Pungwe is a jewel in the Manyeleti game Reserve, Its a small intamate bush camp only 8 guests in total.
It is a totaly off the grid camp meaning no electricity even the fridges run on gas This gives it a wonderful remote authentic bush feel which is sometimes lost at the more luxurious lodges
It has 4 tented rooms When I say tented they are nice solid tents with a solid thatch roof structure over the tent ( see photos ) The shower water is heated with what they call heating donkey its a drum that has the water in heated by a log fire to deliver the hot water.
The main dinning /bar/lounge area is quite eunique as there is a permanent camp fire that burns next to the main dining area were you can grab a bush coffee brewed on the fire at any time.
The food was simple dew to the lack of electricity but it was tasteful and well varied
Game drives in the Manyaleti were fantastic and we saw everything.
If you want to unwind Pungwe is the place to be there is no wifi or cell signal but you do get intermittent reception when you are on gamedrive.More
