Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero lies perched above the Chobe River, on a hill overlooking the adjacent islands and floodplains. This luxurious riverside retreat is best known for housing the planets largest remaining elephant population, as well as for its spectacular panoramic views over the surrounding area. The luxurious lodge boasts just fifteen air-conditioned thatched guest cottages, each one elegantly designed with its own en-suite bathroom complete with sunken baths, indoor and outdoor showers, and private garden with its own balcony and hammock overlooking the never-ending Chobe River.
Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero has become synonymous with mouth-watering cuisine featuring a fusion of African and Western gourmet delights that are complimented by an excellent wine list which includes everything from some of South Africa’s finest wines to the classic European vintages.
Guests can spend their days relaxing under shady trees whilst enjoying a high tea, or popping to the main lodge which includes a library, lounge and dining room connected to outdoor viewing patios, a curio shop and communications centre. Or they can simply unwind in the split-level swimming pool or indulge in a pampering in-room spa treatment. Chobe Chilwero boasts the only full spa (which includes a treetop treatment room) on the Botswana Safari circuit.
The lodge offers guests the opportunity of experiencing thrilling game drives through the Chobe National Park in open-sided 4×4 vehicles accompanied by highly qualified guides. Guests can also explore the Chobe River for a sundowner cruise in customised motorboats, or go on a fishing excursion. The reserve is home to hippo, buffalo, lion, various antelope and of course a big population of elephant, as well as approximately four hundred different bird species.
Although situated in Botswana, the lodge can easily be entered through Zambia. With the world famous Victoria falls a mere day trip away, and the biggest concentration of elephants in Africa right on your doorstep, it is not hard to see why Chobe Chilwero offers guest the ultimate African Safari experience of a lifetime.
