Lions calling can be heard several miles away in the bush, and it is the most enthralling and humbling experiences of a lifetime. A real safari should have at least some time spent with canvas walls, insulating you from the surrounding night prowlers, as it has been done for centuries. Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp is a brilliant way to experience this safely and in air-conditioned luxury, that the early explorers could only dream of.

In the heart of the Thornybush Nature Reserve, adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park lies this private gem of tented opulence. Tasteful colonial splendour and style reminiscent of a bygone era, with modern yet discreet comfort, these eight luxury air-conditioned en-suite tents are ideal to base your explorations of wildlife rich locale while making use of the professional talented guides and trackers.

Spend the nights in the company of fellow travellers enjoying the stories of the days’ game experiences around the camp fire before retiring to the magic of the African night in the comfort of your tent.
