Chacma Bush Camp daily safari drives through the Maseke Balule Game Reserve, along the Olifants River and optional bushveld walks within the 20,000-acre grounds, allow you to see the big five from close-proximity of the off-road vehicles.

At Chacma Bush Camp relax to the rhythm of the African bushveld, where elephants and giraffe roam in the rocky terrain; lions hunt at will and leopards lounge around in the in Mopane woodlands.

At Chacma Bush Camp you can take a dip in the pool while watching the local wildlife drink from the adjacent waterhole.

Have a bush breakfast at the break of dawn and a refreshing sundowner by dusk; spot the stars by night and the varied bird-life by day. Spend time in the late afternoon sun reading on the relaxing deck-chairs, or climb the koppie to take-in the breathtaking view. Enjoy local cuisine served in the lapa then sit around the fire by moonlight sharing stories in the boma.

Chacma Bush Camp Sleep in one of only three well-appointed en-suite family-friendly chalets, comfortable beds surrounded by mosquito-nets with an air-con system and tea and coffee making facilities are available in each room. A patio at your chalet gives a view of the water-hole meaning you can watch the elephants drinking while you sip on your evening G&T or morning coffee, no better start to a day.

Guest may enjoy relaxing afternoons in and around the outdoor swimming pool area of the lodge. Unforgettable dining is served under the lapa or around the campfires.
