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!

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...!

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
