Chitwa Chitwa, Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa

Named after a giraffe that visited the adjacent lake, the stone lodges here feature an eclectic mix of African chic and European style to create gorgeous, unbridled luxury.

​This is safari with style – a four-time winner at the Luxury Hotel Awards. And while nothing could compete with the beauty of its setting, Chitwa Chitwa mixes African and eclectic European style in a really imaginative way.

It’s beautifully designed to let the outside in, giving you a real feeling of being part of the landscape – especially as it’s not unusual for game to wander into the camp!

The food here is imaginative in a similar way: Africa meets Mediterranean, with every meal a social event. For a little more exclusivity (not to mention your own butler and ranger), the private two-bedroomed Chitwa House offers even more exclusivity – as well as its own butler and ranger.​
