Great for families with young kids
It's a lovely place. We stayed in the house (2 bedrooms and vast living) for two nights; it has the huge advantage of private game drives. For an 8 year old and a 13 year old, the combination of two game drives a day (early morning and late afternoon), a private swimming pool and boy-friendly food made Chitwa a winner. The guides - "Surprise" is superb - know the concession and all of its secrets intimately. They keep it safe, too. Spend the big money. Enjoy. Take your kids. Stayed April 2016, travelled with family

Best Christmas Ever - Big 5
We saw all members of the big 5 and many more in our first 48 hours - so close and so exciting!
Excellent venue, lovely staff and great food. The staff choir welcomed us to the Lodge and sang on Christmas Eve and Day - special memories are made of this! Room 1 is enormous and private with big deck and plunge pool overlooking the many animals in the lake. Hali and Moses our ranger and tracker are the most talented and knowledgeable professionals on the planet and although guests would have felt safer with a gun on the Land Rover for our road trips it wasn't needed. We will be back!

We had a perfect vacation at Chitwa. Our hosts - Kevin, Melanie, Chantel and Stephan were spectacular. The food, the accommodations, the game drives were all well beyond our expectations (which I would describe as very high!) We can only hope that we get the opportunity to visit this amazing place again. Thank you!
