At Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp, we pride ourselves on offering an indulgent, exclusive experience at an affordable price. Tucked away in the surrounding bushveld of spectacular malaria-free and “Big Five” Greater Mabula Game Reserve, Kwafubesi offers the ultimate retreat to the heart of the African bush and a return to time uncomplicated by the burdens of modern-day. Our Exclusive Camp Use offering elevates our private experience by providing a secluded oasis for you to share with just your loved ones in a stunning environment.
Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the way that we want to travel. After almost five months of lockdown, where many of us have been stuck within the confines of busy city life, the longing for a well-deserved escape to the bush has never been stronger. At Kwafubesi, we recognize the growing desire of our guests to have the ability to enjoy the seclusion of our Camp with only their trusted circle. We have evolved to become the ideal destination for those who want to return to the African bush with their loved ones, but in a manner that is affordable and sustainable.
Our Exclusive Camp Use embodies the philosophy that inspires everything that we do at Kwafubesi: to provide a secluded haven that truly connects you with nature. The African bush with its natural distancing, endless horizons, and boundless skies, has always been ready for this occasion. We endeavor to be the link between you and the natural world in a comfortable setting that allows you to reinvigorate yourself, share special moments with your loved ones, and indulge in the therapeutic powers of nature. Surrender to the genuineness of a simpler way of life and the authenticity of the bush living. Kwafubesi is your second home in the African bush.
Our extraordinarily secluded Camp offers 5 luxurious, raised tents that maximise your privacy.
Discreetly tucked away under the treelines of the Mvubu Plain, our five deluxe and raised tents have been designed with the flavour of the African bush. Each of the well-appointed tents, which features a big five species as their namesake, are raised on platforms that provide you with a grand view of the impressive surroundings. Our camp was decisively designed to maximise the feeling of being at one with nature at all times. Gaze at the blazing, bright starry Waterberg sky, and drift asleep to the cacophony of frogs and insects. Awaken to the early morning cooing of the Cape Turtle Dove, then step outside onto your own private viewing deck to admire the unparalleled sunrise over the Waterberg landscape as you are serenaded by the dawn chorus.
Kwafubesi is the ideal destination, not just for experiencing nature but also, for focusing on your wellness. From our crystal clear splash pool to the availability of spa treatments at the Mabula Spa, to our personalized service that sets our intimate camp apart, your wellbeing is our priority.
Dining is an opportunity to slow things down and reflect on your experiences.
Small and intimate dining experiences are what you can always expect at Kwafubesi Tented Camp. Indulge in our resident chef’s signature and proudly South African bush cuisine, prepared with hearty doses of passion and creativity. By providing us with your group’s dietary preferences, you will be spoilt by our meticulously selected dishes, from our bushveld tapas to our authentic South African braais.
Whether you indulge in a romantic dinner for two in the privacy of your own deck or enjoy the incomparable magic of a traditional boma dinner, the bush’s starry skies and enchanting chorus will always create an impeccable ambience.
We will always be a call away without ever being in your personal space.
In the wake of Covid-19, we have worked hard to ensure that we provide maximum service to make certain that no need goes unmet whilst maintaining and protecting your privacy and safety. As such, our talented team has extensively familiarised themselves with our elevated Covid-19 protocols and will be able to provide you with the welcoming service that defines what we do. We have guaranteed that your safety is prioritised at every stage of your safari experience.
