Chacma Bush Camp



Chacma Bush Camp, enviably located deep within the heart of the lesser-known Maseke Balule Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger, offers the perfect big five safari experience in 8000 hectares of undulating landscapes dotted with rocky outcrops. This family-friendly camp sleeps a total of 10 people, and thus offers an authentic and intimate safari experience close to the Olifants River. Deep caves on the traverse with flecks of mica make for a unique geology and game drives traverse over these diverse landscapes.

The camp’s perimeter is hugged by Mopane woodlands which are a major drawcard for a wealth of wildlife. Elephants, bushbuck, kudu and plains game are commonly spotted in these woodlands, and can be viewed from the comfort of the deck area surrounding the sparkling swimming pool. There’s a natural waterlogged area in front of camp which provides wildlife with the much needed replenishment needed during the heat of the day.

Evening times are spent swapping stories around the roaring campfire in the boma area, and dinners are spent indulging in traditional cuisine in the rustic lapa.

Enjoy daily game drives in this 8000 hectare reserve, and special excursions such as sundowners, bush breakfasts at the river and star gazing can be arranged.

Game Drives

Game drives take place in the 8000ha reserve comprising of mopane woodlands, the Olifants River and rocky terrain. Game drives will take place in the morning and evening, and rangers will stop for morning coffee breaks and evening sundowners.

Special Sundowners

Golden hour is a much celebrated event in the Kruger, and guests are encouraged to make the most of their safari by opting for the special/additional sundowner set-up.

For special occasions we can arrange a classic Melvill and Moon safari sundowner set-up on top of the lookout point, or in a clearing in the bushveld.
