About Hotel Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp

Set in almost 30,000 acres of sub-tropical forests, Hotel Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp is the base for an Out of Africa, luxury, bush experience.

The five luxury tents are each set on a raised platform. Whilst oil lamps add to the romance of the stay, practical solutions are enjoyed via the electricity supply, complimentary toiletries and en-suite bathroom.

An open-air pool, airport shuttle, laundry, and parking are available; also, conference rooms. Guests arriving by air may use the private airstrip, about 500 metres away, at Mabula Game Lodge.

Chef prepared African bush themed breakfast and other meal choices are served in the dining area and supplemented by BBQ treats. Dietary requirements are accommodated on request.

Guided bush walks, along with quad riding and horseback safaris are the prime attractions. With just ten guests at any one time, any additional company is in the form of lions, leopards, buffalo and other wild animals. Golf is approximately seven kilometres away at Zebula Golf Estate.

Positive Reviews

Away from the concrete jungle, peace reigns

Guests love the fact that the camp is in the middle of nowhere. With only ten guests maximum, they say that they count themselves lucky, as they have never previously experienced levels of peace and quiet like this. These elements are, guests say, further unique aspects of a stay which, is already strewn with unforgettable memories.

This brilliant staff is a rare species

Guests agree that it is the staff members who are pivotal to the success of the stay. Their friendly and expert attention ensures that guests can see the resident wild animals close up and in their natural habitat. Also, at meal times, the friendly chef cooks up some impressive dining experiences. Guests remark that there is no beating about the bush; it is only as a result of these remarkable members of staff that they are destined to leave here with memories that will last forever.

Accommodation is pitched perfectly

Safari, so good; is how guests rate their tent accommodation. They register real surprise at how comfortably fitted out the tents are. They are really spacious too and guests say that they certainly did not expect the beds to be as comfortable as they are.

Negative Reviews

The heat is in tents

Guests agree that it comes with the territory but mention that the tent can become extremely hot, particularly during the day. The electric fan, on these occasions, does not stand a chance as it strives to compete.

An absentee chef; and meals go off the boil

Guests say that they can easily tell the days when the chef is on leave or recovering from a bug. There seems to be no backup and the quality of the meals can take a disastrous downhill dive.
