Reviews from previous Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp guests

“Our last weekend of an extended 6 week trip to SA. I wanted to get away from Johannesburg and the Kwafubesi tented camp is close enough – and well thought out. We had an excellent stay. Tristan, Margaret and Johannes and Johannes looked after us so well. The game drives were great, food lovely, and having only 8 or 10 people meant the whole experience was in a great atmosphere,” wrote African Explorer on their TripAdvisor page.

Elmar Van Onselen added; “We visited Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp on 7 March 2020. We chose Kwafubesi as it only has 5 tents and are thus more intimate. Camp, hospitality, food, game drives and everything else was amazing! Would definitely return soon.”

“A magnificent experience, excellent food, memorable game drives, close up to animals because they are not skittish from being hunted. I’ve seen many zebra before, but never so close as if you could just reach out and touch them. And never so close that you could hear the crunch of the bones at the lion kill, hear them breathe even and look them straight in the eye! Sleeping in a tent, as luxurious as an en-suite hotel room, yet right out in the bush, where you have only the songs of birds, frogs and crickets, was just magnificent. The quiet of the bush, with all the luxury of a luxury lodge. Highly recommended,” said angymooi.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
