Activities at Chitwa Chitwa
- Morning & Afternoon/Evening Game Drives
- Guided Nature Walks
- Village Visit & Cultural Encounter
- Bird watching
Lying in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve puts Chitwa Chitwa in the front row for some of the best game viewing in the region. Guests are treated to sightings of the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – on an almost daily basis. Wild dogs range through Chitwa’s concession, and you can expect to see a wealth of other wildlife – antelope, giraffe, hyena and zebra. The Kruger’s long dry winter is usually best for unrestricted game viewing but the rainy summer months have an inescapable charm. The landscape is lush and green, many antelope give birth and the bird watching goes from great to incredible.
Morning game drives are followed by nature walks with armed guides and good old fashioned armchair game viewing from the comfort of the lodge’s viewing deck. Afternoon drives return to camp in the evening with the aid of a spotlight, picking out unusual nocturnal animals on the prowl. Visits to a local village on the other hand provide an opportunity to interact with the region’s Shangaan people, famous for their animal-tracking skills.
