A safari is that bit more exciting when your base is a tent. Come and enjoy Kwafubesi‘s very comfy, en-suite safari tents – there are just five and each has its own viewing deck that grants you glorious views of those beautiful amber plains of Limpopo.

The tents are positioned along a treeline, on the edge of the magnificent Mvubu plain, where you are full-square in the wilderness. It’s the territory of the Big Five, this, and 12 000 hectares is yours to explore with your ranger. The open-plain views from the tents are wonderful, and you’re likely to spot game from your tented base. Of course, the daily safari drives will bring some great sightings too.

Meals are wonderful close-to-nature occasions, taken in the glow of oil lamps out in the thatched lapa or in the boma.
