We stayed 2 nights at this peaceful and lovely bush camp. The game drives and bush walk were excellent – we saw the Big 5 (twice) and many more animals. Our ranger and tracker, Eric and Aubrey, ensured we had good sightings of animals up close. Was wonderful to see how the animals interact with each other in their wild... More

We stayed 4 nights at this wonderful tented camp. The staff provided excellent, yet discrete service, all your needs are anticipated. An intimate setting of 7 luxury tents in the heart of the wild life. 2 fantastic game drives each day, early morning & evening & our ranger & tracker were wonderful in ensuring we got to see all the...

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at Chapunga and had a lovely experience. The staff are charming and attentive. The Game Rides twice a day are fabulous and always rewarding. Our ranger Gerhardt and our tracker Victor were successful in bringing our vehicle within a few feet of leopards, lions, elephants, giraffes and numerous impala. We have amazing... More

We had the most amazing experience at Chapungu. The tented accommodations are rustic but comfortable, the food is homey and excellent, the game drives and walking tour mind blowing. We loved it here and would recommend it and return in a heart beat.

My husband and I stayed at Chapungu Lodge in October 2015 and were blown away! The peace and stillness of the bush was exactly what we needed after a very busy year. The staff are an absolute delight, the food hearty and the accommodation totally decadent. We also had a massage at the main lodge which was hands down one... More

We came here as part of our honeymoon. We weren't expecting it to be quite as luxurious as it was, we were absolutely blown away. Starting with the accommodation: The room was lovely, and doesn't feel at all like being in a 'tent'! It's fully equipped with a mosquito net around the bed and insect repellent, good sized bathroom and... More

What an absolute delight this "bush camp" was! Can't believe they refer to these as tents! Our tent has the largest bed (and beautiful linens) that I've ever slept in. Beautiful grounds and wonderful food! However, the facilities are nothing compared to the great service we experienced during our stay. Clearly we were there for the safari, which was spectacular....

We stayed for three days at the camp and we were so well cared for. The atmosphere is relaxed and all the staff are amazing. The food was delicious and plentiful.

Really enjoyed our time at this camp during our OAT Ultimate Africa pre-trip. Too bad this destination was not part of the main UA trip rather than Kafue, (which is remote and takes 2 exhausting days to go to and fro). Comfortable tents with full indoor bathrooms and an outside, private soaking tub! No wifi in tents, but available in... More
