How to Get to Chitwa Chitwa, Sabi Sand Reserve

Chitwa Chitwa is situated overlooking the largest lake in the north eastern reaches of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which forms part of the Greater Kruger Park. There are no fences so the wildlife can move freely through the region.

The lodge was named after an old bull Giraffe that used to live in the area and Giraffe are still commonly seen in the vicinity of the camp. Sabi Sand is famous for its excellent game viewing, including sightings of the Big Five.
