A stylish and luxurious safari lodge with a homely atmosphere and the most unique of settings overlooking the largest perennial lake in this 63,000 hectare BIg Five game reserve. The six stylish and spacious suites are individually decorated offering ultimate privacy ideal for honeymooners and couples. However, Chitwa Chitwa is also one of the few luxury lodges in the Sabi Sands to accept children of all ages and the Charlsy Suite consisting of two interlinking suites, is ideal for families.

Amazing - Great place for a honeymoon!

Phoenix, Arizona

Everything about Chitwa Chitwa exceeded all of our expectations! The resort and our room was beautifully decorated, and full of everything you would need (including night time bug spray!). The staff was very kind, and went above and beyond with a surprise for our honeymoon - no spoilers, but it was very thoughtful and more than just a bottle of Champaign! The food was amazing, and each dinner had a different and unique theme/feel to it. The food truck they created was one of our favorite meals. The guides are very engaging and knowledgeable. They create a great experience and seek out the animals you want to see more of, lots of leopards! You’ll for sure see the big 5 and be so glad you stayed here - it’s unreal!

Stayed here for 4 nights. Luxurious accommodation, great food, wonderful staff including rangers and trackers. Abundant game and large dam in front of the lodge thriving with a large variety of wildlife. We have been to many private game parks in South Africa and this was one of the best we have seen. Each chalet has its own swimming pool. Amazing facilities. Hope to return
