Accommodating a total of 10 people in thatch chalets that have been designed to echo the natural ambience of the reserve, Chacma is a family-friendly camp that offers its guests an authentic and intimate safari experience. Guests can look forward to up-close sightings of the Big 5 during guided early morning and afternoon game drives or from the waterhole found under the camp’s patio and pool deck area. Watching the sun set over the wilderness while enjoying sundowners from a lookout point is the perfect way to celebrate your South African adventure.
Best time to go to Greater Kruger Region
The best time to spot wildlife in the Greater Kruger Region is during the dry season, which typically falls between May and September. This wintertime season offers the best opportunity to spot the wildlife as the animals are drawn to the waterholes and other sources of water and the vegetation is less dense. During this time, the days are warm and the nights are cooler. The summer months have more rainfall and the green landscapes provide a stunning backdrop for photos. Plenty of young animals and their predators are present and bird watching is particularly enjoyable.
Steenbok Chalet is located next to the main area and sleeps 4 people in a large double bed and 1 sofa bed. Fitted with an expansive bathroom, the main bedroom flows through to a furnished patio that offers a direct view of the waterhole.
Grysbok Chalet has 2 separate bedrooms, both equipped with crisp linen and mosquito netting. The first sleeps 2 adults in a double bed and the other 2 children in a bunk bed. The chalet features an en- suite bathroom, a large indoor shower and a veranda overlooking the pool.
Klipspringer Chalet is perfect for families or friends travelling together. Sleeping a maximum of 4 adults or 2 adults and 4 children, this chalet has 1 king-size bed, a sleeper couch and 2 stretcher beds. The chalet offers a view of the wilderness and an en-suite bathroom with an outdoor shower.
