Chobe Chilwero is the most luxurious safari lodge in the greater Chobe region and is situated on the edge of Chobe National Park upon the Chobe Riverfront. It offers standards of service, accommodation and all round excellence at such high levels that make it arguably one of Botswana’s top luxury offerings.
The Lodge is owned by Sanctuary Retreats whom we feel have mastered the art of creating harmony between 5 star luxury and safari authenticity, a particularly difficult skill to achieve. There are 15 glorious suites, all outfitted in absolute style and class. The attention to detail here is obvious and the rooms are great retreats in which to relax in when not on safari.
The range of facilities on offer at the lodge are plentiful, all designed to pamper and relax its guests.
We really love Chobe Chilwero in low season as it becomes incredibly good value, the crowds with which Chobe National park is synonymous are not present and the wildlife is still excellent. To be honest, we think that it’s too pricey in peak season given the proximity to large numbers of safari visitors to the park but would still work very well as a relaxing end to a longer safari itinerary.
Activities are centers around vehicle and boat safaris. The river is a big focus and rightly so, with unimaginable numbers of Elephant frequently venturing to the river edge to drink. The guiding is of a high standard as is the quality of the game viewing and birdlife. A two or three night stay at Chobe Chilwero would be the perfect amount of time to spend here
