Pungwe exceeded all our expectations: the location, the camp, the tents, the food, the game drives and the staff. Having no fences added to the atmosphere and authenticity of Pungwe - buffalo were chased away as we walked to our tents safely escorted by our ranger.
The game vehicle drives (complete with tracker) were exciting and even warm after dark due to the blankets provided. Game was abundant: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra to name but a few. Birds too many to name and a real life-time privilege was the sighting of a pangolin. We even got off the truck for a closer look at this most unusual creature.
Meals were home cooked and plentiful. On the menu was delicious bread and cakes baked on site, South African specialities and filling breakfasts.
The tents were clean and spacious, the beds were very comfortable complete with a hot water bottle - a second pillow would be nice.
The only inconvenience was the lack of hot water on our first night but this was rectified on day two.
On reflection, a really excellent bush camp experience at affordable rates - we'd love to return in the near future.More
