Map of the Kapama Game Reserve

Kapama Game Reserve

Kapama Private Game Reserve occupies a vast area between the northern Drakensberg mountains and the Greater Kruger National Park.

Kapama has one of the lowest vehicle densities per hectare of any reserve in the entire region.

Their philosophy is based on a belief that Kapama should continually be looking at its potential and stretching itself into everything it can become for the benefit of the environment, those who visit the reserve and those who live and work within its boundaries.

Spectacular diversity

In the Limpopo Province the reserve covers an area of approximately 13000 hectares and comprises spectacular topographical and mammal and bird specie diversity. Characterised by rolling savannah grasslands and riverine forests the reserve supports no less than 42 mammal species and approximately 350 bird species. Amongst the mammal species is the ‘Big 5’ – Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino.

Apart from the fact that Kapama remains the largest single owner game reserve in the region, it is also situated adjacent to Eastgate Airport (Hoedspruit) and offers open vehicle transfers directly from Eastgate to any of the lodges at Kapama.
