Awesome 5 day stay
This is not a zoo, so everyone has a different experience. Ours was over the top. We had 5 lions kill a Cape Buffalo 100 yards from our bungalow at 4:00 AM. We can not say enough positive things about our guide Andres. He was Fantastic. I am sure some of the other guides are about as good but we think he was the best by far.

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.
Experience of a Lifetime!
We spent 4 amazing days in an amazing cottage with amazing guides and left with amazing memories! From the moment we were greeted to the moment of our sad departure, we were absorbed into the Chitwa gentility, knowledge and communal spirit. Considering we were geographically far from any urban area, the food and its presentation left us speechless. Chantel and Stefan manage this lodge to perfection, and we would return in a heartbeat!
