The phrase “hidden gem” is not used very often, but since not many safari-aficionados know about Chacma Bush Camp, it certainly fits the description. It’s is on the smaller size, and in a secluded spot within Maseke Balule Game Reserve, which bumps it up to the top of the list if you want absolute privacy.
Chacma’s perimeter is hugged by a flush of Mopane woodlands which is a major drawcard for a wealth of birds that can be heard cheering you on throughout the day. Aside from the surrounding bush, there's a natural waterhole in front of the camp where animals can find their much-needed replenishment.
Elephants, bushbuck, kudu and plains game are frequent visitors here, and if you sit quietly out on the viewing deck or near the pool, they’ll wander up even closer. This is what you will love most about Chacma. You don’t have to venture far to experience the wonders of the bush, and it’s moments like these that make staying at smaller camps so memorable.
Once you are ready to step away from the comfy deck chairs, guided bush walks, and 4x4 game drives top the daily agenda at Chacma.
