Kapama Karula 5 star premium grading

We are thrilled to announce that Kapama Karula, the flag-ship luxury safari lodge in Kapama Private Game Reserve, the Greater Kruger National Park, has once again been awarded the prestigious 5-star Premium status. Only a handful of luxury properties in South Africa are awarded this honour. After two very turbulent and disruptive years, with the tourism industry taking such a hard knock, it truly was a very proud moment for the incredible team at Kapama Karula to once again be recognized for their commitment and hard work in delivering exceptional service which Kapama is renowned for.

The 5-Star Premium grading status was implemented to enhance the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa’s (TGCSA) grading standards.  Reserved for the most luxurious product offerings in South Africa, this aspirational level allows the TGSCA to recognise establishments that epitomise the highest levels of world-class luxury in both unique product quality and service going above and beyond other 5-star properties.

Ms Nelisiwe Yengwa (National Quality Assessment Manager) and Rethabile Lebethe, Provincial Quality Assurance Specialist from TGCSA, presented Theresa Cronje – Kapama Karula Lodge Manager and GM, Christiaan Basson, with the award in a handover ceremony on 18th February.

It’s an honour and a privilege to once again be recognised for this prestigious accolade. I congratulate the entire team at Kapama Karula for continuously and meticulously delivering outstanding service year after year. We look forward to bestowing this exceptional level of quality and service onto all future Kapama Karula guests”

Exquisite fine dining, impeccable guest service, exceptional guiding from qualified guides and assistant guides, a world-class award-winning luxury spa and wellness centre, as well as the direct fly-in option to Kapama Game Reserve via Kapama’s PC-12 Pilatus aircraft all, contributed towards achieving this prestigious award for the second year in a row.
