About Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp

Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is an intimate glamping retreat located in the greater Mabula Private Game Reserve, situated in the stunning Waterberg region. The 12,000 hectares of malaria-free bushveld is home to an astounding selection of large mammals, including the Big Five, and with surrounding savannah plains and towering mountains, guests are in for a truly immersive escape in the African bush.

Accommodating only 10 guests in five luxuriously appointed and elevated tents, the Kwabufesi Tented Safari Camp blends seamlessly to its bushveld surroundings offering an authentic safari experience for small groups, couples or families travelling together. Each canvas tent features twin or double beds, a beautiful stone bath, rain shower, and private viewing deck for evenings under the stars. The scenic main lodge is where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, and is also host to a beautiful pool patio and outdoor seating area.

Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp Setting

Mabula Private Game Reserve in South Africa is renowned for various conservation projects, including the introduction of a breeding pack of wild dogs in the Waterberg. This makes Mabula Private Game Reserve the closest big game reserve to Gauteng where visitors can experience these captivating carnivores and many more rare species in the wild, all while staying at Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp.

Early morning safaris in an open 4×4 game viewing vehicle from Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp offer guests the chance to see nature awakening to the glow of the morning sun, while afternoon sundowner safaris allow for a few hours of game viewing before dusk descends over the majestic Waterberg. There is a vast array of other activities on offer too, from quad biking eco-adventures and stargazing to bird walks and even horse riding.
