CHAPUNGU TENTED CAMP RATES: Chapungu Tented Camp Rates

Adjacent to the greater Kruger National Park lies a vast African wilderness, home to Africa's big game including the Big Five and many other species of mammals and birds. It is here, in the heart of the Thornybush Game Reserve, that the nostalgic guest will find Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp.

Chapungu is the Shona word for Bateleur Eagle. The eagle takes its name from the French word meaning "tight rope walker." This may be seen in the Bateleur's flight pattern, whereby the wings are constantly tilting as if balancing on a tightrope.

Authentically furnished in colonial splendor, handpicked pieces fill the lodge and its five air-conditioned en-suite tents, enhancing the ambience and comforts typical of a bygone era. The tents are washed with the warmth and color of the afternoon sun and in true African style, they overlook the magnificent bushveld. It is here that the camp's guests may while away moments relaxing and reflecting on the tranquility and intimacy afforded by this small camp.

Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp comprises of 5 en-suite luxury tents and one Suite. The camp accommodates a maximum of ten guests. Accommodations include the following:

• Overhead ceiling fans and air-conditioners in all tents and suite.
• Rock pool - perfect for relaxing and cooling off in mid-day.
• Elevated viewing deck at lodge water hole.
• Curio shop, Boma, and dining area.

Enjoy scenic views from the vantage of the elevated deck with an active water hole in close proximity. Whether it is around the fire in the boma or from the classically appointed dining room, savor Chapungu's culinary delights. Dinners are five courses and complimented by superb South African wines. This home from home experience will see every guest leave as a friend.

Boma dinners are a special occasion and an opportunity to select a bottle from the stock of fine wines and to savor the delicious fare around a log fire as you recount the day's game experiences before retiring to the lounge for a night cap, or to the comfort of your tent.

Game drives are undertaken in open safari vehicles every morning and evening with the camp's highly trained rangers and trackers. Walking safaris can also be arranged. At the end of the day, a hearty bushveld dinner is taken at the open boma next to the pool where one can relax by the crackling campfire, listening to the night sounds of Africa as the animals come to drink at the floodlit waterhole.

The staff take great pleasure in sharing with you their passion for hospitality and the excitement of dawn and dusk safaris in open Land Rovers, ensuring close and unrestricted encounters with the Thornybush wildlife. Enjoy the gentle nurturing of an Elephant calf by its mother or a close encounter with a Lioness and her cubs. The more adventurous are encouraged to join the experienced game ranger on a walk as he interprets Africa's footprint.
