Chisomo Safari Camp is a shady river retreat offering luxury, tranquility and a close to nature experience with its 22 tents on stilts overlooking the Makhutswi River.
Wildlife is Africa`s heritage - and at Chisomo Safari Camp we nurture it. Our game drive and walk experience is a modern-day journey into the past when this expanse of pristine bushveld knew nothing else but a rich profusion of diverse game and virgin vegetation.
Our specially trained game rangers and trackers will take you on day and night drives in comfortable open four-wheel drive landcruisers.
Most of our rangers and trackers are Shangaan and bring to the game experience the richness of their culture and vast knowledge of nature. With their natural tracking abilities and Karongwe`s modern bush telegraph, our rangers will go out of their way to bring you as close to the Magnificent Seven (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, cheetah and African wild dog) as they possibly can.
On one game drive you may stop an arms-length away from a leopard napping after a kill, disembark and walk just metres away from a couple of cheetah or stop in the middle of a pride of lions, observing the king of the jungle watching over his frolicking cubs. At all times, care and consideration for both guests and wildlife is of utmost importance.
Guests can also relax at the pool, in-between their daily game drives or walks.
Breakfasts and lunches are normally served under a lapa overlooking the river, where guests can also enjoy drinks at their built-in bar.
Some nights you`ll enjoy sumptuous traditional African dishes in the thatched dining area, while other nights dinner will be served by candlelight next to the pool - or even at a unique bush dinner site, created especially for Hoyo Hoyo guests.
Accommodation at Chisomo Safari Camp:
All tents, with en-suite bathrooms, showers only, are facing the beautiful Makhutswe River and wildlife can be viewed from the decks as it emerges from the reeds for grazing. Kudu, Nyala and Bushbuck are as common a sight as elephant and even the elusive leopard.
On 1st January 2017, Karongwe Private Game Reserve will introduce a new conservation levy to the Karongwe Reserve. This levy is essential in the fight against chromalena, poaching, and many other activities that preserve the wildlife heritage of the Karongwe Reserve for future generations to come. Conservation levies are not included in the accommodation rates, and will be R40 per person and must be settled by the guest on departure at each respective lodge.
Traversing over the 9000 hectares of supreme African bushveld, Shiduli is home to the Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and Elephant) as well as a wealth of other creatures. Our open vehicle game drives are perfect for game viewing. Enjoy a sundowner while the sun sets over the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains.
The magnificent game viewing makes for perfect photographic opportunities; enjoy the view of the Lowveld from a kopje amid the lush vegetation, huge variety of trees and over 365 different bird species. Game drives are conducted with our qualified game rangers and Shangaan trackers who will share their vast experience of the African Bush and a chance to view Cheetah on foot.
