Chisomo Safari Camp is a shady river retreat offering luxury, tranquillity and a close to nature experience with its 22 tents on stilts overlooking the Makhutsi 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 bush veld knew nothing else but a rich profusion of diverse game and virgin vegetation.
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 Chisomo guests.
All tents, with en-suite bathrooms, showers only, are facing the beautiful Makhutsi 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.
