Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge

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.

Game drives were amazing, staff was amazing. My wife maybe would have preferred more "upscale" contemporary lodging but I loved it.
