The culturally significant Manyeleti Private Game Reserve occupies a prime ecological position, sharing unfenced borders and a wandering population of wild and wonderful animals with the Kruger, Sabi Sands, and Timbavati Game Reserves. Occupied and operated by the resident Mnisi tribe of the area, who themselves share generations worth of history with the area, and who now remain committed to promoting and protecting this exquisite summer paradise.
Pungwe Bush Camp is Manyeleti’s exclusive introduction to the magic and wild of the bush – a crisp, rustic environment, accentuated by the early morning bustle of Pungwe residents taking to the bush. Pungwe is a home-bound, traditional destination, where meals are still prepared over an open fire, and the thatched dining room plays an important part in the conversation, as guests soak in the amber glow of the setting sun.
Isolated from the flow of mainstream tourism in the area, Pungwe Bush Camp is a welcome seclusion, lost in the romantic haze of the beautiful Manyeleti Game Reserve – a timeless safari experience.
Pungwe Bush Camp offers accommodation in a series of quaint and cozy thatch roofed huts, complete with waterborne toilets, and hot and cold showers in en-suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, and scenic verandas attached to each room.
“Home to some of the best game viewing in South Africa”, Manyeleti Game Reserve offers its guests huge selections of lion, buffalo, leopard, elephant and rhino to spot on their excursions into the veld, as well as ample opportunities to enjoy thriving birdlife nestled among lush vegetation.
