About Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp

The hidden gem of the Mabula Private Game Reserve, Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp takes the modern “glamping” trend to the next level, whilst respecting the finest South African safari traditions. At Kwafubesi, authenticity coexists happily with luxury to create an “under canvas” experience that can put many hotels to shame.

Kwafubesi is immensely popular with those in the know, and consistently delights people who are really looking to get away from it all. The guest tents are set far enough apart to ensure complete privacy, with each one peering out from a line of magnificent trees. From their private decks (ideal for a bushveld date night dinner), guests can gaze out across Mvubu Plain – one of the most game-rich areas of the 12 000-hectare Mabula Private Game Reserve.

Kwafubesi provides a wonderfully intimate safari experience – it’s small enough to be booked exclusively by families or groups of friends and is entirely self-contained. Most meals are taken on the main deck, by the pool, and it is a common occurrence for animals to wander past as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Guests at Kwafubesi enjoy the same access to the Reserve as those staying at Mabula Game Lodge, and the same range of activities are on offer. These include game drives with experienced rangers, and guided bush walks that focus on some of the smaller details that make up the Mabula ecosystem. Horseback safaris and quad bike excursions are also options.

Returning from a morning or afternoon of spotting game, Kwafubesi guests return to luxurious en suite tents positioned on raised platforms to take advantage of both the cooling breezes and the panoramic vistas. The pool deck provides an additional sanctuary, while a home-cooked meal in the bomas makes for a spectacular, starlit end to any Kwafubesi experience.

Just two hours’ drive from Johannesburg, Kwafubesi is close to the city – but much closer to nature.

Safari: We offer a morning and afternoon 4x4 safari, as well has horseback safaris, guided walks and quad bike safari trails.

Golf: If you'd like to play a round of golf, you can attend Zebula Golf Estate just 7km from Kwafubesi.

Conference Venues: We have conference rooms and seating capacity for up to 160 delegates. We can also assist with informal breakaway venues; private dining and team building. Equipment includes TV, white board, projectors, a PA System, video recorder and flip charts.

Covid Safety Approved: The Safe & Clean Commitment protocols been implemented by the Extraordinary Collection is focused on the guest and staff safety by addressing the various hygiene and social distancing challenges that have been presented by COVID-19.
