Kapama Karula

Set on the banks of the Klaserie river which flows throughout the year, the two luxury tents and five superior suites that make up Kapama Karula - “the place of peace” - are in every way true to their name. The river glides smoothly forming sparkling pools that attract smaller riverine animals and a myriad of birds in every season

Lounge and Bar

Modern whitewashed wood and vast sections of glass, complemented by a neutral colour palette, give Kapama Karula a contemporary African feel. The open-plan lounge and bar are spacious yet cosy, with skylights drawing in natural daylight and moonshine. Alternatively, enjoy the African sunshine on the outside wooden deck, with views over the meandering Klaserie River. Spotting leopard from the Kapama Karula dining room is not uncommon.

Library

A new addition to Kapama Karula, the multipurpose library is equipped with audiovisual equipment. Two Internet stations with complimentary Wi-Fi are available to lodge guests wanting to connect to home. A romantic fireside dinner for two can be enjoyed in the library, with prior arrangement.

Beyond Luxury

With its light, airy, open spaces and views from every angle, Karula is truly the pride of Kapama as our flagship lodge. Effortlessly elegant and stylish, Karula will steal the breath of even the most seasoned traveller.

Superior Villas

rooms 10 • size: 90m2
Our superior villas feature wrap-around glass sliding doors that open onto an outside deck area with stunning views of the Klaserie River.

Enjoy something refreshing from your personal minibar while lazing around in your own heated pool or relaxing on the patio. After a day in the bush, you can take a spectacular shower under the stars in your outdoor shower or, if the weather’s a bit chillier, cuddle up in your opulent villa while sipping champagne or any of our selection of fine wines available to you. Air con in the suites ensures you’ll always be comfortable and your personal Nespresso coffee machine means you can wake up to the smell of your favourite roast, warm and aromatic.

For peace of mind, we’ve provided a lock-up safe for your valuables, and the suites are equipped with tech creature comforts – wi-fi, an iPod docking station and international adapters for your convenience.



Superior Family Villas

rooms 2 • size: 170m2
Karula’s superior family villas have expansive open-plan living rooms.. Grab yourself something to drink from the minibar, or choose something more indulgent from our selection of fine wines and champagne. Open the floor-to-ceiling doors and you can step out onto your private deck, then take a dip in your heated swimming pool or relax in a lounger as you take in the views.

Each bedroom is en-suite and spacious enough to offer privacy. If you’re travelling with the kids, you’ll be glad to know the second bedroom is equipped with a flat-screen TV, a selection of movies and a Wii game console. Air con in the suites ensures you’ll always be comfortable and your personal Nespresso coffee machine means you can wake up to the smell of your favourite roast, warm and aromatic.
