What a fabulous destination for a fruitful safari experience & thoroughly relaxing accommodation. We had a fabulous guide & tracker (Harly & Moses) who were incredibly knowledgeable & highly skilled. They were also great fun & the game drives were really enjoyable. We felt very fortunate & managed to see elephants, leopards, lions, rhinos, hippos, Buffaloes, hyenas, giraffes, wild dogs... More

I can't thank the staff enough for the excellent job that they did. All of the staff were kind and courteous and went the extra mile to make sure our stay was even better than we could have imagined... thank you Pinkie for babysitting the Children! All of the staff showed exceptional knowledge about the local wildlife and were able... More

This is a lodge with a artistic flair. The staff are nice and Chantal and Stephan run a nice lodge. The animals when we were there were plentiful. The room was lovely. The deck is painted black so it does get hot, so wear your sandals if by the pool. The wifi could be better but you are in the... More

My husband took me to Chitwa Chitwa for our anniversary, we had an amazing time. The accommodation was great. We could see the wildlife from the comfort of our own room. The staff were friendly, foods great. Our guide Suprise was incredible and we saw the big five and much more. Would highly recommend this adventure

Chitwa Chitwa is situated in the Sabi area which is known for their Leopards. That aspect didn't disappoint as it rarely does in that region! The Leopard sightings are like no other in South Africa. The lodge however, doesn't live up to the standard of some of the others in the area. The only really good points were the rooms... More

My husband and I were here celebrating our wedding anniversary and what a truly remarkable experience! They made it so incredibly romantic for us and we also had the best game viewing experience. We saw everything we wanted to see, the big 5 plus more and our guide Surprise was amazing. Leo and Claudia made sure our stay was nothing... More

MY wife and I were overwhelmed with the class that Chitwa Chitwa presents to its guests. The lodges, the food, the service, the twice daily game drives all AWESOME! We would go back there in a heart beat.

We are yearning to return to Chitwa Chitwa. We had such an unforgettable time last June when we were guests of Claudia and Leon and their beyond excellent staff. We hope to finalize arrangements soon and take my mother-in-law with us to have an experience of a lifetime. Not a week goes by that I do not think of either... More

We enjoyed a fantastic 5 day Safari at Chitwa. After a rather long, dusty drive by transfer (main roads before getting to Sabi Sands Gate have not been paved by the government), we arrived to our personal oasis - Chitwa Chitwa. Claudia and Leon, the managers, could not have been more welcoming and gracious. We were given a welcome drink... More
