We did a safari at christmas/new years starting at Elephant Plains and then going to Chapungu. When we were booking the trip there were few reviews about Chapungu so I was a little worried that the safari would not as good as Elephant Plains. On the contrary Chapungu turned out to be amazing! The rooms are wonderful, the food was delicious and best of all the game drives were out of this world. Our ranger went above and beyond to find us animals we had yet to see at Elephant plains. The rangers are fun, enthusiastic, knowleable, accomodating and most importantly you can tell that they love being part of the safari experience. If you are considering Thornybush vs Sabi Sands don't worry you will not be disappointed with Thornybush.
