"Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp - Bush life, bush adventure."

Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp

Chapungu is situated inside the Thorny Bush Nature Reserve and borders the World Renowned Kruger National Park. Bordering the Kruger National Park, Thorny Bush has taken down their fences and now forms part of The Greater Kruger National Park. Sporting the Big Five, Thorny Bush has become renowned for amazing game viewing, beautiful scenery and some of the best lodges in the safari industry.

Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp is an exclusive, small camp that has a very colonial feel. Inspired by an era of luxuriously camping in the bush, you can be assured of a unique, semi-private and special experience in the African bush. With outdoor barbeques, fine dining, beautiful scenery and some of the best game viewing in Africa, Chapungu is a safari favourite of many guests, so be sure to book early.


Chapungu has only eight luxury tented suites. Each suite is outfitted with the following:

  • Ceiling fans
  • A bushveld bath
  • Tea and coffee making facilities

Thornybush Nature Reserve has recently taken their fences down that was bordering the Kruger National Park and this has greatly increased the various number of game that one can view, including the Big Five, cheetah and hyena, antelope, giraffe, zebra, various lizards and more than 280 bird species for the avid birder's delight.
