Set on the banks of the perennial Klaserie River is one of Kapama’s most secluded and prestigious safari camps named Karula. Karula means "place of peace" in the native tongue, and soon after your arrival you will know exactly why this name is just so perfect for this magnificent luxury safari camp. Peace is but one of the many emotions that will encompass your soul as you look at the serene waterway meandering gently past your doorstep and the age old saying "water is life" will begin to have a whole new meaning for you.
Karula Lounge and Bar
The open plan lounge and bar area, with floor to ceiling glass doors illustrates the perfect balance with elegant light colors. This modern building with its whitewashed wooden structure, skylights and open air bar, creates a cozy feel to the lounge and makes it a day time favorite to enjoy a drink or just sit back and enjoy the sights Karula has to offer. The contemporary yet African feel to the camp will satisfy and exceed the expectations of even the most discerning connoisseurs. The outside wooden deck overlooking the Klaserie river gives you the opportunity to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and magnificent vistas the camp has to offer.
Karula Library & Media Room
A brilliant new addition and multi-purpose room that was built after the floods in January 2012. The library and media room boasts some of the best audio visual equipment but doubles as a library where you can read a good book in a breathtaking environment, or just take in nature’s views through the massive sliding windows. Keep in touch with family and loved ones at one of the two dedicated guest internet stations with WiFi on tap and free of charge. A private, romantic fireplace dinner can also be arranged with the camp personnel, and in a modern romantic setting like this, the answer can only be "Yes".
Karula Superior Suites
There are five Superior suites at Kapama Karula, each enjoying their own exquisitely decorated and generous private space. The suites measures 130 square meters and each have inside and outside showers, his and hers basins, bath, full mini bar fridge, coffee station with coffee machine, safe box, air conditioning, overhead fans, telephones, wall mounted international adapter, WiFi connection, iPod docking station, gas fireplace and any other commodity a seasoned traveler deserves. The big glass sliding doors that wrap around the suites, offers the opportunity to have unrestricted views over the Klaserie river and all it's inhabitants. Each suite has its own outside deck area and private lap pool with comfortable sun loungers.
Two of the Superior suites, measuring 170 square meters are truly breathtaking and purposely built for guests traveling with children. The open plan living room with its own fire place blends perfectly into the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and all the other standard luxuries of the superior suites included. Each suite is complimented with big glass sliding doors to enable unrestricted views over the river and breathtaking nature outside. Both suites have an outside deck with private lap pool and sun loungers. The second bedroom leads from the main living room with an inter-leading door (or the room can be entered by its own separate entrance). This room is also en-suite and apart from the standard luxuries also includes a Flat screen TV with a Wii game console and a Blue Ray player. These suites offer the ultimate luxury to enjoy with your family on Safari.
Also after the early 2012 floods, 5 new luxury suites were added to the already impressive portfolio of Karula, each suite measuring 85 square meters with inside and outside showers, his and hers basins, bath, full mini bar, coffee station with coffee machine, room safe, air conditioning, overhead fans, telephones, wall mounted international adapter, WiFi connection and iPod docking station. Again the massive glass sliding doors offer breathtaking views over the Klaserie river and surrounds. Guests opting for these lovely suites are welcome to make unrestricted use of the spectacular public areas and all facilities the main areas has to offer.
For a more "authentic" experience within the magnificence that is Karula, guests can also opt for one of two tents with full bush views under traditional canvas. These are more secluded and nestled away from the suites and superior suites in the camp. These two Tents are en-suite with outside shower, his and hers basins, bath, mini bar and fridge, safe box, air conditioning, telephone, WiFi connection and an outside wooden deck. A truly unique "timeless" experience .
