Went to Chitwa in 2013. The tracker and ranger (unfortunately forgot the names) were hands done the BEST we've experienced in Greater Kruger National Park area since 2013. We saw everything we requested and more. Wild dog pack sighting and tracking was the most memorable. Food quality could have been better (nothing wowed us, perhaps more lighting in the dining...

Chitwa Chitwa exceeded our expectations. We knew we were staying at a luxury resort, but had no idea it would be this 'once in a lifetime' experience. I cannot say enough. Our room was impeccable and maintained several times daily. The daily bush rides were always different and always fun and exciting (Surprise was so much fun as out guide).... More

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!

Even the step up to four poster bed had a ramp! Somebody was always on hand to help... More
