    The safari drives were simply excellent. Our ranger, Michael, was truly passionate and dedicated to the well-being of the ecosystem.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Excellent game drives and service. Staff are great. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. However, WiFi doesn’t work in the room and the food is average. Also, you can’t make local phone calls using the phone in the room. You’ll have to go to the lobby and ask the front desk to make the calls for you. Overall, I’d still recommend this place :).

    Outstanding

    Everything was amazing. The food was delicious, staff friendly and patient. The most outstanding part of our trip was the game drives with our game ranger Edwin and tracker Sipho. They were the biggest hit with my kids and we will be returning just because of them.

    Not happy

    I was very disappointed by the room and the cleaning service, I expected better. The turndown was also a disappointment as they did not even go extra mile for my birthday yet we paid extra change for it. Our bed was as if it was made by a 9 year old baby, the room was dirty throughout our stay yet the cleaner came back very day. The only thing we enjoyed was the restaurant and game drive.

    Kapama was amazing! The staff were awesome and so helpful and worked to give their guests the best experience. The facility was clean and so beautiful. I’d highly recommend Kapama river lodge, we had an absolutely perfect stay and have nothing negative to review. I had indicated I was vegetarian upon booking under dietary restrictions, upon arrival the chef immediately sought me out to ask about food and every meal the kitchen management checked in to make sure I had enough to eat, despite there being plenty, they even made me my own veggie boards for lunch. All the stuff went above and beyond and were so friendly. The guide and tracker we had for the safari drives were so personable and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see, saw all big 5 and more. Wonderful
