Chapungu Tented Bush Camp

Reviewed February 27, 2007

Fantastic experience for two first time game 'hunters'! The quality of the accomodation was great and the availability of all the animals was amazing. The rangers were knowledgeable and managed to find almost all of the Big Five for us and were able to take us out on Bush Walks to see some of the other ecology and zoology of Thornybush.

Thirnybush also has its own airstrip and it is worth looking into an air transfer compared to the road transfer from Nelspruit or Eastgate.

We stayed two nights at Chapungu Lodge on the Thornybush Reserve and loved it! The staff is absolutely lovely and the game drives were amazing. The luxury tents are definitely that and the food was delicious. We saw most of the big five but never felt like we were at a zoo - it was clear that even though we were in a vehicle, we had to track down the animals to find them. The rangers and trackers really know what they're doing and were fascinating to talk to about the history of the region and the ecology of the area. Would definitely recommend!
