The notion of an undiscovered wilderness, far from the madding crowds is something every traveller on safari dreams about. Tucked away in a quiet corner of South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park, the Manyeleti Game Reserve is that dream made reality.

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

If exclusivity is the true definition of luxury then, with only four en-suite meru-styled tents, Pungwe offers the kind of intimacy one only finds in a truly unique authentic safari camp.

Situated in the southern part of the 22 000ha Big five 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.

Experience & Activities

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. Afternoon/evening game drives ensure that your sightings are up-close and personal.


  • Tents: With only four tents, Pungwe offers privacy and personal attention in an authentic African setting. The large en-suite tents offer either twin beds or large king-size beds, cotton linen, and fluffy duvets to luxuriate in. The en-suite bathrooms feature stand-alone showers, baths, flushing toilets, and African inspired hand basins.
