The bigger house called "Fig Tree House " has become a favorite for families ,especially those escaping the heat and noise of Maputo which is only 2.5 hrs drive away.It has a big veranda with a beautiful view ,it is close to the children's play ground and the pool and is even big enough to accommodate two families should you...

Was in Siteki for a bike race. Well kept tranquil beautiful place. Very comfortable bed but limited cooking facilities. Friendly staff. Mosquitos irritating but there are nets on beds but not the full frame type which are easier to use.

Thank you for staying at Mabuda B&B and that you were able to enjoy a comfortable rest before the bike race despite the mosquitoes.They have been a challenge to control this summer ,we suspect its due to the good rains after the long drought .Fortunately they don't carry malaria and they disappear over the winter months .We recommend visitors bring...

Dear Mandy ,one of our visions for Mabuda is that guests will be able to retreat from the rush of their busy lives and be refreshed by God's awesome creation .

We had a group of 15 stay and we all enjoyed it and had a great experience! Night watchman is on duty every night but we never felt like we needed him. We freely roamed the property. Family owned - very hospitable family. Wi-Fi available at a small cost. Guest houses were like cottages right out of a story book....

Stayed at Mabuda Farms for 3 nights and really liked it. The farm is just outside Siteki in the east. This is not such a major tourist hub as the Ezulwini area so if you are after some peace and quiet this is the place to be. Accommodation from backpacker to family style. The farm has plenty to offer in...
