Pros and Cons
  • Aside from game drives and bush walks, elephant back and balloon safaris are offered
  • Several luxury lodges with different styles and atmosphere
  • Excellent wellness centre
  • Expensive packages and no self-drive option
  • Less authentic experience than in larger eco-systems


All major safari animals are present in Kapama, including the Big Five. The reserve is a former cattle ranch and has been re-stocked with animals that would have previously occurred here naturally. It is fully fenced and isn’t part of a greater ecosystem, which takes away some of the wilderness appeal.
More about Kapama's wildlife


Kapama's habitat consists of savanna woodland, grassland and riverine bush. Several waterholes and dams provide water throughout the year.
