The detail

There are just fifteen thatched Cottages at Chobe Chilwero, assuring guests of seclusion and tranquillity. Each spacious en-suite cottage has a large bedroom, mosquito netting, en-suite bathroom with a large free-standing bath and both indoor and outdoor showers, sitting area, air conditioning, hairdryer, overhead fan, in-room safe, minibar, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

The Honeymoon Suite has all the features of the cottages with the addition of a private plunge pool, a private deck where guests will be able to enjoy private dinners for two under the stars (weather permitting) and special turndowns every night. This suite is also equipped with a private vehicle and guide for all game viewing activities.

The facilities at Chobe Chilwero include an expansive lounge area, indoor and outdoor dining area, a bar, a spa, kiddies club, babysitting services, laundry service, and a split-level pool.

Meals are sumptuous affairs, and the lodge is renowned for its delicious, eclectic fusion of Western and African cuisine and delicacies. Guests may request private dinners served outdoors under the twinkling African sky.

Game viewing activities are personally tailored. On offer are morning and late afternoon game drives, sunset boat cruises along the tranquil waters of the Chobe, and fishing excursions.

Chobe National Park offers abundant and diverse wildlife and is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. During the dry season these herds, as well as large herds of buffalo, congregate along the fertile floodplains of the Chobe River. Magnificent sightings of puku, sable, giraffe and roan antelope, as well as the rare aquatic Red Lechwe and the indigenous Chobe Bushbuck are frequent. The abundant game supports a healthy population of predators, including large resident populations of lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. The park is home to the Big Five, along with huge pods of hippo and crocodiles.

Chobe is rich in birdlife, offering over 450 species, including the rare Pel’s Fishing Owl and the distinctive, strangely beaked African skimmer.

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is ideal for solo explorers, couples, and families looking for a luxury safari getaway.

Great stay at Chobe Chilwero Lodge, 2 days was nearly too short. Great game, fantastic drives, good food, and a very comfortable atmosphere. Lovely boutique in the hotel as well. Very friendly staff. Will come back!
We stayed at Chobe Chilwero for 2 nights in June 2015 with our two children aged 8 and 7. Everything was superb. The rooms are beautiful, incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms amazing. Our Guide Chika was fantastic and he worked tirelessly to get us amazing sightings both on land and the river. All the staff at Chobe Chilwero were amazing, and we were treated like family. The food was exceptional and some of the best food I have eaten since living in South Africa. The Chef, Phineas was exceptionally kind to our children and catered for them specially. It really was an experience I will never forget, thank you so much to everyone at Chobe Chilwero.
Rarely does one visit a place and can only check the "excellent" box on every entry. Chobe Chilwero is one such place! From the time we arrived at the time we left the property, the staff made us feel akin to long time family members. From the GM to the groundsmen everyone actively participated in our delightful experience! Gourmet food presentations were tantalizing to the taste buds from dusk till dawn. We honestly didn't want to leave.
