Reviews from previous guests

“It was such a wonderful experience! From the moment we got there until the moment we left, we felt so welcome! All the staff are so friendly and always ready to help! The chef, Kevin did an outstanding job with the food with each meal, we enjoyed every moment of it! The game drives were out of this world! We experienced a very special and close up view of the elephants! Tristan was an absolute wonderful game ranger/guide! He really went the extra mile to make sure we got to see the ‘Mabula big 5’. He knows so much about the nature and we learned a lot during our stay! I will re-visit any day just because of Tristan! Thank you so much for all your effort and friendliness, Tristan, we appreciate it and really enjoyed it so much! The accommodation is really nice, it is such a relaxing and quiet atmosphere where one can just enjoy the silence of the bush. If you want to relax and eat way too much, this is the place to visit! It was a wonderful experience and we really didn’t want to leave and we cannot wait to visit again!” wrote Liza-Mari on their TripAdvisor page.

Alison T added; “Had a great two days-two nights at Kwafubesi. Staff were great and helpful at all times. Simple food brilliantly cooked by an accomplished chef who was happy to adjust to our particular needs. Host was always ready to assist. Game driver was knowledgeable, entertaining and patient. Mabula Game Reserve itself is stunning. If there’s a single spot for improvement, it would be the installation of fans over the open-air dining room to keep a breeze going.”

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!
