Chacma Bush Camp offers the perfect big five safari experience in 8000 hectares of undulating landscapes dotted with rocky outcrops. This intimate camp in the Maseke Balule Game Reserve sleeps a total of 10 people, and thus offers an authentic and personal safari experience. Deep caves on the traverse and the Olifants River coursing through the region provide the perfect diverse landscape for game drives. A small waterhole is neatly positioned in front of the swimming pool and outdoor area; and is frequented by elephant herds. A swimming pool with stone decking overlooks the waterhole so guests can relax on the sun lounger or under the lapa and watch plains game filter down to drink.
Duration: 3 - 6 days
During your stay at Chacma Bush Camp you will enjoy daily game drives, sundowners sessions and uncover secret viewing spots in the Maseke Balule Game Reserve, an unexplored and wild wilderness area. You will have the option of enjoying a combination of outdoor activities and taking advantage of the host of facilities that the lodge has to offer.
Each day you will be treated to a morning and evening game drive. Morning game drives typically depart between 5am - 6am, depending on the season. There will always be a pre-drive coffee on offer as well as another coffee break in the wilderness during the drive. Evening game drives begin anywhere between 3:30pm - 4:30pm again, depending on the season. The drive includes a sundowner stop before continuing into the darker hours. Each drive will be around 3-4 hours long.
Upon request, Chacma can arrange a special sundowner session or bush breakfast which usually takes place on the banks of the Olifants River or on a rocky outcrop overlooking the reserve.
Other activities on offer are bird watching, boma dinners around the campfire and walks to the "koppie" behind the camp where you can take in scenic vistas.
