Chapungu Tented Camp
is located in the Thornybush Reserve
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated in the more busy northern part of the reserve, Chapungu Tented Camp is a mid-specification facility with modest public areas including a swimming pool and outside dining boma. Guest accommodation is in eight classic safari tents.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife is reliable year round. There are extensive spa facilities at the nearby Thornybush Game Lodge
The main potential downsides are the oudoorsy nature of the rooms and the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
Thornybush is a small fenced reserve which contains a relatively high density of camps and vehicles. We find that the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPrices
