Accommodation

Relive a bygone era...

The famous Victorian explorer Henry Morton Stanley who immortalized the words Dr Livingstone, I presume? wrote these words in his expedition journal:

"For the traveler who is a true lover of wildlife; where can she be found in such variety as in Africa; where is she so mysterious, fantastic and savage; where are her charms so strong her mood so strange"

Now modern day adventurers can journey in the footsteps of the great explorers and rediscover an era of private safari expeditions into the heart of Africa by sleeping under the skies with only canvas to separate themselves from the dangers of the South African bushveld.

Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp is tastefully furnished in old-world colonial splendor and offers safari enthusiasts an atmosphere reminiscent of the style and class of that bygone era complete with great cuisine and old fashioned service.

Chapungu essentials:

Eight luxury en-suite tents (16 guests) Overhead ceiling fans and air-conditioners in all tents Rock pool Curio shop, boma and dining area Wine cellar No children under 12 years Air-conditioned
