Facts & Facilities

 

Pricing / child policy

Kapamba is open from April to January

 

 

 

Children of 12 years and older are welcome

  • As children under 12 years of age are not allowed to go on walking safaris in the Park, families travelling with children aged 11 years and below will need to reserve the entire camp on a private basis and also hire a Private Guide & Vehicle for the duration of their stay at any of our Bushcamps. This enables the adults to go on walking safaris while the younger children can go on game drives with the guide in the extra vehicle.
