Kapama Buffalo Camp

Based on traditional East African safari camps, Buffalo offers visitors a unique and intimate experience of the African bush. The luxury game lodge is built from natural stone and wood for an olde worlde appeal, while the thatched bar, dining-room and campfire area contribute to this ambience and at night oil lanterns (rather than electric lights) glow under the treetop canopy.

This nostalgic charm is carried through to meals, which are à la carte and served under a canopy of thatch, or around a roaring open fire, while the communal areas are built on the riverbank and
surrounded by wild gardens of aloe and euphorbia.

What’s especially enchanting about Buffalo, however, are the 10 plush tented suites that are set on stilted wooden decks among the canopies of ancient trees which line a seasonal river. The tents and main lodge are inter-connected with wooden walkways, which run high above a sandy riverbed and in the dry season antelope searching for grazing use it and provide the ultimate bird’s eye view.
