Accommodation in Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge - Sabi Sand Game Reserve

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.

Much like the giraffe around which this charming tale of Chitwa Chitwa is centered, the private game lodge is magnificent and graceful in appearance, yet humble enough to evaporate into the surrounding beauty of the unspoiled bush of the Sabi Sand.

After its classic transformation into an eclectic blend of European style with African chic, Chitwa Chitwa has emerged as an exquisite balance between unbridled luxury and environmental harmony.  We strive to achieve this through our ongoing efforts to maintain a holistic  approach as a guest in the home of the African bush, thus ensuring the continued splendour and beauty of Chitwa Chitwa and its surrounds for generations to come.

Room Description

Chitwa Chitwa's distinctive charm is translated into the detailed finishings of our accommodation. Natural colours and textures meld with the beauty of nature's paintbrush to replicate the serenity of the African bush indoors. The mood is complimented by the passionate artworks of Maria Brink, who together with her husband Charl, has created the perfect environment of refined luxury and relaxation.

Chitwa Chitwa Suits: Great care has been taken to balance unpretentious style with complete comfort in our beautiful chalets. Each individually decorated suite has 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 Chitwa House: In response to a growing demand for greater privacy and exclusive hospitality, we have created a treasured escape into unapologetic style in the form of The Chitwa House. Here, guests can enjoy a bush experience tailored to their every whim with the assistance of an experienced house butler and the enthusiasm of a dedicated ranger. Aside from the striking beauty of the African chic interior, the emphasis is on an element of familiarity as guests set the pace in their own private piece of Africa.
