About
Description
Kapula is a game viewing paradise during the dry season where guests can see vast herds of elephant and buffalo in addition to plain game, and hear the lions roar at night. The Kapula concession consists of two More camps: North Camp with four 2-bed luxury safari tents on raised wooden decks with en-suite bathrooms and additional outside showers, self-catering; and South Camp with four 2-bed safari tents, on concrete slabs on the ground with en-suite bathrooms, self-catering. We prefer to keep the camps small and intimate. There is no 24 hour standby electricity at Kapula and all rooms’ electrical requirements are solar-generated. Guests are therefore not able to use hairdryers, kettles etc. in the rooms. The communal main building does have facilities for charging camera batteries, cell phone batteries etc. Both camps have a kitchen equipped with all the necessities. Less
