SPIRIT OF AFRICA

RIVER LODGE

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 the 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.
