Chitwa Chitwa Camp
Luxury in with an eco twist
Chitwa Chitwa Camp
Named after an ageing giraffe bull that used to share this lakeside spot with the lodge’s original owners, Chitwa Chitwa fostered a close, caring relationship with the bush since its beginnings. It shows that high-end luxury and environmental awareness can exist in the same place. And what a stunning place this is, perched on the banks of one of the largest lakes in the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The lodge was specifically designed to blend in with the surroundings rather than change it, a fact that draws many wondering wildlife to stroll through.
At the lodge
Africa meets Europe in the restaurant, at the bar and on the massive timber deck overlooking the lake. Expect nguni cattle rugs and fascinating masks paired with with slick, modern furniture. When you're not dining here, have your dinner in the boma and your lunch on the shady deck. Cool off in the rim-flow pool, work up a sweat in the fully equipped gym, hide away in the library or indulge in a full body massage at the lakeside spa.
The fact that any of the eight suites can fit two extra beds for children shows just the amount of space your home in the bush has. Six suites each a private plunge pool. The other two are inter-leading suites with a shared living room and pool - ideal for families or friends. Shower indoors, outdoors, or take a lazy bath. Spend evenings in front of your fire place and early mornings on your timber deck. Snooze under pure cotton.
Wake up early for game drives conducted by professional and engaging rangers. Watching rhino, lion, giraffe and antelope start their day from the comfort of an open-sided 4x4, followed by pastries and coffee in the bush is worth the early alarm. Afternoon game drives are coupled with sundowners. If you're feeling active, you can join a game walk. There are special walks for children too.
