Accommodation Options

This package is based upon mid range accommodation at Chisomo Safari Camp
Chisomo Safari Camp is tucked deep in the Big Five Karongwe Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger area of South Africa, offering an unrivalled African safari experience where the warm atmosphere, friendly staff and fine cuisine compliment the excellent Big 5 game viewing. Chisomo (which means “blessings”) combines the warmth and vibrancy of a Safari, exuding a true feeling of being in a bygone era in the Africa wilderness.

Situated under the shade of towering knob thorns and Jackleberry trees, the camp accommodates 44 guests in 22 luxury tented suites draped in white linen. Overlooking the magnificent view of the Makhutsi River, guests often have the opportunity to spot the Big 5 from their own decks, not to mention on the morning or evening game drives. The tented suites are fully equipped with mini bar fridges, tea and coffee making facilities, toiletries, hair dryers and personal safes. The friendly staff at Chisomo Safari Camp ensure that guests are given personal attention and service at all times. During the day, guests may relax at the pool or retire to one of the beautifully decorated, spacious lounges to absorb the splendid surroundings.
