Chobe Chilwero

Chobe Chilwero borders the Chobe National Park, which is the second largest national park in Botswana covering an area of 10,566 km Chilwero, means “place of high view” in the local language of Setswana. The lodge sits above the Chobe River and offers unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and floodplains as far as Namibia. Chobe National Park covers a diversity of landscapes ranging from riverine forests to floodplains and periodic marshlands. The area is home to the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, as well as abundance of hippo, buffalo, antelope and lion. Chobe Chilwero has fifteen air-conditioned luxurious thatched cottages, with en-suite sunken handcrafted baths, indoor and outdoor showers, private gardens and terraces overlooking the magnificent Chobe River. There is also a library, curio shop and a communications centre. Although located in Botswana, this small, 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. Game activities at Chobe Chilwero are scheduled flexibly, according to the whims of guests and the changing habits of the game (subject to vehicle availability). Thrilling guided game drives in open vehicles bring you to the heart of Africa's largest concentration of elephants, or enjoy a wondrous water safari on specially adapted motorboats. Sundowner cruises are particularly spectacular on the Chobe River. Fishing excursions are also available. End each day with a refreshing dip in the swimming pool, followed by a sumptuous meal lovingly prepared by our expert culinary staff - a delicious, eclectic fusion of Western and African cuisine and delicacies - all topped off by a sampling of vintage wines and spirits from our cellar. It's the perfect complement to your one-of-a-kind African adventure. High teas are often served on the lawn under the shade of the trees. Superlative game viewing and silver service may now be combined with the ultimate in pampering: in-room spa treatments. Therapies range from a Clarins Ultimate Firming Facial to a Full Body Swedish Massage, to relax and invigorate in true African style.
