Chacma Bush Camp
Maseke Balule Game Reserve, South Africa

Chacma Bush Camp is a small and intimate African safari camp located right in the heart of the game-rich Maseke Balule Game Reserve in South Africa.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Early morning game drives are worth getting up for at Chacma Bush Camp, especially when some of the best sightings are seen at first light. Top it off with an evening drive, and you’ll double your chances of seeing all the members of the Big Five in one day. 
  • Add in a leisurely guided bush walk after breakfast. It’s great for picking up on things you might have missed on your game drives, and even better for burning off the extra kilojoules.
  • Nothing beats an afternoon dip in the outdoor swimming pool with stone deck overlooking the waterhole. Kick back and relax on the sun-lounger as thirsty birds and antelope filter down to have a drink.
  • Many elephant herds also frequent the waterhole. For your safety and peace of mind, there is an unobtrusive elephant fence that keeps these curious pachyderms from ambling too far into the camp. 
  • Chacma Bush Camp is all about the experience of simply being in the bush and being well looked after. You’ll find the staff attentive and always happy to go the extra mile during your stay. 

Your Chacma Bush Camp Experience

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. Expert tracker-guides are always at your side to reveal the true secrets of the South African bush. Get up close and personal with a variety of African critters and birds, along with the usual Big 5 suspects to complete your experience.
