Chitwa Chitwa Lodge is a small but luxurious game lodge located in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. The lodge has just 6 modern, thatched suites featuring private decks with views of the dam, and individual plunge pools.
The viewing deck in the common area of the lodge has great views of the dam and a beautiful rim flow swimming pool. From the pool guests can watch hippos, elephants and other wildlife gathering by the dam. Chitwa Chitwa is perfectly set up to accommodate families, but makes a great romantic destination in the bush for couples as well.
“Amazing it the word that comes to mind when I think of Chitwa Chitwa, the whole bush experience is just perfect."
Safari at Chitwa Chitwa
Each of the 6 suites are highly spacious, comfortable and modern with local South African design touches. Fireplaces (lit by staff while guests are on their evening game drives) keep the winter chill away. All suites have large en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs and indoor and outdoor showers. Watch passing elephants and giraffe from your private deck, or relax in your private plunge pool in between drives.
All meals and 2 daily game drives are included in your stay at Chitwa Chitwa, walking safaris (when available) and transfers to and from the nearby airstrip. Meals at the lodge are excellent, and romantic private dinners can be arranged for couples. With snacks on game drives in between meals, guests will never go hungry at Chitwa Chitwa. Morning drives begin early, just before dawn, before returning from the 3 hour outing to enjoy a hearty breakfast at the lodge. Evening drives include sun downers and appetizers before dinner at the lodge.
While there are a good deal of lodges in the Sabi Sand, vehicle numbers are well managed so that there is always low densities of vehicles at sightings. This makes for great game viewing, and little disturbance to the animals.
Note: Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on game drives.
