    “Loved It”

    We were a family of four and stayed in the Charlsy Suite which has two huge bedrooms joined by a lounge, The whole room and bathrooms open onto an amazing deck with (cold) plunge pool overlooking the lake. The wildlife from Hippo to Elephant to Zebra that come down to the water is stunning. We woke one morning to the momentarily alarming, but stunning experience of a leopard sitting on our deck. The food, staff and whole ambience of the place was amazing. Far too much food, which we are paying for in the gym now ! The game drives were incredible from lion to leopard, rhino, giraffe, zebra, buffalo and even wild dogs. I did not expect our teenage children to be jumping out of bed at 5.30am, but they did. There was no shortage of amazing experiences interspersed with bush walks in the day and astronomy at night. Very comfortable with security and safety a primary concern. Expertly done. Would thoroughly recommend. An incredibly special trip.

    “Magnificent, Spectacular, Incredible!”

    I’m not sure I know enough superlatives to adequately describe Chitwa Chitwa, the team, the setting, surroundings and experience. It was over the top on every single level. If you are contemplating safari you MUST do it and you MUST stay at Chitwa Chitwa. This place in over the moon. The entire team that catered to us ( 6 in our party) was outstanding. The service they provided was impeccable. Truly flawless! You name it they provided it with grace, kindness, patience and sweet humor.
    Our ranger guide and tracker, Harley & Moses, were seasoned, knowledgeable, perceptive to our safari ‘wish list’, flexible, patient, and dedicated to us. They were passionate about the land, animals, Chitwa Chitwa and their service to us.
    The suites / accommodations were beautifully appointed and well taken care of.
    The food prepared by Oscar, Lucas and their teams was 5 star yummy. I mean every single morsel was scrumptious!
    KUDOS to the Chitwa Chitwa Team. You created my trip of a lifetime.

    “Luxuray Private Safari”

    I truly enjoyed my time at Chitwa Chitwa the people where incredible you truly felt apart of the people and got to know the ones catering to you on your safari. which made it very cool they paid very close attention to detail and without saying anything they would change something that I would have probably called and asked for. not one bad thing I could say. I was truly impressed with the management and how on hands they where I really liked that. this is a true Private reserve and the Best in south Africa. Thanks too the Chitwa Family

    Sadly we only stayed for one night. We were overwhelmed by the standard of the accommodation, food, and location overlooking the waterhole. The evening game drive was under par compared with other lodges, but the setup and presentation of sundowners on the drive was outstanding!
    It was a great privilege to observe the wildlife at closer proximity, whilst at the lodge, than we have experienced elsewhere in Sabi Sands.
    A great place to stay. Highly recommended!
