Kwafubesi tented safari camp is located right in the heart of the beautiful Mabula game reserve. It is home to an incredible selection of large mammals including the 'Big 5' as well as many other predators like the hyena and jackal, and to a wide variety of antelope from red hartebeest to eland, gemsbok to blesbok.
Don't forget about the elusive cheetah, cheeky honey badger and the omnipresent crèches of warthogs that flit across one’s path during your game drive at Kwafubesi.
Guests can enjoy game drives twice a day – once early morning and again in time for sundowners in the late afternoon. Depending on the time of year that you visit, each experience will be unique. Watch the vivid change of the seasons as the green thickets and grasslands give way to the bushveld greys and yellows of autumn. Feel the chilly winter air on your cheeks before sunrise and you can watch the rebirth of the bush as the first summer rains fall and with it the exciting arrival of lambing season.
Guests can enjoy panoramic views across the beautiful Mabula Game Reserve and be sure to head up Dicks Hill. See Impala, Zebra, Giraffe, Eland and Ostrich which will all graze together on the vast open grassland plains. See the herd of elephant crashing through the thick bush to get to the juiciest leaves or a shy hippo pair hiding everything but their protruding nostrils under the water. Admire Kwafubesi's resident lion pride lazing under an African thorn tree after a tiring hunt or watch silently as the beautiful, yet terrifying, Golden Orb spider spins her thick web across two Silver Cluster Leaf trees.
Kwafubesi’s luxuriously appointed tents, which have the 'Big 5' as their namesake, are raised on platforms each with its own private deck where you can enjoy a romantic private dinner for two or picnic breakfast.
Discreetly tucked away in the surrounding bushveld to ensure guests’ absolute privacy, the comfortable furnishings, African décor and full bathroom, including shower, large stone bath and stunning views, provide a welcome sanctuary from the heat of the bush.
Gaze at the blazing bright starry Limpopo sky, and drift asleep to the cacophony of frogs and insects. Awake to the early morning cooing of the Cape Turtle Dove, then step outside on the deck to admire the Waterberg landscape.
Nature lovers will love the closeness of the Waterberg’s beautiful bush surroundings.
Cool off in Kwafubesi’s crystal clear splash pool, relax on the pool loungers reading a book or enjoy a refreshing cocktail flopped comfortably in the open lounge area offering spectacular views of the bush.
