Kapama Karula

Courtyard at Kapama Karula


Set on the banks of the perennial Klaserie River, Karula is small, intimate and luxurious.

Game drives & Big Five

Game drives and walks follow the established format, with numbers limited in vehicles to enhance privacy and reflect the exclusivity of the lodge.

Birding at Kapama Karula


The Klaserie River glides smoothly through the camp and is an attraction to the Big Five, forming sparkling pools that also draw in smaller riverine animals and a myriad of birds in every season, making it a birders’ paradise.

Luxurious Karula suites

Huge, well-appointed suites

All accommodation is spacious and en-suite. Five superior suites include two designed for families. All have indoor and outdoor showers, dual basins, and a bath. Each has a telephone, overhead fans, air- conditioning, and a gas-heated fireplace for cool winter nights.

Private pools

Each suite has a private outside deck with a heated swimming pool and sun loungers for relaxation.

Karula Superior Suite lap pool


Two superior suites have more space and huge lap pools on the deck.

Kapama Karula tented suite


Two luxury Meru-style tents make up this “place of peace”. These are similar to the suites but do not have a plunge pool.

Modern architecture at Kapama Karula


The main area – lounge, bar and library – at Karula is modern, with whitewashed wood, expanses of glass, and a neutral decor palette creating a contemporary African feel. Spotting leopard from the dining room is not uncommon. The wooden deck gives views over the meandering Klaserie River.

Kapama Karula boma


In the evening, meals are served in the boma, or you can take a romantic fireside dinner in the library.

Kapama Karula spa

Fabulous spa

Karula has an elegant, luxurious spa offering a full range of treatments.

Kapama romantic sleepout deck

Romantic sleepout

Kapama offers a sleep-out platform with a difference (at a premium). A five-course dinner is served to you by a personal chef at an intimate table for two. You can then retreat to your outsize double bed with billowing mosquito nets and a view over a waterhole to observe the goings-on of the night. A ranger is on standby by radio.
