I expected to go to this reserve to view wild animals in their natural habitat, but I was not prepared for the incredible diversity and beauty of what awaited us.
Upon minutes of arrival we were treated to the spectacular view from the lodge's deck where the lake beyond was home to hippos, crocodiles, elephants and buffalo.
Our daily outings were filled with excitement as we came within feet of Lyons, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos and much more.
Because there were two of us birders in the group, our amazing tracker Halli, made it a point to start our days looking for birds . He also escorted us on foot on a few outings where we were able to immerse ourselves in the natural surrounding and observe close to 100 species of birds in one week!
The staff is top notch, and Leo and Claudia, the lodge managers were attentive to our every need.
Our suite was both luxurious and very comfortable, and many afternoons were spent observing wild animals from our private pool and deck. What a trip!
Thank you Chitwa Chitwa!
