    Service, friendliness, quality, all fantastic. Quality of the game viewing and ranger. Great place to get away with a partner and relax. Nice and close to JHB as well for those driving there. Tent and amenities were excellent.

    This was the best safari experience I’ve ever had outside of Kruger. It’s close to Joburg and so secluded! Far better the the main lodge and also than Pilansburg or the like! You’re actually in the bush and I can’t recommend this place enough!

    Dear ohscrewit - Thanks for your question - no air conditioning (for environmental and logistical reasons) but all the Kwafubesi tents are carefully site for natural shade and designed for maximum airflow through the tent.
