Days 1-5 Chitwa Chitwa at Sabi Sands Game Reserve

Your adventure begins at Chitwa Chitwa in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, a haven of tranquility in the South African wilderness.

Stay in the exquisite Charlsy Suite, specifically designed for families, featuring two inter-leading en-suite rooms connected by a cozy living area. The suite offers a breathtaking lake view deck and a private swimming pool, ensuring privacy and relaxation for your family.

At Chitwa Chitwa, each day will start with an invigorating early morning safari, and end with a magical evening safari, both offering a chance to witness the African Big Five in their natural habitat. The safaris are perfect for children over six and are led by rangers who are skilled in engaging young explorers. Between safaris, you can uncover the secrets of the African bush on leisurely bush walks as a family. The lodge reserve also boasts excellent facilities, including a library, boutique, gym, and a tranquil spa.
