Visit the Kapama Reserve This Spring.
Buffalo Camp has been completely rebuilt, two new large properties have been incorporated into the Kapama Reserve, Southern Camp opened in December 2011 and then, January 2012, Karula was destroyed in severe floods.
The good news is that Karula has been rebuilt, now comprising of 5 Superior Suites, 5 Suites and for the daring, two tents. We also jumped at the opportunity to include a classy library to the facilities.
Spring is the time when everything comes alive in the bush and at Kapama, it is no different, with all the hard work from the staff of the past two years now also coming alive.
Kapama Buffalo Camp
During the winter of 2011, Kapama Buffalo Camp was closed for far more than just a refurbishment. The entire camps tents were demolished and ten new tented accommodation structures were erected.
Kapama Continues To Grow The Reserve.
During September 2011 an adjacent property known as Hongonyi was acquired by Kapama and the process of incorporating this reserve into Kapama was initiated.
Kapama Southern Camp.
In a record time of four months, a new Southern Camp was borne on the Kapama Private Game Reserve. The aim was to provide some guests with a smaller more intimate option to Kapama River Lodge.
Severe Floods Hit Kapama.
It is quite ironic that the very water we depend on for survival can sometimes become such a destructive force that you can just watch in awe as tiny trickles of water become raging torrents and in its wake leave behind total devastation and destruction.
Kapama Karula Rebuilt
All river facing tents were damaged beyond repair in the floods. After careful consideration, we decided not to rebuild the original tents but to rather replace the original tents with a suite that resembled the very popular Superior Suites.
It is often said that time flies when you’re having fun. Oh, my word how these years have flown. Watch this space, until we meet again to update you on more of our new developments and exciting times at Kapama.
