Kapama has received record rainfall for 2014 - even more than during the floods of 2012, but without serious damage to the reserve or property. This means that wildlife have abundant vegetation to carry them through winter and a higher birth rate is expected, with a resultant increase in population numbers across all animal species.
Game viewing is already spectacular, with record leopard sightings - up to five sightings in a single day, as well as leopard cubs near River Lodge. The pack of 15 wild dogs that move in and out of the reserve have also been seen regularly, along with sightings of rare pangolin. Add to this hyena pups, lion cubs and cheetah sightings, all making game viewing at Kapama extraordinary.
