Spa Safari – A perfect combination
Booking a holiday always takes significant thought. There are so many options available that it can be quite stressful trying to pick the perfect dream destination. Do you want a beach paradise setting, or do you opt for a cultural European city escape? Are you after a pure adrenaline rush, non-stop “Amazing Race” type of adventure, or do you want something a bit more relaxed and laid back, perhaps in a quiet countryside getaway? What about a spa resort where you can let professional therapists massage away the stresses of life to rejuvenate the mind and soul back to a moment of Zen.
All offer terrific benefits.
Then, there is an African Big 5 Safari. The type of luxurious 5 Star dream holiday that you have had on your bucket list since you first saw The Lion King. To be able to venture out in the sweeping bushveld, hoping to spot a lion or leopard stalking a prey. To see the gentle giant slowly making its way past you, swaying his trunk from side to side as you snap pictures off the back of an open-air game vehicle. Let us not forget about the mighty buffalo, wallowing in a mud bath, or having the privilege of seeing the endangered rhino grazing silently on the freshly drenched grass from the first summer rains.
There are so many options – how do you decide?
What if your decision could be simplified and you were able to combine the experiences of a Big 5 African bushveld safari adventure with top class spa treatments in one – but you were not sure how!
Kapama Private Game Reserve is here to help you make that decision easier!
Kapama Private Game Reserve situated in the Greater Kruger area not only has four 5-star luxury lodges but also houses two state-of-the-art Wellness Centres and Spas. Besides indulging in lush African inspired spa therapy treatments, as Kapama is a Big 5 Private Game Reserve, seeing lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino over a 2-day safari is very possible.
Let us introduce you to our two world-class luxury Spa Centres.
River Lodge Spa
Part of Kapama River Lodge and considered one of the finest safari spas in Africa, the River Lodge Spa, has six sumptuous treatment rooms in a setting surrounded by stillness and sweeping bushveld. Arranged around a generous central lap pool the spa evokes a sense of calm. The River Lodge Spa Suites are positioned a little way from the lodge to ensure additional privacy and proximity to the spa.
Highly trained and experienced beauty therapists offer the trendiest global body and beauty treatments with a uniquely African twist. Soak up the signature four-hour Marula Miracle Moments – which includes a body wrap, facial, massage and more – or opt for other enticingly named treatments such as the Kapama Pinotage Bliss, which uses vine-infused products, or the Marula Sensual Steam Treatment.
Alternatively, if you’d like to work up a sweat, the state-of-the-art mini-gym is fully equipped with both cardio and weight-lifting equipment.
After your treatment or body workout, take a swim or relax under bushveld skies. The pool overlooks a waterhole where elephants and buffalo often come to quench their thirst or wallow in the mud – their kind of African spa – allowing you to view them while relaxing in your own five-star spa! This kind of experience is almost priceless.
So what are you waiting for? If a luxurious Spa Safari holiday inspires your adventurous nature, let River Lodge Spa & Wellness Centre energise, inspire and uplift you as you relax under African skies.
Kapama Karula Spa
Kapama Karula, our ultra-luxurious and prestigious flagship lodge exudes calmness and depicts the pinnacle of elegant safari accommodation. As a recent winner in the Haute Grandeur Global Hotel & Spa Awards, Kapama Karula’s Spa & Wellness centre, truly offers peace in paradise.
Surrounded by glass, this stunning newly built spa has an intimate connection with the bushveld scenery. Impalas can often be seen grazing beyond the glistening glass. Every aspect of the spectacular design and décor invites you to pamper yourself.
With four deluxe treatment rooms and a range of revitalising health and beauty treatments, this spa uses only the finest quality products. You can choose between a half-day, full-day or spa therapy packages.
A firm favourite is the Special Elements of Africa Treatment, the ultimate rejuvenating and relaxation experience. Lying on a heated slab, you can enjoy a full body exfoliation and the warmth of heated oils and hot stones, after which the horizontal showerheads are opened to massage the body.
The Pinotage Bliss Experience is well – blissful. A detox-vine-body-wrap soothes after a gentle Pinotage body buff. A marula milk or moor bath is followed by hydrotherapy which invigorates the mind, while massage jets increases blood circulation and eases muscle tension. A scalp massage and a Kapama marble footprint ritual complete the experience.
How about a soothing and hydrating all-over Royal Rasul Treatment with your choice of mud or body butter application? For a more exhilarating experience try the Vichy Shower or waterfall massage.
If all of the above sounds enticing and exhilarating, Kapama Karula Spa & Wellness Centre is the perfect choice to melt away your stress and submerge yourself in an African dream adventure.
Buffalo & Southern Camp
If your accommodation needs and preferences are catered more for our luxurious Buffalo tented camp, or our family-friendly Southern Camp, the newest addition to Kapama Private Game Reserve, no need to fear. Although these two camps do not have a spa within walking distance, either River Lodger or Karula Spa is very easily accessible via a short drive on an open-air game vehicle. Each Lodge will be more than happy to accommodate your needs.
