Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at chapunga tented Lodge in Thornybush and it was incredible. The wildlife was amazing, staff were the best, the rangers incredible, and best of the small size the other guests were all really friendly and engaging. Overall I truly couldn't fault the place.

This place is superb! I wish I could give it more than Five stars. Being in the middle of the national park is mesmerising enough but then to stay here is the cherry on top. The rooms are excellent, you have the feel of camping outside with the canvas walled huts but enough closure to feel comfortable aswell. The staff are superb. Our driver, Jaque, and tracker Aubrey, were so knowledgeable and within two drives we had already seen the big five. The food is also excellent, this was the one part we were most concerned about but it was extremely tasty and they catered to all needs. Overall this experience would have been amazing on its own but the camp just helped make it that extra little bit special and we would deffinitely return!

We spent three nights at the Chapungu Lodge and we were very satisfied by the quality of this hotel in the middle of the Bush. The whole venue is decorated with taste and very peaceful. The rooms are very well equipped: good beds, nice bathroom and individual terrace with a beautiful and peaceful view. The Chapungu team is very professional and always very careful with the guests. We were there to celebrate two birthdays and the kitchen team prepared a very nice surprise for us at the dinner: a tasty cake and a live show with dance and local songs. The morning and afternoon safari games were perfectly organized by our guide Kyle and the two trackers Victor and Oscar. They know the bush perfectly and did their best during our tree days to show us a maximum of animals. Thanks to Kyle's knowledges, we learned a lot about the wild live in the bush and had the chance to see the Big Five during our stay. The food is healthy, tasty and prepared with a lot of care by the kitchen team. The different setup and locations for the dinners are also very nice. The Spa treatments proposed at the lodge situated 10 minutes away from Chapungu are very professional. The Pool could be improved ( a bit small) but as this is not the main goal of a safari trip, this was not a big issue. A big Thank You to the all team who offered us some memorable moments in South Africa. We hope to have the pleasure to see you again soon.

Stayed in Chapungu Lodge, not the most luxurious I would think but all the more authentic for that. Great game rides, perfectly acceptable accommodation, friendly staff.

This was our first lodge when arriving in Africa. What a wonderful first impression. Our room was wonderful!!! We certainly did not expect such a room for first one in Africa. We had basket weaving lessons, a barbeque (braai), stew in a Potjies. (Dutch) and it was all wonderful. The staff was great. No negative comments apply to this woderful place. We were there as a part of a pretrip with Overseas Adventure Travel on a 37 Day trip. Wonderful!!!!
