What do you expect at a safari lodge? Well we got more than we asked for. Our excellent trackers Surprise and Howard managed to find every animal except the illusive pangolin. But you must face the facts that Wild Africa is a dog eat dog life and in our 4 nights here we were treated to nature in the raw. We witnessed to saddest but factual side to what goes on here. There are herbivores and consumers. And of course the consumers must eat other consumers. We saw it all.
The accommodation was terrific. Each lodge different to the others and creatively decorated by Maria the artistic eccentric proprietor, who is lovely if you are lucky enough to meet her and her husband Charls. The hosts Claudia and Leon are lovely, helpful, hospitable and professional and contribute to the memorable stay at the lodge. The staff are so helpful. Food is OK.
If you are reading this you are probably researching which lodge to stay at. You won't be disappointed at Chitwa Chitwa.
Thank you Claudia, Leon, Surprise, Howard, Coconut, Victory, Tronic, Dihno.
