Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp – An Intimate Bush experience

Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is in the Mabula Private Game Reserve.  Five intimate tents offer an unforgettable bush experience.  Each luxurious tent has private viewing decks, stone baths and is linked from the central dining and lounge via sand walkways.  Your safari experience is one of intimacy where personalised service is the order of the day.  With only 10 people in camp at any time, your chances of experiencing game sightings close by are heightened, especially with the camp being positioned within Rhino territory.


Five luxurious en-suite tents, all raised on platforms and offer generous space between them, maximizing privacy at all times. Located on the tree line of an open plain, the tents’ interiors have been designed spaciously, and soft furnishings follow the lines of strong hues of rich African colour. The bathrooms boast a large stone bath and deluxe shower rose, both of which offer views overlooking the bush. Each tent enjoys a private deck overlooking an open plain allowing for game sightings up close and personal, especially with the camp being positioned in territory that is renowned to be home to Rhino.  For those guests who are true romantics, a private deck dinner is a must as too is a breakfast picnic in the fresh early morning air.
