Offering spectacular golden plains, breathtaking sunsets and Big 5 game viewing, Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp, Place of the Giant Eagle Owl, is the ideal location for a starry-eyed getaway. Discreetly tucked away in the tree line on the edge of the magnificent Mvubu plain, Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp pampers its guests in five luxury canvas tents, where romantic oil lamps and home prepared meals served in the thatched Lapa add to this unique Out of Africa experience.

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.
