Had a great time, enjoyed the privacy and comfort of everything. Staff were great. Compliments to the chef. Game drives were great, the guide was very good, could have been a bit more friendly though. Will definitely be back soon

What a lovely experience! Staff is extremely friendly and as the groups are small you get really personal service. Excellent facilities even when staying in the tent. Animals come close and beautiful nature all around us.

What makes this camp so wonderful is that you are situated in the middle of the park with no fences. Wildlife can wander in and out of the camp as they wish, we had leopard, porcupine and hippo come visit us! (It is still safe to stay in the camp..) The tents are clean, private, spacious and comfortable. I was...

My husband and I had a wonderful experience in the bushveld. The staff were very friendly, and the food good. The place would be a gem with some minor renovations. (The décor was tired and the furniture old.)

Reviewed 6 January 2017 via mobile

Our field guides were excellent explaining many things about bush and finding good animal sightings. Kitchen staff were friendly and provided good flavored food. The best was the peaceful surroundings and being able to enjoy our tent as if we were the only ones there.

We stayed for one night at Kwafubesi on our way south through Waterberg back to J'burg. Tents are raised off the ground and have all facilities to make life very comfortable - very comfy beds, great bathroom with massive bath.

Great, but the preference is too have more comfort and this was granted at the Mabula lodge. We have stayed one night at Kwafubesi en 5 nights at Mabula. The main reason for the above was that Mabula was not available at the first day of the stay, but again the experience was interesting.

we were so lucky. we were the only ones in the camp and the only ones of the game drive. this was the EXACT experience we were hoping for. but, if the camp was full, only 5 tents, I think it would still have been lovely. a far cry from the hotel, tourist vibe.... what a breath of fresh air....
