Welcome to Kapama Private Game Reserve
With four luxury lodges and the Big Five in residence (as well as occasional passing wild dogs and great birding), 13,000-hectare Kapama gets all of the important things right. Unlike most other private reserves, which constitute a patchwork of privately owned landholdings, Kapama is unusual in that it's the preserve of just one family, who have added to the reserve over the years since its establishment in 1986. What that means in practice is that, unlike some of the other private reserves, your safari drive can take you anywhere in the reserve, rather than being limited to just one private concession.
The same family also runs the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre on the reserve's southern boundary.
