DAY 1 – ARRIVAL AT CHITWA CHITWA, SABI SANDS
Enter the heart of the bush and your home for the coming four days. After dropping off your bags and settling into your ultra-luxury suite, we’ll outline the day ahead and enjoy a delicious lunch as a group. Before preparing for our first safari, there will be high tea served.
Heading out as the sun begins to descend, the landscape looks spectacular with rich golden hues spreading across the plains. In the late afternoon we make a stop for sundowner drinks and snacks to take advantage of this magical time of day, before continuing on into the evening as lions and leopards become increasingly active. On hand at all times is our expert photographer, who will help you get the most from the experience, offering advice on everything from camera settings to composition. Returning to camp we reflect on the afternoon’s adventure over a hearty evening meal before turning in to rest in preparation for an early start.
DAY 2 & 3 – GAME VIEWING & PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION
Over the following two days we awake each morning to the sounds of the bush and enjoy warm drinks and biscuits before heading out as dawn breaks across the reserve. After a successful morning tracking game and the sun ever higher in the sky, the animals take a rest and we too return to camp for a sumptuous breakfast, followed by photo editing sessions – the perfect opportunity to admire your morning’s work!
With our appetites sated and images in great shape it’s an ideal time to relax and enjoy the facilities on site at the lodge. Or, for the ever-adventurous, we offer guided walking safaris at no extra fee – a superb way to further immerse yourself in this magical environment. Following lunch, we head out once more each afternoon to see the animals arise from their slumber and search for prey. Every day we take sundowners in some choice destinations that offer memorable panoramas before returning to camp where a wonderful meal awaits us.
DAY 4 – FINAL SAFARI & DEPARTURE
This morning offers a final chance to see and experience the breathtaking landscape and abundant wildlife of Chitwa. Upon return to camp, we will enjoy our final breakfast as a group before packing up and leaving the lodge with happy memories and exceptional images.
