Kapama Private Game Reserve Travel Guide

Map of Kapama Game Reserve

Kapama Private Game Reserve occupies a vast area between the northern Drakensberg mountains and the Greater Kruger National Park. It is the largest single-owner game reserve in the region, and is perfectly situated to receive guests flying into Eastgate Airport (Hoedspruit). Kapama has all the Big Five African animals in abundance. 



With over 13000 hectares, Kapama Private Game Reserve inhabits an immense area. It spreads from the R40 on the west to the Thornybush boundary on the east, and from the Eastgate Airport road to the north to the Klaserie Dam on the south, tucked between the northern Drakensberg Mountains and the Greater Kruger National Park. 


This impressive reserve has all the big game of Africa (including the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino). With 42 mammal species and approximately 350 bird species, this equates to huge natural diversity. Game drives are conducted through the rolling savannah grasslands and riverine forests that make up this African reserve. The Klaserie River flows through the reserve and offers ideal prowling grounds for leopard.
