Our time at Chisomo Safari Camp was a great experience. The accomodation is extraordinary in its best meaning. We liked it very much. Service and Catering was very good and we want to Highlight the amiability of all members of the staff. 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.

we spent three nights in this excellent camp - our advice is to spend few more nights to fully appreciate and enjoy the facillities on offer and the beautiful surronding - the knowledge and experienced of the rangers offer you an incrediable wildlife experience

What a pleasant surprise! The new rooms are beautiful, the food was great, the staff were brilliant. A huge change from the last time I was there a number of years ago. As a guide, I was dreading the reaction of the guests as in my last visit therooms were dark, and the food was not great. But how refreshing... More

The place is excellent with very nice staff. My special thanks to the chef for arraigning for us the halal food. The game reserve have plenty of animals , the game drives are well organized and to ensure you come across at least some of the big 5. leopard are the difficult bit to spot on the game drive

We spent 6 days at Chisomo Safari Camp, close to Kruger and awesome Blyde Canyonin Northern South Africa. Food was just amazing. Simple and delicious South African Food (Pap, morogo, Pojtie,etc). Our Tracker (Reimondo) and Ranger (Solomon) were able to find all the great 5 (Rhino, Elephant, Leopard, Lion and Bufalo) and we were lucky to spot a Honey Badger... More

From our arrival to our departure the whole team were welcoming, helpful and made it an unforgettable experience. The "tents" were outstanding, the food was delicious and the drives were informative. We all loved the game drives with Sam & Evans who shared their extensive knowledge and good humour, despite the rain. We didn't manage to see the leopard, though... More

My tour guide Pieter said we were going to be sleeping in tents! you can well imagine my shock & surprise to see the "tents" ... true luxury! When I sent pictures to my kids they said "that's NOT a tent". My stay at Chisomo was an unforgetable experience. The accommodations, food, game drives, ambience were more than I expected.... More
