The Accommodation at Zindoga Villa
A completely self-contained facility, the Zindoga Villa with the Camp Jabulani reserve is a palatial replica of Camp Jabulani’s style and elemental premise.
The Villa is a mammoth 424m2, with an additional 225m2 of wooden deck overlooking the wild African bush of the Kruger Park.
Two individual suites are connected by a joint lounge and dining area.
Each unit has a massive bedroom with bathroom en-suite (including glass enclosed shower), expansive wooden deck, and a private heated plunge pool.
One of the suites also has an adjoining charming twin room, with private bathroom, for two children sharing.
The Zindoga Villa can accommodate a maximum of 9 guests at any given time.
The Zindoga Villa has wireless internet connectivity throughout for those who need to be connected to business or home, and is serviced by its own dedicated team – including ranger (and private vehicle), chef and butler.
Elegance, grand open spaces, luxurious finishes and a harmonious union with the African wild are the order of the day.
We wish to welcome you to Zindoga Villa in the near future.
What to bring to Kapama Lodges
When coming on safari to South Africa, what to pack and what to leave behind may be slightly different to conventional holidays abroad.
To ensure you are well prepared, we have compiled a list of useful tips and items to bring along on your South African safari.
During the Summer Months
The summer months extend from September to April, with the hottest period between October to February each year – which is also the time of year when rain is possible.
Rainfall generally takes the form of thunderstorms, which last just for an hour or so, after which the weather clears up again.
Kapama provides rain ponchos for guests use on game drive vehicles and umbrellas for use at all the lodges.
Summers are generally warm to extremely hot, but may still be cool in the early mornings.
Packing a light jacket and warm cap (especially for game drives) is advised.
However, by noon, temperatures in summer are often very hot and suited to cool, short-sleeved shirts and shorts – light cotton fabric is best.
Also pack bathing suits so that you can cool off from the heat with a dip in the pool.
Swimming pool towels are available for your use at the lodge.
African heat can be intense and the sun is very harsh, so always wear a high protection factor sunblock along with a lip balm and sunglasses.
Insect repellent will come in handy, although game drive vehicles do carry repellent on board should you mislay yours.
During the Winter Months
Winter in the Lowveld area of South Africa where Kapama Safari Lodges are based is from May to August with the coldest period being from the end of June and throughout July.
During this time, fleece blankets are provided on vehicles for your use on game drives.
Early mornings and evenings may be very cold, so it is recommended to pack a thick jacket, scarf and cap along with closed shoes and socks.
A pair of warm gloves will be useful, especially on game drives.
Keep clothing colours as neutral and as light as possible so that you can blend in with nature.
Remember to bring malaria prophylaxis medication with you as Kapama Safari Lodges are situated in a malaria area.
Bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes.
Meals are informal, so smart attire is not required.
Electricity at Kapama is 220 volt alternating current system – wall plug units take a round two-prong European plug.
Remember to pack your camera and lenses.
We do have WI-FI at the camps.
Kapama Game Reserve includes the following lodges: Kapama River Lodge, Kapama Buffalo Camp, Kapama Southern Camp & Kapama Karula
