Kapama Private Game Reserve is located on 12 000 hectares of bushveld populated by a variety of different wildlife species including the “Big Five”. Built in the theme of an East African safari camp, Buffalo Camp features 8 luxury canvas tents set on stilts overlooking a seasonal river. Each tent has en suite facilities and is connected to the other tents and main lodge area by wooden walkways high above the riverbed. The main lodge features a thatched bar, indoor and patio dining areas, lounge, swimming pool and campfire area that is lit up at night by lanterns. Guided bush walks and game drives are offered daily. Kapama Reserve hosts the world renowned Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, and guests are invited to experience the privilege of viewing rare, endangered species such as King Cheetah and Wild Dog at close range.
Romantic sleep-out on Kapama Private Game Reserve
The Kapama Romantic Sleep-out offers a million-star overnight experience. Sleeping in the open air on the reserve, elevated high above the ground under the African night sky, is a uniquely romantic experience. A raised platform is evocatively furnished with an oversized bed festooned in white linen and billowing mosquito netting. It’s completely safe, while being surrounded by only wilderness and wildlife. The experience is guaranteed to take your breath away.
You’ll arrive before sunset to watch the changing colours of evening and sip a sundowner. The African bush fairytale continues with a five-course dinner served to you by a personal chef at an intimate table for two on the platform. Or you can enjoy dinner at the lodge and arrive at your romantic sleep-out venue afterwards. By night, it will be encircled by a ring of golden lantern light.
The platform and luxury bathroom underneath are both animalproof, but both a two-way radio and cellular phone are supplied for additional peace of mind. With a flush toilet, shower and his and hers basins, the bathroom has all comforts catered for.
Your private night in the African bush continues until after dawn, when you will call your ranger by radio to transfer you back to your lodge. An appointed pick-up time may also be arranged in advance.
You will have private dinner and a bottle of wine or sparkling wine.
