Chitwa Chitwa was absolutely stunning from start to finish. The lodge is in a beautiful setting next to a huge watering hole. The views around the lake from our suite were breathtaking. From elephants, impala, wart hogs to buffalo, leopard and much more. The lodge is unique with 8 suites and the Chitwa House. The suites are large and very...

It's a beautiful hotel in a stunning setting. You genuinely are 'in the bush'. The rooms, food, attention to detail are all first rate. And the game drives are astonishing. We saw everything...and a whole lot more that you could never anticipate. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.

After landing on a tiny air strip we were met by Leon (one of the Chitwa hosts) who drove us to the beautiful Chitwa Chitwa lodge. Even on the drive back to the lodge we saw a giraffe! On arrival to the lodge we were met by the lovely Claudia who is the other host at Chitwa. The welcome 'chat'...

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon, and enjoyed every second. The location is just amazing - overlooking a watering hole which allowed us to just sit and watch many animals roaming around. Our room was large and stunning (they lit the fire each night which made it so cozy and romantic), the food was delicious...

Our host were the best. Our Tracker and guide also. The lodges are located in the middle of the reserve, you spend your day in the wilde with giant animal. Easy to spot an elephant while you having breakfast. The lodges are large, well decorated and comfy. The food is excellent. Probably the best reason to wake up really every...

Chitwa Chitwa Lodge was exceptional -- the two bedroom suite was spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. We loved having a big deck with private pool where we were able to enjoy lunches while looking out over the big lake behind and see a variety of animals come and go including the resident hippos. The food was very good, and they hosted...
