All 15 suites at Southern Camp have full en-suite bathrooms with picture windows to enjoy the surrounding scenery and birdlife. Air conditioning, minibars and tea and coffee stations are standard in all suites of this five-star safari accommodation. Private patios offer the opportunity to enjoy relaxing sundowners, while game watching at the same time. The ten 85 m2 Villas have their own private lap pool, inside and outside showers, large minibar, espresso machines and a romantic fireplace open to the bath and bedroom. 3 of the Villas have been designed with families in mind with a second connecting bedroom for the children with its own bath, shower, double vanity and outside patio.

Enjoy the splendid vistas over the natural waterhole frequented by animals throughout the day, as you sip your favourite cocktail from the wooden deck around the welcoming rim-flow swimming pool or in the elegantly decorated lounge. Breakfast and lunch are served in the elegant, open-sided dining room, which offers an enchanting dining experience. Superb gourmet meals are served in the main dining room or in the outside boma under a star-studded sky.

Décor is contemporary, understated and inspired by surrounding nature. The wine cellar is a focal point in the room, with the fine South Africa estate collection showcased behind frameless glass. The traditional outdoor boma is the favoured setting for dinner, weather permitting. Illuminated by firelight and starry skies, diners will enjoy diverse and tasteful cuisine conjured by chefs right before them. Open fires are often used for cooking too, in true African style.

Guests enjoy two game drives daily with experienced and qualified ranger and tracker teams. The game drives are conducted within the Big 5 Kapama Private Game Reserve ensuring guests have a superb safari experience
