Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge

Nestling into obscurity around the largest lake in the reserve, one of Chitwa Chitwa's most endearing features is its seamless integration into the surrounding African bush through its ideal location and design.

About Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge

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 an 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.

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. 

Shaded by old Knobthorn trees, our large wooden lounging deck affords unrivalled wildlife sightings of the Big Five (leopard, lion, buffalo, elephant and rhinoceros), who share the rugged bushveld with cheetah, giraffe, hippo, zebra and antelope. Spacious viewing areas strewn with comfy daybeds and a rim-flow swimming pool further enhance the feeling of being a part of the beautiful scenery, whilst creating the perfect environment to relax, unwind and absorb the sights, sounds and scents of Africa.
