lodge is luxurious, with a beautiful spa and several nice common areas to relax in between drives. The private game reserve gives you the ability to get up close to the animals. I can’t recommend Kapama highly enough. Book your trip now!

Very expensive. Not secluded, could hear traffic while on game drive, Did not see much wildlife. Room was 3-4 star. Not much view from my river lodge room. Wifi was slow and intermittent and only available in the reception lobby area. Good food.
