Kapama River Lodge, Hoedspruit
Best place in Kruger Park
Rakesh, us3 night family trip
Kapama River Lodge, Hoedspruit
Overall the experience at Kapama was great. Would recommend to family and friends. It was a bargain for the money. Food and excursions were spot on and the premises were lovely to be on. My only trivial critique would be the lack fastidious service and some of the staff were both very friendly and accommodating while some members were a bit lackidazical. But I think that was situational.

Relaxing and confortable
It's the second time I stay in Kapama and it was fantastic. The activities are amazing (2 safaris a day) and it's very relaxing to have everything ready for you when you get there. I would recommend!

Good hotel and service. Lousy wi-fi. Spa rooms over priced as you cannot use the Spa pool.

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.
