CHITWA CHITWA - KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, LIMPOPO
There are very few wildlife lodges in South Africa that manage to combine absolutely luxurious accommodation with a respectful approach to nature conservation and holistic wildlife experiences. This is why we were absolutely thrilled to come across Chitwa Chitwa

Situated in the Waterberg biosphere, Ehlathini Game Lodge is a beautiful hidden gem pitched high upon a hill southwest of Marken, a small settlement in Limpopo Province. 

But just because the lodge overlooks the lower-lying Bushveld, doesn't mean that it's a rustic venue - to the contrary, it's a place of true sophistication and tranquil relaxation where guests determine their own pace. 

Nature walks and game drives bring visitors close to an array of bird life, giraffe, zebra, kudu, blue wildebeest and many other antelope species. 

Crisp and clear night skies encourage stargazing where you can lose yourself and almost touch the Southern Cross and Orion’s belt. This stunning accommodation venue will leave you with special memories and a longing to return.
