It's All About The Experience


Pungwe is a small intimate authentic safari camp which brings back the essence of a true safari experience.  Our comfortable en-suite meru-style tents are reminiscent of days when safaris were all about the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. Our camp is about the bush, the animals, the unique experiences and the subsequent regaling of these by the iconic fireside.

It's All About The Feelings


Our guided morning walking safaris put you in touch with the bush, immerses you in your surroundings and enable you to encounter wildlife at a unique level. Our afternoon/evening game drives ensure that your sightings are up-close and personal.

The perfect combination to create lasting memories.


It's All About Being In The Bush


The 4 en-suite meru-styled tents at Pungwe offer simple elegant comfort, security, hot and cold running water for baths or showers and an exceptional feeling of truly being in the African bush. Only under canvas will you not only hear, but feel the roar of the lion, the throaty cough of a leopard and the Fiery Necked Nightjar celebrating the night.


It's All About Location, Location, Location


Situated in the southern part of the 22 000 hectare Big 5 Manyeleti Reserve,  Pungwe shares unfenced boundaries with two world renowned reserves, the Sabi Sand Reserve to the south and the Kruger National Park to the east, allowing for free movement of wildlife between the three reserves. This ensures that Pungwe's guests will be privy to some spectacular game viewing without having to share the sightings with numerous other visitors.


It's All About The People and The Community


Pungwe is proud of its links to the adjacent communities; all our wonderful staff are from the surrounding villages and are passionate about both the Manyeleti and Pungwe. Some of our staff have been here for over 20 years and are their wealth of knowledge of the reserve uniquely equips them to give you the experience of a lifetime. The camp purchases most of its supplies and services from local businesses and our support of local children at the Thorndale Creche is an ongoing project very close to our hearts.
