As soon as you touch down on the remote airstrip at Chitwa Chitwa, your adventure begins. Greeted by your game tracker in his open top Jeep, you will be buzzing with excitement for what you might spot on your short drive to the lodge.
Chitwa Chitwa is a stunning 6 suite lodge situated in Sabi Sands in the Kruger National Park. From the moment you arrive you know you have just arrived somewhere special, with its welcoming staff and laid back approach, your safari break isn’t going to just be about spotting game.
There are a few lodges that face directly out onto the natural watering hole and we would highly recommend booking one of those, as you can sit on your veranda and spot game as they come to drink during the day. Each suite features its own private plunge pool, and outdoor shower and are all decorated in artefacts collected around South Africa. And when you have some time to relax, there is a swimming pool on the sunset deck, where you can spot game as well as dipping in and out of a good book and spa where you can take a massage after one of your game drives.
Then there are the game drives. With two drives each day there are plenty of chances to spot the big five and everything else this stunning part of Africa has to offer, and if you want to stretch your legs, there are trackers on hand to accompany you on a walk where you can really get to know the smaller creatures as well training yourself to be an expert tracker studying track marks and scents.
Dinners range from formal to a braai around the camp fire, created to be a social affair, you can swap stories with fellow guests of what you experienced that day. Stories that you will be retelling to your friends and family at home.
