Name: Kapama Karula
Set on the banks of the perennial Klaserie River is the flagship five-star lodge of Kapama Game Reserve: Kapama Karula. Meaning "place of peace", this ultra-luxurious and prestigious lodge exudes calmness and depicts the pinnacle of elegant safari accommodation, with wraparound views of the African bush enhancing the sense of tranquillity at this exclusive safari lodge.
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 Klaserie River. Spotting leopard from the Kapama Karula dining room is not uncommon.
The multipurpose library is equipped with audio-visual equipment and two Internet stations with complimentary Wi-Fi for lodge guests wanting to connect to home. A romantic fireside dinner for two can be enjoyed in the library, with prior arrangement.
The luxury spa offers a range of health and beauty treatments in four deluxe treatment rooms. For a body workout, the fitness centre is equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and weight-lifting equipment, or you can run or walk on the treadmill or cycle on the Wattbike.
After working up a sweat, visit the steam room, or relax in the pool. You can also browse through the curio shop for those special gifts to take home. Then head out on an exciting game drive.

My husband has always wanted to do a safari vacation and I have always delayed it, but what an amazing vacation this was for the entire family (yes, hubby was right). From Greg and Roy, our ranger and tracker, to Faith and Reason (cook and waiter), to the wonderful staff at the spa (best massage and facial ever), to the beautiful rooms we were in, this was a perfect way to experience a safari. Greg and Roy never gave up to show us the Big 5, especially the elusive leopard, and we ended up seeing 4 leopards, including a baby one. I just can’t praise those guys enough. Plus, the food and accommodations were great. I have absolutely no complaints, but plenty of praise for all. I would definitely recommend a Kampala Karula safari, and I would go there again and again.
“One of the best travel experiences I’ve ever had”
The accommodations might have been the best I’ve ever experienced. Service was incredible. Food was fantastic. The safari rides were unbelievable. Our guide, Greg, was fantastic with our kids, being flexible with our schedule, educated us, etc. Easily one of the best vacations we’ve had.
