african serenity


Kapama boasts a spa and wellness centre at both River Lodge and Kapama Karula. Rest, relaxation and rejuvenation are the order of the day. Indulge in the finest spa treatments, work out on the state-of-the-art fitness equipment, sweat it out in the steam room, or take a plunge in the pool. Karula Spa & Wellness also offers three unique, all-inclusive wellness experiences.


Considered to be one of the finest safari spas in Africa, a visit to River Lodge Spa is almost mandatory when visiting Kapama. This award-winning spa offers guests an exceptional level of luxury and pampering.

Lounge around the lap pool sipping on a choice of welcome drinks, before handing yourself over to one of our highly trained beauty therapists. Treatments are distinctly African in their flavour.
