Fantastic place to get a true safari experience where one can relax and enjoy a bit of luxury. Lodges are comfortable truly allowing you to immerse yourself in a different world Morning and afternoon game drives ensure guests see a diverse range of animals.

We had a great time here in the Chisomo Safari Camp. Two amazing gamedrives included with enthusiastic guides, what we'll never forget! Perfect food and very nice people. This was one of our best memories of South Africa!

At our second day in South Africa we arrived at Chimoso Safari Camp. In the afternoon and at the next morning we had two game drivers with an excellent ranger and tracker. Within a few hundred meters we had seen Giraffes, but we also saw Impala, Kudu, Lions,etc. etc. Thanks to great tracking work we saw two Leopards. Both guys... More

With a bit of upgrading of the tents, this is the best bush experience we had. The amount of knowledge that our guide and tracker had was amazing! The manager went out of her way to accommodate my lactose intolerance and ensured that the food was dairy free. The children were also very welcome and the staff went out of... More

Fabulous place, excellent accommodation, Keenan the Head Ranger and Raemondo the tracker were fantastic and incredibly knowledgeable. We saw everything including a lion kill, 5 leopards and we walked with a cheetah. I went in Aug and I really implore you to bring warm clothes. I didn't have enough and had to buy a fleece and woolly hat. It can... More

Stayed 3 nights and saw all big 5. Service was excellent and rangers were committed, experienced and friendly. The food was a bit of hit and miss, some dishes great and others not. Ingredients not the best. However they saw to all our dietary requirements. The accommodation was magnificent, views over the river bed where we saw animals throughout. Only... More

'Great value for money"!! Excellent game viewing, as we saw just about every-thing barring a few nocturnal animals. Unfortunately no wild dog in the reserve, but always a spoil when one does sight them. It was a real treat walking into Cheetah, on two separate occasions. Comfortable accommodation, friendly staff and good South African cooking.

I stayed here for only 1 night, but it was so memorable! Great service, beautiful property and food, really nice accommodations, and the game drive with Sam was more than I could have hoped for. . . in 3 hours we watched a pride of 7 lions, a herd of elephants, saw zebras, giraffes, & assorted amazing antelope. I can't... More

This place is extremely well situated in the Limpopo Low veld with good temperatures and excellent animal spotting opportunities. The camp has large permanent luxury safari tents and the surroundings just tell you to relax. The staff and meals are great!
