The accomodation was impeccable, very comfortable and very clean. There was everything you need for a relaxing weekend. The staff were all very friendly and willing to help with anything. The game drives were amazing, the Rangers were very knowledgable in their field. I wish I could have stayed longer, I would definitely recommend a stay at Chisomo!

The accommodation is very relaxing. It's clean and comfortable, yet still has a camping and natural feel. The game drives are absolutely incredible and it's almost guaranteed that you'll see all of the Big 5. I highly recommend staying here and going on every game drive you possibly can. Wish I had been able to stay longer!

I spent two nights here in March 2015. The staff were professional, friendly and extremely helpful whenever I needed them. The rooms were clean, including spotless bathrooms. Best of all (and the reason I was there), the scenery and wildlife were spectacular. A small stream runs past the camp, and a herd of elephants walked along it one afternoon, right... More

Last but not least the Safari tours were unforgetable adventures due to the fact that the guides are... More

A genuine welcome and lovely accommodation in tents, with electricity! Although could do with another more accessible socket without taking out the very noisy fan (so noisy we missed the elephant moving through the camp in the morning!) the staff were very friendly and rooms cleaned of. Food at breakfast was okay but dinner was mixed but still okay. Lovely... More

We stayed for two nights at Chisomo and WOW! The staff were amazing, hugs and smiles from the moment we arrived, very informative, friendly and eager to please. The luxury tents were clean, spacious and romantic - we loved them. The highlight of the stay for us was Gus and Ramando (our guide and spotter) these two men were out... More

It is a pleasure to be out in the bush under canvas. This gives you the benefit of the nocturnal sounds. We were spoiled by some amazing sightings in the short span of two days (4 game drives). To see lions and leopards twice really special. Hats off to the staff who were always friendly and helpful.
