Kapama Private Game Reserve is an African Eden. Sweeping across 13 000 hectares of savannah and riverine forest, Kapama represents a piece of Africa as it used to be. With the mighty Drakensberg mountains in the distance and iconic Kruger National Park to the east, Kapama has distilled the finest wildlife safari offerings for the enjoyment of guests. As part of the Greater Kruger area, vast herds of buffalo, elephant, and antelope are resident on Kapama, along with plentiful predators. The iconic animals of Africa, the Big Five, are at home on Kapama, but so too are over 40 other mammal species and 350 different types of birds. The reserve is a slice of wilderness paradise far from the madding crowd; a place of renewal and reconnection with the natural world.
