In addition, on the 23rdMarch our President announced that as of 27thMarch 2020, South Africa will be on a Nationwide lockdown beginning with level 5.

Kapama Private Game Reserve’s Response Plan

As we find ourselves in a very difficult time that is affecting all corners of the globe, we completely understand that guests may feel uncomfortable about travelling and Kapama Private Game Reserve remains sensitive to these fears. A comprehensive review of our cleaning and sanitation procedures has been conducted with the COVID-19 outbreak (Coronavirus) in mind and Kapama has elevated its readiness to deal with this situation.  This was done to ensure the absolute peace of mind for our guests.

The elevation of our already stringent hygiene and cleaning protocols including our game drive vehicles, lodge suites and all guest facilities is our top priority.  We have dramatically increased the availability of hand sanitiser throughout all operations.

The daily disinfecting of all surfaces that could be touched by hand have been increased. Intensified inspections & cleaning reports have been implemented.

Key staff members have been identified and trained in all aspects of the COVID-19 by the steps put in place by the South African Health Department utilising the COVID-19 Hotline number: 0800 029 999.

We are advising all of our guests to please adhere to the below 3 essential principles.

  1. Regular washing of hands with soap and warm water for longer than 20 seconds
  2. Avoid coughing or sneezing without having covered your nose and mouth with either a tissue, handkerchief or upper sleeve of your clothing.
  3. Regular, extensive, vigorous use of hand sanitiser.
