About Mabuda Farm

Mabuda Farm is a tranquil farm found on top the beautiful Lebombo Mountains, truly a place where time stands still. The wind whispers tales of forgotten colonial days and the dust clouds drift like shadows behind the old Ford tractors. Mabuda House was built in the early 1930s, and has been farmed for over 100 years.

There is something for everyone to enjoy, from horse riding to fantastic birding amidst spectacular views where you are sure to find yourself captivated. Swaziland has magnificent mountain scenery with unique, ancient rock formations which are a source of fascination for geologists and scholars.

Choose from our traditional 1930s-style thatched rondavels with authentic period d├ęcor, or one of our thatched chalets which can accommodate up to four guests each. We also offer facilities for up to 12 backpackers, three campsites with water, electricity, braai facilities and clean and tidy ablutions.

Mabuda Farm is an ideal place for horse riding, with many fields and roads for you to enjoy. Mabuda is also the ideal setting for that special weekend, a few days away from it all. A place for groups to meet up on the way to Mozambique or the perfect stopover en-route north, to the Kruger Park.

There are no TVs, bar or restaurant available on the farm. Activities include the dairy and milking, walks to the lilly pond, bird walks, maize growing, harvesting, a storage and milling tour, a guided tour of the main house by arrangement, bike riding, the swimming pool and exploration of Grandpa's Secret Garden hidden in the thick bush and tucked away into the eastern valley of Mabuda Farm.

We were booked for a room with shared bath but were pleasantly upgraded to a beautiful room with a room as I am in a wheelchair and did not fit in the bathroom booked. Staff were friendly, beds were comfortable, room was clean and large. I can't say enough about the grounds. There is a small swimming pool and lots of gardens to stroll around and a beautiful view. I would highly recommend this Farm for a stay. We are only there 1 night but would like to have stayed on longer. I would return. Thanks!

It is a lovely site and ideally one should stay for more than one night to explore the area.The 45Km road from Big Bend is a big challenge for a small car but once complete it will be a breeze to get to Siteki.

We camped at Mabuda Farm and found the camping site satisfactory. The gardens are well kept and the views are fantastic. We felt safe and could go on long walks. The ablution can do with a bit of revamp, but we had sufficient hot water.
