SPIRIT OF AFRICA
The largest of the Kapama Private Game Reserve camps, River Lodge’s wide, open spaces and airy design are a constant reminder that you’re sleeping under the African sky. Besides the luxury five-star accommodation, River Lodge is more festive and social than our smaller, quieter camps, which is why young couples and groups of friends are often among our guests. Escape to a place away from time, and indulge in one of the finest safari lodges near the Kruger National Park, South Africa.
Relax beside a roaring fire in our African themed lounge or stroll over to River bar for a cocktail to sip alongside the sparkling rim-flow pool, all the while keeping an eye out for thirsty elephants taking a sedate stroll to the nearby watering hole.
For something more indulgent, make your way to the new 12m x 12m pool & cocktail bar. Whether it is a craft gin or classic cocktail in hand, relax on a poolside lounger, or escape the South African sun under a shaded alcove, as you take in the sounds of nature around you.
BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER
Explore and enjoy our authentic African cuisine around a roaring fire in the open-sided thatch Rhino Boma or the new dining experience Xitsumbeni. In this lavish and expansive dining area, guests can enjoy breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Xitsumbeni has its own bar with numerous lounge areas and fireplaces. With two large firepits, guests can star gaze while enjoying pre-dinner cocktails. Floor to ceiling glass stack doors open the lounge up to the surrounding bushveld where the sounds of nature can be enjoyed.
All dietary requirements are easily catered for.
Set in a dry riverbed in front of the lodge, dine under a star-studded African night sky.
On request, Kapama River Lodge can offer kosher meals. For information on our kosher meals email our reservations team and they will be happy to assist.
Our illustrious wine cellar is stocked with over 600 of the finest South African wines.
