Kwafubesi's luxuriously appointed tents, which have the Big 5 as their namesake, are raised on platforms each with its own private deck where you can enjoy a romantic private dinner for two or picnic breakfast. 

Discreetly tucked away in the surrounding bushveld to ensure guests’ absolute privacy, the comfortable furnishings, African décor and full bathroom, including shower, large stone bath and stunning views, provide a welcome sanctuary from the heat of the bush.

Gaze at the blazing bright starry Limpopo sky, and drift asleep to the cacophony of frogs and insects. Awake to the early morning cooing of the Cape Turtle Dove, then step outside on the deck to admire the Waterberg landscape.

Nature lovers will revel from the unrivalled closeness with the Waterberg’s beautiful bush surroundings.

Game drives

Offered to Kwafubesi guests twice a day – once early morning and again in time for sundowners in the late afternoon, and depending on the time of year you visit, each experience can be unique.

Watch the vivid change of the seasons as the green thickets and grasslands give way to the bushveld greys and yellows of autumn. Feel the chilly winter air on your cheeks before sunrise and witness the rebirth of the bush as the first summer rains fall and with it the exciting arrival of lambing season.

At an extra cost, the following activities are available:

  • Horseback safaris
  • Guided bushwalks
  • Guided stargazing
  • Eco adventure trails (quad biking)

Cool off in Kwafubesi’s crystal clear splash pool, relax on the pool loungers reading a book or enjoy a refreshing cocktail flopped comfortably in the open lounge area offering a spectacular view of the bush.
