Overlooking dense bush, this charming camp (Chapungu is the Shona name for the Bateleur Eagle, the majestic bird that quarters the skies above this tented camp) is nestled deep in the bushveld of Thornybush.
Enjoy the elegance and style of a bygone era combined with all the trappings and convenience of modernity. Tranquil and intimate, the 8 en-suite air conditioned tents (built on wooden platforms) are washed with afternoon sunlight and colour, and offer outstanding bushveld views from their private decks, each with an outdoor bath. Situated a few minutes drive from Thornybush Game Lodge, where extensive Spa Treatments are available to all Chapungu Tented Bush Camp guests.
