Itinerary

Day 1 Travel from Hotel in JHB/Airport to Kapama Reserve

Your tour will start in JHB where a Mr Shuttle Guide/Driver will pick you up at your Hotel or the Airport and start your travel to Kapama Reserve where Kapama Karula is situated. Upon arrival at the lodge, you will be assisted with check-in and head off to your rooms to settle. At around 3:30 pm, everyone gathers for a decadent high tea, before heading out with your ranger and tracker for the afternoon game drive through the reserve. En route, you’ll stop for a sundowner drink and will have a chance to stretch your legs as you watch the sunset over the distant peaks of the Drakensberg mountains. As darkness falls, the nocturnal animals of the bush come out. The skilled tracker will scan the landscape using a spotlight, which illuminates animals’ eyes. A variety of completely different species can be seen on the night drive back to the lodge. Arrival is at the lodge is usually around 7 pm, allowing time to freshen up before enjoying a sumptuous dinner.
