Let the everydag life behind you and enjoy the fantastic park, welcoming staff and beautifull wildlife! An absolute must to stay and you have to experience this in South Africa. Good food, sleeping in a unique tent and friendly staff with a smile.

We did an excellent trip and I recommend it to all. The service is perfect. Personal is devoted. What tell about the room it is so different compared with regular hotel room. I would like to live a long time but my schedule was to tight. What privilege to live like that, so close to the nature. I consider myself... More

Excellent viewing and accomodation. Saw an amazing array of wildlife but will have to come back as we didn't see that elusive leopard!! Staff couldn't have been friendlier and the 'tent' - amazing!!!!

I highly recommend this camp for an African safari. The cabin rooms had tented sides but every amenity. The food was very good and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We saw lots of animals up close.

My husband and I stayed at the Chisomo camp for 2 days. The food is poor and not homemade and you have to be very careful with your personal belongings! My necklace has been stole during our stay and I must say I am very desappointed with the management team who clearly didn't care! We asked several times to check... More

Very nice tents, in the midst of Karongwe game resort. Food was brilliant and service also very good. The view from the tents is on a nice savannah where you can see Impala and Kudu grasing.The rangers were excellent and very informative. They showed us tracks of most animals and we tracked down the big 5. The game reserve is... More

As a family group of four adults we stayed at Chisomo Tented Camp in late August 2014. We all found it to be very comfortable with the 'tents' being very spacious and having most amenities except air-conditioning (not needed at our timing). The grounds are manicured lawns around the tents and the main reception and meals/bar buildings alongside a riverbed.... More

If you looking for an experience where you feel you are sleeping under the stars, in the wilderness and still having all the comforts of a modern hotel room...then Chisomo it is. While they are said to be one of the 4* properties in the karongwe portfolio, I felt more like a 5* service was being delivered everyday. From the... More

We stayed at Chisomo for 2 nights on the long weekend of 15th June, and we were blown away with the standard of hospitality and the luxury of our tented accommodation for such an affordable price. The drive from Johannesburg was exhausting, with then potholed road leading up to the Karongwe national park leaving us irritated and tensed.Upon arrival we... More
