Luxury safari camp in the heart of the Karongwe Game Reserve

Nestled within the bushveld of the Karongwe Game Reserve, overlooking the Makhutsi River, is the opulent Chisomo Safari Camp. Chisomo, which means ‘blessings’, offers guests an authentic and luxury-centred African safari experience in tented suites perched on wooden decks. Guests can enjoy spectacular sightings of the Big 5, with early morning and late afternoon excursions in open 4×4 safari vehicles, conducted by the reserve’s experienced guides and trackers. The Karongwe portfolio also cares about the environment with a commitment to wildlife conservation and uplifting local communities. With exciting helicopter flights through the magnificent Olifants Gorge, relaxing spa treatments at the Thera Naka Spa, or hiking up Beacon Rock, Chisomo Safari Camp provides visitors with the perfect combination of adventure and luxury during their stay.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Kruger Central

Like the rest of the park, Kruger Central enjoys rainy summers and dry winters. During the summer months (November to February), the area is lush with greenery and a spoil of baby animals, which makes it a fantastic time of year for a photographic safari. The winter months (May to August) allow for easily spotting animals, due to vegetation thinning out and water sources being scarce.


Safari Suites

Each of the 22 luxury tented suites is perched on wooden decks overlooking the Makhutsi River. Rooms are equipped with 2 twin beds that can be converted into a king-sized bed with crisp linen and draped in mosquito netting. The en-suite bathroom comes with free toiletries and a shower.
