Hotel Overview


Chitwa Chitwa sits on the bank of one the largest lakes of the exclusive 63,000 hectare Sabi Sand private game reserve, part of the greater Kruger National Park.

Rooms at Chitwa Chitwa

There are eight luxurious suites overlooking the lake – a popular drinking hole for wildlife. The rooms are decorated using natural colours and textures to replicate the serenity of the African bush indoors. Each suite has its own plunge pool, framed by a private timber deck. The Chitwa Chitwa House offers greater privacy, with a private house butler.

Food and Facilities

Delicious, freshly prepared food served either indoors or out, on the main deck, under shady umbrellas or at the Boma. Spacious viewing areas strewn with comfy daybeds and a rim-flow swimming pool further enhance the feeling of being a part of nature.

Activities at Chitwa Chitwa

Two daily game activities, either in a safari vehicle or on foot. The extensive knowledge of your ranger, and his Shangaan tracker, will ensure an unforgettable experience. If you need a break from game viewing you can spend a day with the locals on a cultural village excursion. Massage treatments are also available at the lodge.
