Overview of The Chitwa House

Set in South Africa’s famous Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, The Chitwa House is a luxury private villa at Chitwa Chitwa Game Lodge and offers an exclusive Big 5 safari experience to share with family or friends. The villa has a private airstrip situated only minutes away from the villa and features a dedicated ranger and a butler to ensure your stay is both comfortable and personalised.

At The Chitwa House, you set the pace for your safari. You’ll decide when and where you would like to have your meals while your ranger will advise you on the best times for game viewing excursions. Your personal staff will be happy to arrange other activities such as guided bush walks, hot-air ballooning and helicopter rides but you may be happy just to unwind on the deck or cool off in your private pool overlooking one of the largest lakes in the reserve.
