The main area offers superb game viewing from the main lounge and dining areas as they are rendered invisible to the various groups of wild animals that congregate at the water’s edge. The deck has viewing areas with comfy daybeds and a swimming pool, making it the perfect environment to relax, unwind and absorb the sights, sounds and scents.
Fitness enthusiasts might want to spend time training in the gym, which comes fully equipped with treadmill, spinning bike, pilates ball, dumbbells, aerobic mats and the all-in-one weight gym.

Chitwa offers a Community Tour of the local Shangaan Village. The Dixie Village Tour is approximately 2 hours, and guests will slip unnoticed into a day in the life of the locals whilst tapping into the optimism and energy that is so much part of this little village's charm. A minimum donation goes to the Chitwa Trust Fund which helps the village with building private classrooms, buying food for the school etc. You can either pre-book this via your Travel Butlers consultant, or you can arrange this with the lodge when you arrive (additional cost).
MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and Visa credit cards are accepted.
A laundry service is available.
A Guest Conservation Contribution has been included in your rate. The proceeds go towards the Sabi Sand Wildtuin anti-poaching efforts, the community and ecology.
If you are arriving/departing via FedAir, the lodge is a 20 minute drive away from the airstrip.
Bush Walks / Walking Safaris
Children under the age of 12 years are not permitted on game walks. The final decision on whether a guest can join a game walk remains with the guide and lodge manager.
