Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa

Prices From: $700 per person per night

Nestled within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, part of the Kruger National Park, and standing sentry over one of the reserve's largest lakes is Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge. Imagine a seamless blend of authentic African design with eclectic European elegance, and you will conjure up the unique style and character of this Lodge.

Hidden among the lush gardens, each of the lovingly and individually crafted chalets exudes an air of bygone romance and a hint of adventure, all wrapped in unfaltering luxury. Both the standard and luxury chalets and the relaxing pool and sundeck enjoy superb views of the lake, where the water runs cool and clear.

Originally a private family retreat, Chitwa Chitwa earned its name as an affectionate ode to the aging giraffe bull who shared the lakeside home as an extended member of the Brink family. According to the owner, Charl Brink, the majestic arrival of this regal relative was always signaled by the creaking of his old joints - and still today, his watchful essence is felt presiding over the lodge.
