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

Our 4 day safari adventure at Chitwa was truly unforgettable and certainly the highlight of our 17 day African adventure. From the moment we arrived, Leon and Claudia welcomed us warmly and made us feel we were in for a very special treat. How right they were! The lodge and our private villa were fabulous. The ambience of the entire... More

Chitwa Chitwa could not have been nicer . The accomodatons were absolutely beautiful.. The food was amazing and plentiful. The game drives were awesome. The 2 managers of the resort, Claudia and Leon could not have been any nicer. They are very attentive to any special needs that you may have. I highly recommend this place to everyone !!

This is the second time we have been to Chirwa Chitwa and I would love to return again! Fabulous rooms and shared areas make you instantly relax, the staff are amazing, food and wine is good and the animal sightings excellent. We were lucky enough to get Surprise as our ranger and Ralph as our tracker. Surprise is fantastic, so... More

This was the last of 3 luxury stops on our magical honeymoon and we had clearly saved the best till last. From beginning to end the experience was magical. We arrived a little late but they had held the afternoon game drive for us. Nothing was too much trouble from beginning to end. We had the newest of the individual... More

Believe the superlatives! We had the most unbelievable time at Chitwa Chitwa in June 2014 as part of our honeymoon. This was our first time ever on safari and it totally exceeded any expectations we had. Minutes into our first game drive (with Hallie and Moses) seeing a leopard laying out have a snooze my husband turned to me and... More

I'll start by stating that the lodge and accommodations are spectacular, all set on the banks of fresh water reservoir. The banks are absolutely teaming with wildlife activity around the clock. In fact, my favorite experience at Chitwa was what they call the 'deck safari'. Whether we were on the main deck or on the deck outside our bungalow, we... More

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
