Kaparota Camp is situated on a tranquil and shady island in the Vumbura Community Development Concession. The island is covered with huge sausage trees, and a small channel runs in front of the camp. Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant and Red Lechwe are some of the game that may be viewed. Birding in the area is incredible, and species include White Headed Vulture, African Hawk Eagle, Roufusnaped Lark, Meyers Parrot, and Pel’s fishing owl.
Kaparota offers game drives, guided walks (at the final discretion of the camp manager), and mokoro rides. Game drives are conducted in open 4×4 Land Rovers with experienced guides. Night drives are possible nearly all year, but may be restricted for a few months in the middle of each year if we have extremely high flood levels. The variety of wildlife here is stunning. Guests can go out by boat in the morning and see Hippos, Crocodiles, Red Lechwe and all the aquatic wildlife – and then travel out by Land Rover in the afternoon to see Elephant, Sable and all the dry savannah game.
