Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge is situated on the banks of one of the largest lakes of the exclusive 63,000 hectare Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park. The ideal location and design of the camp means that guests can be assured of superb game viewing from the main lounge and dining while remaining inconspicuous to the groups of wild animals assembling at the water's edge - the perfect environment to relax, unwind and absorb the sights, sounds and scents of Africa.
Each of the 6 individually decorated suites opens onto a private deck with a plunge pool that overlooks the nearby lake - a popular drinking hole for a wealth of wildlife. The spacious, luxury suites include a bath-tub, indoor and outdoor shower, fireplace, minibar, fan, hairdryer, tea coffee making facility and an iPod docking station.
The lodge also offers a library, gym, swimming pool, curio shop and spa. Chitwa Chitwa welcomes families allowing children from age of 6 onwards on game drives. For the younger children, dedicated activities are provided.
Situated in the northern area of the Sabi Sand and access is via the Gowrie Gate near the Orpen Gate of the Kruger National Park. A direct flight from Johannesburg takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Direct flights also from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (35 minutes flying time) and Eastgate Airport (Hoedspruit) with 25 minutes flying time. Road transfer from Johannesburg to Chitwa Chitwa takes approximately 5 hours or a scenic 3 hour drive from Nelspruit.
The Chitwa experience offers memorable game drives and bush-walks under the guidance of professional rangers and trackers. Trips to the Dixie village are available for guests to experience the Chitwa Trust initiatives.
Read what our previous clients thought of Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge
We noticed almost everyone had rolling luggage for the small planes - this was frustrating for us as we were lugging our non rolling luggage for the entire trip based on your guidance. It does not seem like this is a huge issue (or was not on our flights). Please also reinforce to folks to get RAND at the ATMS before going to Chitwa Chitwa. We forgot to do so…
Very luxurious. Service and accomodations were amazing. Rooms were huge, clean and comfortable. The guide and tracker were awesome, so many great things on the safari.
