Nestled in the unspoiled bush of the Sabi Sand lies a stylishly intimate game lodge – Chitwa Chitwa. Originally a private family retreat, Chitwa enjoys a place of pride on the banks of one of the largest lakes in the exclusive Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Allow your senses to be lured into a passionate balance of African chic and environmental harmony.
Relax in a haven of natural colours and beautiful textures that replicate the beauty of nature’s paintbrush and the serenity of the African bush. Each of the eight individually decorated retreats boasts a private plunge pool framed by a spacious timber deck overlooking the nearby lake – a popular drinking hole for our wealth of wildlife.
Retreat into the privacy of our cosy library and explore the treasures of our unique wine cellar. Outside, a rim-flow swimming pool further enhances the splendour whilst creating the perfect setting to unwind and absorb the sights, sounds and scents of Africa.
The most thrilling part of any stay with us is undoubtedly the Chitwa Chitwa safari experience. Our qualified guides and expert trackers ensure an unforgettable safari, enriching the experience with their profound knowledge of this animal kingdom and its complex habitat. Chitwa’s holistic approach to hospitality with specific emphasis on wildlife conservation distinguishes spell-binding sightings of the abundant wildlife. Leave enriched with a new perspective and affectionate memories of the very best of the African bush.
