  • 4 Comfortable En-Suite Tents
  • Manyeleti Game Reserve
  • True african big five safari
  • Award winning & excellent rated

Pungwe is situated in the remote and undeveloped southern portion of the Manyeleti Reserve, on the northern border of the Sabi Sand Reserve and the eastern border of the Kruger National Park. We are fortunate to have unfenced boundaries with both of these iconic reserves, allowing for free movement of animals between the three reserves.

Manyeleti is renowned for its large concentrations of game and relatively low levels of development guaranteeing exceptional game viewing with minimal vehicle densities.If exclusivity is the true definition of luxury then with only 4 en-suite meru-styled tents, Pungwe offers the kind of intimacy one only finds in a truly unique authentic safari camp.

The thatched roofs over each of the large tents ensure that the interiors remain cool in summer and mild in winter. The en-suite bathrooms with their free-standing hot showers, large baths, flushing toilets and intricately designed basins provide all the creature comforts one expects. Each of the tents offers either twin or king-size options under four-poster style mosquito nets, providing protection and an ambience reminiscent of a by-gone era, further enhanced by the soft glow of lanterns. Our food is wholesome and often cooked over an open fire using locally sourced fresh produce.

We do cater for vegetarian requirements and although remote and off the grid, the luxury of ice is always available.Pungwe Safari Camp has been operating on the same site for over 24 years offering memorable safaris of real value to our guests. At Pungwe our ethos is to deliver a truly authentic safari experience with limited impact on the environment. We believe that the essence of any safari is best captured in the sights, sounds and smell of the bush and we endeavour to create an environment in which these elements take centre stage so that our guests have a life-altering experience.
