Fantastic lodge. Personal service. Nothing was too much effort. Staff went out of their way to make our anniversary one to remember. Rooms are spacious and gorgeous with own plunge pool. Rangers extremely knowledgable. Overall a wonderful experience.

My wife and I were more than surprised at the accommodation's and professionalized service we received, on what was one of the greatest trips of our life. The lodge and people made our safari unforgettable. We recommend this experience to anyone looking for the real deal. Hats of to Hali, Moses, Thalo and the rest of the staff.

An African Safari has always been on the top of my list! In October, a group of eight friends journeyed to the land of Chitwa Chitwa. Up every morning at sunrise, and then out again near sunset, in the Rover, with guide, Hali and tracker, Moses, ( we highly recommend them) up close and personal with the BIG 5. Each... More

We spent four nights at Chitwa Chitwa in November. It was our first safari experience and we loved every minute of it. The lodge is beautifully decorated and the suites are fab, its location on a large water hole is perfect for deck safari. We enjoyed the food and the hospitality. The staff could not do enough for you and... More

My wife and I stayed at Chitwa Chitwa in mid November for my 50th birthday. Really I can not say enough about this lodge and it really was a trip of a lifetime. The accommodation is superb, both spacious and comfortable with an amazing outdoor space with private plunge pool and sitting area. The food was great-especailly my porcupine birthday... More

Wow what can I say. The glossy & slick photos on chitwa's website do not do this lodge justice. The place is just as beautiful, but the photos don't capture Claudia & Leon's (the managers) warmth and hospitality. You don't feel like you are staying in a hotel, you feel like you are staying in their home. The lodge has... More

This is our second visit to Chitwa Chitwa in a little over 2 years. The site provides comfortable (and occasionally slightly quirky) accommodation in a number of lodges arranged round the edge of a large waterhole/lake. The rooms are comfortable, well-appointed and spacious with access to a deck area with views over the waterhole. Sightings of hippos in and around... More

My husband and I just returned from Chitwa Chitwa less than a week ago, and we consider this our trip of a lifetime!! We must say that Chitwa tolally exceeded our expectations! Everything from the accommodations, to the staff, and the food were top notched. The laundry service was also outstanding. Our ranger, Hali and his tracker, Moses made sure... More

My wife, sister, brother-in-law and I stayed here the second week of November this year. We had a fantastic holiday and would return without hesitation. The lodge is beautiful and very open. The common areas are great, and they all look out over the lake. Sitting on the observation deck with a cold beverage, we watched countless animals coming to... More

I would definitely recommend Chitwa Chitwa to anyone. A beautiful lodge overlooking a waterhole (where we saw 20 elephants, Lions, crocodile, hippo and plenty more wildlife without having to leave our rooms), with great service and world class food. Our drives (lead by our Neil who was an excellent guide and driver, and very friendly and informative) were also superb,... More
