Accommodation

TUCKED AWAY IN THE SAVANNAH PLAINS AND ACACIA-DOTTED SAFARI DESTINATION THAT IS THE GREATER MABULA PRIVATE GAME RESERVE, OUR INTIMATE, FIVE-STAR SAFARI LODGE CONSISTS OF LUXURIOUSLY APPOINTED SAFARI TENTS.

Each secluded tent is raised on a platform with a private wooden deck that allows for safaris or star gazing during a safari near Gauteng. The five canvas tents epitomise unrivalled comfort and are done up in tasteful safari-style décor, toned-down colours and natural materials that are reminiscent of ‘Out of Africa’.

Deliberately arranged in such a manner to offer utmost privacy and only welcoming only 10 guests at a time, Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is well suited to families travelling with children (8 years and older) or small groups looking for personal attention.

The spacious tented bedrooms of this small game lodge comfortably accommodate twin or double beds, bedside tables, hanging cupboards and power points. Meanwhile, the tea- and coffee-making facilities, electric blankets, fans and ice buckets with bottled water ensure that guests are always comfortable no matter the weather conditions while on safari.

After an exciting day in the African wilderness, indulge in a large stone bath or shower with hot and cold running water in the en-suite bathrooms, before drifting off to sleep to the sounds of nature as it envelops the game reserve.

Facilities

A SANCTUARY FROM THE STRESSES OF EVERYDAY LIFE, KWAFUBESI TENTED SAFARI CAMP IS A SAFARI GETAWAY IN THE TRANQUIL SETTING OF THE MALARIA-FREE WATERBERG.

The sumptuous camp lounge is set in the heart of this luxury game lodge near Johannesburg. Its stylish dining area and bar showcase expansive views over the waterhole and golden Mvube Plain often frequented by plains game, giraffe and even rhino, best viewed with a drink in one hand and binoculars in the other. While the crackling fireplace in the boma sets the mood for dinner as it welcomes guests back from their sunset safari as the day draws to a close.

When it comes to truly unwinding during your safari holiday, the refreshing splash pool which is necklaced by deck chairs offers respite from the afternoon sun. This may be followed by a relaxing massage or beauty treatment which can be arranged at Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp or at Mabula Spa to revitalise the body and calm the mind. Our sister camp, Mabula Game Lodge, has a curio shop, tennis courts, kids wild zone and unlimited, complimentary WI-FI for use by our guests.

Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp pulls out all the stops when it comes to the personal care and undivided attention we offer each of our valued guests, yet it is still an affordable game lodge near Gauteng that offers value.
