Tucked away in the teeming savannah plains and acacia-dotted bushveld that is the greater Mabula Private Game Reserve, our delightfully small and profoundly intimate camp consists of five luxuriously appointed tents. Each tent is raised on a platform with its own private deck and spaced widely apart to ensure absolute privacy for our guests.

Our safari tents embrace an African décor, epitomising comfort, ambience and serenity. The en-suite bathroom, reminiscent of an Out of Africa experience, comprises of a toilet, washbasin, large stone bath and shower with running hot and cold water and towel racks with soft fluffy towels.

The bedroom consists of double/twin beds with nightstands, fans and electric blankets for those chilly wintry nights. There is a hanging cupboard with shelves and a table providing coffee and tea making facilities. We also offer an ice bucket with bottled water. Along the canvas walls, there are outlets for charging camera equipment and mobile phones.

The private timber deck enables guests to withdraw for some private leisure time in-between game drives or to sit out in the evening after dinner to gaze at the star-filled Limpopo night sky

Drift asleep to the cacophony of crickets and cicadas, or the chiming of small frogs to awake to a new day, as Cape Turtle doves are gently cooing at the early morning air.

Your safari awaits you!


Providing sanctuary from the hustle and bustle from the stresses of everyday life, Kwabubesi Tented Safari Camp is an idyllic oasis in a truly tranquil setting of the stunning malari-free Waterberg area.

The open lounge area, set in the heart of the bushveld, consists of a lounge, fully-stocked bar and restaurant with spectacular expansive views over the savannah plains. A crystal clear splash pool with deck chairs allows for both relaxation and a cool respite from the daytime heat, while an open fireplace and separate boma warms chilly winter nights and gives our guests the opportunity to relax as the day draws to a close.

Since we are a small camp, attention to detail and personal service is assured at all times and, if you feel the need for that extra bit of pampering, Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp guests are able to enjoy the benefits of a soothing massage, or opt for a range of beauty treatments at the Mabula Spa. Our qualified therapists offer a variety of relaxing treatments ranging from Swedish to Aromatherapy, Hot Stone to Fusion massages to revitalise and indulge the body and mind.

Additional facilities, such as a full spa, curio shop, tennis courts and kids wild zone may be found at Mabula Game Lodge. Kwafubesi guests are also invited to make use of the free WI-FI at the main lodge.


Private, personal, intimate. Dining at Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is a stylish bush experience of its own.

Our talented chefs pride themselves on food that is well presented and is of the highest quality and taste. Boasting signature South African bush cuisine, meals are prepared with passion and creativity, warranting that breakfast, lunch and dinner are part of the highlight of your stay. From Continental and English breakfast, innovative lunch treats to bushveld tapas or an authentic South African braai (barbecue), our guest’s specific dietary requirements and preferences are always catered to.

The informal ambience and setting of Kwafubesi offsets the elaborate efforts and skills with which our guests’ individual needs are attended to. This includes the option of enjoying a private breakfast on your deck. Dinner is served in the restaurant or in the traditional boma, where a fire crackles beneath the magical canvas of a clear starry night sky. Please advise us of any specific dietary requirements or allergies prior to your stay.
