Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge

Explore South Africa

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.

My husband actually got very emotional leaving Chitwa. He was not only overwhelmed with the overall safari experience, but he could not get over the warm staff and impeccable service we received during our stay there.

Spacious living space. It was incredible to have a giant watering hole on the property, seeing animals all day long. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to make us feel special on our honeymoon. Only issue was that it was a bit noisy at night given the animals were still out and about - also found a bunch of insects in the room in the evening.
