Set on the banks of the ever-flowing Klaserie River, amongst dense riparian vegetation, the modern and uniquely designed Karula Lodge is one of South Africa’s most prestigious camps.
Chic and contemporary, Kapama Karula is a small, intimate safari lodge composed of a series of luxurious tents and exclusive suites.
Tents and chalets
The meru-style tents and five exclusive chalets nestle discretely under a canopy of trees in the natural bush to ensure solitude and privacy.
Each has his-and-hers basins, inside and outside showers and sliding glass doors that wrap 260 degrees around the suite, offering guests the opportunity to have unrestricted views of the Klaserie river. The 115m² suites are simply stunning and come with every form of luxury.
The Central Lodge
The Central lodge is a short walk through pathways. Here guests will find the swimming pool, the slick bar with a floor-to-ceiling glass doors, as well as a chic dining room, built up in the treetops. It is furnished with vivid, colourful modern art and Phillipe Starck chairs.
With its whitewash wooden structure, skylights allowing wide shafts of natural light to pour in, and the contemporary, yet African feel of the main building will impress the connoisseurs. The outside Siligna deck overlooking the river adds to the Karula’ appeal.
