About Mafigeni Safari Lodge

Welcome to Luxury in Harmony with Nature. This beautifully appointed Lodge is unique in design and offers guests unsurpassed Bushveld vistas and luxury chalets designed and situated to offer our guests seclusion and comfort.

The Lodge combines a blend of elegance and modern comfort and is situated in the heart of the Bushveld, only 40 minutes drive from the renowned Kruger Park. Well appointed comfortable chalets each feature en suite bathrooms and private veranda’s overlooking the Bushveld. This is the perfect location to use as a base to explore the wealth of destinations and activities in the area.

Cuisine is a superb affair, offering a dramatic fusion of African and Western flavours, surpassing expectations of even the most discerning diner. Your safari experience also includes the opportunity to dine in the bush.

Our rates for the Lodge include Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, as well as drinks and a daily game drive.

Our aim is to provide each guest with professional service and individual attention. Stay long enough, and we’ll introduce you to a variety of trees, birds, reptiles and more than 100 mammals. We invite you to come and share Bushveld stories around the fire, recount the days’ events at the bar, feast at our magnificent dining room table or simply while away your time beside the pool.

The Mafigeni Tent Camp is situated on the Safari Lodge Premises, in the Makutsi Conservancy, just 40 minutes from the renowned Kruger National Park. Two intimate Safari Tents offer an unforgettable bush experience. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, fully equipped kitchenette and braai/bar-b-que off the patio.

Your safari experience is one of intimacy where privacy is the order of the day. With only 2 guests per tent and maximum 4 guests in camp at any time, your chances of experiencing game sightings close-by are heightened.

The tents are decorated in fine African style with locally sourced furnishings, which emanate a proudly South African, yet subtle safari heritage. Through the use of rich fabrics and opulent lanterns, the Mafigeni Tent Camp is nothing short of classic safari stay.

The self-catering and fully serviced Tent Camp has a dedicated ranger and host during your stay. With activities such as guided game drives, bush walks and game viewing on horseback, guests can choose to track game or simply relax in camp.

Your safari experience takes you through eco-zones of Combretum and Acacia Thornveld, allowing regular sightings of major mammal species such as Buffalo, Giraffe, Kudu, Wildebeest and Zebra.

After a full day of Bushveld activities, witness the exquisite colours of the sun setting behind the Drakensburg Mountain Range, then delight in the star-filled Limpopo sky.

Mafigeni Tent Camp is an ideal retreat for those looking for complete privacy. We warmly welcome you to our Tent Camp which incorporates African simplicity and activities to embrace the natural wonders of the Bushveld and Animal Kingdom.

Mafigeni's Bush Camp is situated in the Makhutsi Conservancy area, between Tzaneen and Hoedspruit, Limpopo. This charming, owner operated Camp is located in the heart of the African Bushveld on the Mafigeni Home Ranch and offers guests a warm, relaxed atmosphere. The Camp combines a blend of colonial elegance and rustic comfort and is just 40 minutes drive from the renowned Kruger National Park.
There are 5 Cabins that are well appointed around the central Boma and Kitchen area. The Boma offers guests a traditional bushveld atmosphere, while savouring the authentic bushveld cuisine around an open fire. The Boma features a large open fireplace with plenty of outdoor seating.

Cuisine is a traditional affair. We serve hearty bush cuisine which includes traditional braai’s, potjies and mouthwatering desserts at dinner time. Breakfasts are served between 7am and 8:30am and include a choice of cereals, yoghurts, toast, jams, eggs, sausage, baked beans and more! Our rates include Breakfast, Dinner and a game drive daily.

The communal ablution facilities boast hot and cold running water in the private showers and flush toilets.
The camp runs off a generator to offer electricity. The generator runs for 8 hours per day. All cabins and bathrooms are equipped with emergency lights and we also supply flashlights in the cabins for guests use.
We invite you to share what we consider to be a unique way of life and enjoy the wildlife on nature walks, game drives and horseback trails. Take pleasure in the landscape and panoramic bushveld views from the tranquillity of this bush camp.

Stay as long as possible, not only to relax and unwind, after all, that is what the Bushveld is all about, but also to discover a rich and diverse ecosystem with us through authentic interactive safari activities. A multitude of safari activities are offered on the reserve and the camp is also very well located for you to explore the Greater Kruger Park area.

Mafigeni's Bush Camp is the perfect location to use as a base to explore the wealth of destinations and activities in the area or to simply get away for a well-deserved break

We had a lovely experience visiting Mafigeni Lodge. Friendly staff awaited us and the tent (with aircon) had all the luxuries we could have wanted.

What a great weekend we had at Mafigeni! The units are great, the setting beautiful and the staff wonderful. The dinners were very special with all the guests seated around a giant dining table. New friends were made and Steven's cuisine is out of this world. The staff went to great lengths to ensure that we feel welcome and comfortable. We will certainly be returning.
