Chacma Bush Camp has only three chalets, each of which can be configured to suit guests’ needs. Chalets are built from natural stone and thatch, which provides a cooling effect during the hot summer months and a sense of warmth during the winter. Each of the rooms is similar in its decor, amenities and finishings but differs slightly in its layout and views. All rooms have air-con, plenty of cupboard space and en-suite bathroom with shower.
Klipspringer sleeps a family of 6 people and has an outdoor shower; Steenberg chalet sleeps 3 people and is next to the main area with a direct view of the waterhole; and Grysbok chalet has two separate rooms sleeping 2 adults and 2 children. Chalets are all just a few meters from the main area of camp, making it ideal for multigenerational family travel.
The main area of camp comprises three relaxation spots which include the boma, dining area and pool/patio deck. The pool and patio provide a tranquil area for relaxing during the day, while the boma is ideal for catching up around the campfire.
At Chacma, guests can expect a maximum level of comfort while being surrounded by wild, rugged surroundings.
The Klipspringer chalet is the largest chalet and has an outdoor shower with en suite toilet. It sleeps four adults or two adults and four children. The bed configuration comprises a King size bed/converter, sleeper couch and two stretcher beds. This room is the first room you will see upon entering the property. The open plan chalet is ideal for families sharing and has a view of the swimming pool, the wilderness and main lodge area in front.
The Grysbok chalet is adjacent to Klipspringer. This chalet has two separate bedrooms with a large indoor shower and en suite bathroom. The main bedroom is perfect for two adults, and the smaller bedroom has bunk beds ideal for two children. The view is of the wilderness, pool and main area.
The Steenbok chalet has an expansive bathroom, main bedroom flowing through to a patio. This chalet can sleep four people and has exquisite direct views of the waterhole. It adjoins the main area and is not a freestanding chalet like Klipspringer and Grysbok.
Chacma Bush Camp is ideally located in the Maseke Game Reserve, a completely off-the-beaten track private reserve teeming with wildlife. Explore untouched landscapes with rocky outcrops, diverse vegetation and the Olifants River.
The 8000 hectare private game reserve shares open borders with the Kruger National Park, which means wildlife can roam freely throughout. The undulating landscape is home to the Olifants River just south of camp, while old mica caves dot the landscape throughout.
The area is a big five reserve and the bonus? It’s a relatively unknown reserve but certainly doesn’t lack in terms of sightings. Less people, more wildlife!
