Originally a private retreat of the Brink family, Chitwa Chitwa stands as a jewel of South African hospitality, an emblem of the savanna’s most authentic and refined luxury.
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. 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, an oasis of conservation.
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 the wealth of wildlife.
Chitwa House consists of two beautifully appointed en-suite rooms with private decks and out-door showers. The common areas include a spacious common lounge and dining area and a lake-view deck with swimming pool. You can go on exciting Big 5 game drives in your own private safari vehicle with a guide and tracker.
Venture deep into the wilderness on game drives or on bush walks to witness the Big 5 and Africa’s other magnificent animals right up close. Look out for the elusive leopard and wild dog for a truly memorable safari experience. You’re going to want to bring the camera for this!
Enjoy drinks under the African stars, meals in the traditional boma, cooling dips in the lodge swimming pool or your private plunge pool, alongside harrumphing hippos and crocodiles in the dam and soothing massages and treatments in the Spa.
