Chitwa Chitwa Game Reserve, Sabi Sands

Hotel

 

The most famous private game reserve of all. Sabi Sands Game Reserve, adjacent to South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park, offers a safari experience found nowhere else in the world. Game viewing possibilities are simply unparalleled, including the much sought after 'Big 5'. Add a fantastic range of luxury lodges suiting all tastes and a African dream safari is born. There are no fences between Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve, so wildlife roams freely in huge natural environment.

 

The Sabi Sands is in particular well known for its amazing leopard sightings. The most elusive animal of the Big 5 is frequently spotted when going on a gamedrive in the reserve. As such, Sabi Sands offers the ultimate photographic safari one can think of. You can be certain to return home with some absolutely stunning pictures and memories. Besides the Big 5, other game species occur in great numbers, among which are more than 300 bird species. Sabi Sands possibly makes the best South African safari destination for wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and bird watchers alike.

 

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. 

Rooms & Suites

 

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.
