There are few safari destinations as popular as Kruger Park, and for good reason! The facilities and wealth of wildlife make it simply irresistible and one of the must-go parks for wildlife lovers. The problem is that with popularity come the crowds, the commercial tours and the endless sound of shutters trying to capture a flustered lion. Fortunately, you can experience all the benefits of Kruger Park with privacy and comfort at Chitwa Chitwa lodge.
The lodge is located in Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve which is a part of Kruger Park. It has 6 suites, each uniquely decorated, that lead to a private pool and a deck that overlooks a watering hole. At Chitwa, they combine European luxury with African chic flawlessly, standing out where it matters, but otherwise blending seamlessly with the surroundings. If you need even more privacy, you can book Chitwa house, a two-bedroom lodge where you’ll enjoy the services of your private butler and chef.
GO ON AN AMAZING WILDLIFE EXPERIENCE
Chitwa used to be a privately owned lodge. One of the regular visitors was a giraffe bull, Chitwa. When the lodge started to receive guests it decided to honour the charismatic visitor and that’s how the lodge got its name. Chitwa is still a family endeavour and denotes a deep love for the South African wilderness, aiding in conservation and managing the reserve ethically. Staying at Chitwa is the only selfless way that I know of to have Kruger Park all to yourself.
