Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero borders Chobe National Park, home to the world's largest remaining population of elephants. This is an incredibly luxurious lodge with just 15 guest cottages, as well as the only full spa on the Botswana safari circuit. A great deal of thought has gone into making Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero a luxurious riverside retreat in the heart of the bush, with all of the facilities of a larger resort. Guests can relax in the split-level swimming pool, unwind with a pampering session in the spa or enjoy the gourmet food that the lodge has become known for.
Deep in the heart of the Botswana wilderness lays Chobe Chilwero Lodge, one of the most enchanting places on earth. With gorgeous, breathtaking vistas as a backdrop, you'll come face-to-face with the abundant creatures of the bush, and some of the most spectacular sunsets Mother Nature bestows. You will enjoy creature comforts - elegantly appointed accommodations, silver service, gourmet meals and fine wines. There is also a library, curio shop and a communications centre. Although located in Botswana, this intimate lodge is easily accessed from Zambia and the world famous Victoria Falls. Guests can enjoy a day trip to visit the falls if desired. The main area commands fabulous views over the Chobe River which borders Chobe National Park to the north. As well as the elephants for which the park is famous, there are also huge herds of buffalo living in the towering teak forests that are characteristic of the area.
Relax in the luxurious thatched cottages, each with its own private garden and balcony where guests can sip cocktails after a day of game viewing, or a private dinner served under the African sky. The en-suite bathrooms feature a large free-standing bath and a shower. There is also a shower on the outside of the cottage, with fantastic views of the surrounding area. Room amenities include: A/C, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, hairdryer and a safe.
