The area surrounding Chitwa Chitwa, known as the Sabi Sands Game private game reserve is a home teeming with residents. The diversity we have is unparalleled and we have the fortunate ability to view multiple different species of animals including the world renowned Big 5.
For those who need a refresher, the Big 5 are
These amazing animals draw millions of people from all over the globe to Africa in search of seeing them all and here at Chitwa Chitwa we see them not only in their natural habitat but are also able to interact with them on a more personal level, our relationship with them has transcended that of fear and they have indeed accepted us into their most personal of spaces as you can see in the images below.
In addition to the Big 5 we are able to see many of the more well known plains game such as
Impala and Zebra
And many many more spectacular wild creatures.
Chitwa Chitwa is situated right on the banks of the largest single body of water in the Sabi Sands and as a result all of the animals we have mentioned as well as many others pay us a visit right on our own doorstep as you can see in the images below.
As well as the visitors we have a few residents that grace our watering hole at Chitwa Chitwa such as the small family of Crocodiles and the many many Hippos that inhabit the water, or even the multitudes of Waterbuck and Nyala that call the areas surrounding the lodge home.
The bird life in the area is astounding and we are able to view multitudes of stunningly coloured as well as interestingly shaped birds. Small and large grace our area in droves and add even more interest to our already action packed Safari experiences!
