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

Just THE BEST
We went to Chitwa Chitwa on our honeymoon recently and we really loved it. The room was absolutely fantastic, just gorgeous décor and art. The bed was super comfy. The staff were all very courteous and friendly, all trying to be as helpful as they can. The safari guys are awesome, so enthusiastically finding you the animals you want to see - we saw all Big 5. Sunning myself by the waterhole each day, we saw animals all day whilst relaxing. The food was top notch. I can't recommend Chitwa Chitwa enough.
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!
