We spent 2 nights at Chitwa where Claudia and Leon are the joint managers. You are met on arrival, in our case by Claudia, and all is explained, both spent 10 years working for SA airline and later several years in Indonesia. They provide a superb level of service and you get to know them well at pre dinner drinks. Nothing is too much trouble. Our bags were "lost" by Federal Air and besides helping us with toiletries, Leon took it has his personal mission to track the bags down and get them to us. Good tip if flying Fed Air check that bags are on plane with you.
Our Ranger Neil and his tracker Rodney were both excellent. Great knowledge and made the vist all the more interesting - the big 5 were all seen !
I would highly recommend Chitwa !!
