Kapama Private Game Reserve

Situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, the Kapama Private Game Reserve occupies a vast area between South Africa’s northern Drakensberg Mountains and the Greater Kruger National Park.

Kapama Private Game Reserve comprises 13 000 hectares of sweeping wilderness. Extending from the R40 road in the west to the boundary with Thornybush Reserve in the east, and from the Eastgate Airport road in the north to Klaserie Dam in the south, the reserve hosts teeming wildlife and an enormous variety of African wildlife species that roam the area.  Along with the Kapama River, the languid Klaserie River also flows through the reserve.  These serve as natural water sources for the resident wildlife, which are regularly seen on guided game drives. 


The area is renowned for its prolific and diverse wildlife.  Kapama Private Game Reserve is home to over 40 different mammal species, including the most dangerous Big Five of elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros.  Approximately 350 bird species and a myriad smaller species can also be seen here in their natural environment.  Twice-daily game drives through the reserve, accompanied by expert guides and trackers, will ensure unforgettable wildlife encounters in the African bush.
