Chitwa Chitwa Lodge

Lodge style Art-inspired African fusion

Harmony of African chich and European comfort

Original, stylish, innovative and personal, Chitwa Chitwa features an eclectic fusion of African chic and contemporary European design to create gorgeous, unbridled luxury – although nothing could compete with the beauty of its setting, next to one of the largest lakes in Sabi Sand and a popular watering hole for local wildlife. This means spectacular game-spotting without even leaving your seat, whether you’re on your private deck, in the chic lounge or enjoying the wonderful cuisine in the dining room or lake-side lapa.

Great care has been taken to balance unpretentious style with complete comfort when it comes to the Chitwa Suites. Each of the six individually decorated suites open onto a private lake-view deck with its own private plunge pool, framed by a spacious timber deck that overlooks the nearby lake – a popular drinking hole for our wealth of wildlife. The luxury suites are very spacious, varying from 130 to 180 square metres, and can accommodate up to 2 extra beds for children under the age of 12 years only. The Charlsy Suite in particular is a superb solution for families or friends travelling together! It consists of two splendidly appointed inter-leading en-suite rooms joined by a comfortable living area. A fabulously spacious common lake view deck with a swimming pool completes this unique unit. All the Chitwa Chitwa Suites include a bath-tub, indoor and outdoor shower, fireplace, minibar, fan, hairdryer, tea coffee making facility and an iPod docking station.

Tripadvisor comments Chitwa Chitwa

Chitwa is a luxurious lodge set in a fabulous location overlooking a lake where you can see many animals all day long from your room! It's amazing! Service is great and all the staff is very friendly. Game drives were more than I could ever expect. Our ranger Surprise managed to discover all the animals and nearly eveyday we got to see the big five! Just be aware that there are 2 rooms that are a bit cheaper but a bit old and need some renovation. I reccomend room number 5 which is new, fabulous, big,well furnished with a lovely private pool overlooking the lake.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and I cannot give enough praise. The location is amazing and the light aircraft flight to get there is a wonderfull experience in its self. The staff are very welcoming and cannot do enough, we arrived to the sight of two elephants and a hippo at the watering hole that the lodge is situated directly upon. The food is incredible and the chef even spoke to my wife every afternoon to make her any variation on the menu she desired as she doesnt eat red meat or dairy. The game drives are so much more than we could have imagined, with one in the morning and one in the evening we saw the big 5 every day. Our guide named Suprise was so knowledgeable and very funny, he was teamed with our tracker Howard who spotted anything that moved from great distances. The bar is well stocked and fairly priced, all elements of service are top quality and we could not have asked for more.
