Begin your new chapter in the company of mother nature and all her glory. Have peace of mind knowing that Kapama will take care of all your needs, creating the perfect setting for all your new memories.

A wedding on the African landscape is an experience like no other. Whether small or large scale, Kapama offers spectacular views and venues that will ensure that your vision for your wedding is met.

Your guests can enjoy the wild on a game drive while you and your bridal party have your photo session.

Let Kapama give you peace of mind by arranging décor, entertainment, a wedding cake and floral arrangements for the ceremony, as well as hairdressers and makeup artists for the bridal party. Give your nuptials an African flavour by adding the sweet sounds of an African choir to your celebrations.



Rest assured that Kapama will help you take care of all legal requirements for your wedding. While an ordained minister may perform the ceremony in the bush, the register needs to be signed under a permanent structure to legalise the marriage. Should specialist attention be required for the administration of your union, Kapama can source a wedding coordinator to ensure that this process is flawless. Our stellar team is ready to answer any questions you have regarding legalities.

Kapama offers a Honeymoon Special, which includes a complimentary bottle of fine South African wine for your safari honeymoon. Step into a fairy-tale and spend your honeymoon surrounded by the melodies of wild Africa.

As an additional add-on option to your special occasion, our Romantic Sleep-out is the perfect Honeymoon safari experience.

A raised platform with a giant four-poster bed swathed in billowing mosquito netting, Kapama’s Sleep-out platform is completely private, deep in the reserve, and incredibly romantic. Enjoy an uninterrupted view of the stars on your platform, encircled by golden lantern light.

The platform is completely safe and animal proof, and it is equipped with a full luxury bathroom. For additional peace of mind, Kapama supplies a two-way radio and cellular phone. After dawn, the ranger will be waiting for your call to return you safely to the lodge.

A team building experience in a safari setting is a sure way to breathe new life into your team.

“We offer three exciting adventures to choose from. These include: The Kapama Amazing Race, game capture participation, clay pigeon shooting and elephant interaction encounters.”


the kapama amazing race

Kapama Amazing Race

Teams are broken up into groups of 7 or 8 and given handheld GPS devices to navigate their way through the African bush on their game viewing vehicle.

The aim of the game is to reach as many checkpoints as possible in the 3 hours. With a map, tasks, questions, and a piggy bank, the teams must find their way to the finish line by answering the questions correctly and using their piggy bank to buy information and tools they might need along the way.

The GPS system also offers them the best routes to the finish line, but if they go over the speed limit or go too far, they will be fined.
Teams are given more ‘money’ to add to their piggy bank after completing each checkpoint’s challenges successfully.

This experience can be tailored to incorporate company-related questions into the activities. Although this team building is 3 hours long, you can tailor the time depending on availability.

game capture participation

game capture participation

Game capture, treating wounds, attaching anti-poaching tracking devices, or relocating animals is sometimes necessary at Kapama. These delicate events have limited availability. You can have your staff participate in this entire process, from the point when they are darted, to relocating, treating and releasing the animals back into the reserve.
