Construction on Southern Camp was halted when Kapama’s flagship lodge, Kapama Karula, was destroyed by floods in 2012. With Kapama Karula rebuilt, renovation and construction at Southern Camp resumed and was completed in December 2013.
In total, 10 new luxury suites were built, three of which are family suites. In addition, a new reception area, curio shop, library and restrooms were also added to raise Southern Camp to true luxury lodge status, alongside Kapama Karula.
Southern Camp is thatched and combines modern contemporary elements with traditional bush-style architecture. The luxury suites each have large lap pools, fireplaces and inside and outside showers, and are equipped with minibars and Nespresso machines.
The three family units have interleading bedrooms and private outdoor decks. They are also equipped with televisions, PlayStations and a movie selection to keep younger children entertained.
Southern Camp, located in the south of the reserve, gives guests easy access to all areas of the reserve without the need for a long drive.
