Originally a private retreat of the Brink family, Chitwa Chitwa was transformed by Charl into an oasis of conservation and harmony. With an extremely strong approach to conservation and land management, this beautiful lodge offers you a fabulous experience while visiting the Sabi Sands. The Chitwa Trust actively supports the local community through an educare centre as well as adult educational initiative. You’ll also find several environmental programmes in place at the lodge itself.

As a family owned and run lodge, you will receive excellent service as well as comfort when staying here. With just eight luxury suites each stylishly decorated and spacious, this lodge is a nice and intimate experience for family and honeymooner alike.

The Chitwa House is a private villa with just two beautifully appointed en-suite rooms with private decks and out-door showers. It has a massively spacious common room and benefits from private meals, driver, guides and chef. Magic.

Positive Impact

Dixie Wisani Educare Centre

The Chitwa Trust has taken steps to improve conditions at the pre-school Educare Centre so that children can continue to learn. This has involved providing children with shoes and uniforms so that they can attend primary school, providing meals and upgrading existing infrastructure so that the children have toilet facilities. There is also a computer training school and a vaccination campaign for children under the age of five. Beyond the educare centre, Chitwa also provides gardening, recycling, and computer training to the local community.

Eco-friendly programmes

At the property there is no incadescent lighting, and a solar-powered water heating system is used. They have a waste and refuse removal programme and only use eco-approved detergents and cleaning products.
