What a fabulous place this is... all the staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. The wildlife viewing was beyond our wildest dreams (pardon the pun).We did two safaris a day for four days and each and every one was fantastic. I knew when we first arrived, walked down to the huge decked bar area and a large herd of elephants wandered into view on the other side of the lake...we were in for a treat! We saw at least 24 species of mammals including 'the big 5' and at least 27 species of birds. It was heaven. Huge thanks to Harley and Moses our fantastic guide and spotter. We even saw a pair of leopards mating and a mum leopard feeding her cubs!... wildlife viewing doesnt get any better than that. Highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back again.
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

Wonderful and unforgettable experience
We spent four amazing days in Chitwa Chitwa and didn't want to leave. Stephan & Chantal made us very welcome and I have to mention the friendly Leah and Wilson the chef. Our guides were Andries and Betuel - they were friendly and knowledgeable about all the diverse creatures we encountered in the bush - the big five and lots of extras...! The rooms are large and well appointed and the staff ensure the safety of all the visitors without being patronising. The location is simply stunning, the wildlife plentiful and diverse, and the whole experience was outstanding - thank you Chitwa Chitwa...!
