Botswana » Chobe » Lodges » Chobe Chilwero

Chobe Chilwero is a luxury safari lodge located on the border of the Chobe National Park, just 10 minutes by road to Kasane and 1½ hours from the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. This ideal location provides superb access to the Okavango Delta, Victoria Falls and the Caprivi Strip of Namibia.

Chilwero, quite literally means a 'place of high view', and accurately describes this exquisite lodge, which sits above the Chobe River and offers unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and flood plains as far as Namibia. 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.

Chobe Chilwero offers 9 double and 6 twin luxury cottages, all of which are individually designed to blend in perfectly with the topography and natural vegetation of the surrounding area. Each luxury cottage has its own en-suite bathroom with a large sunken handcrafted bath, indoor and outdoor showers, private garden, 'sala' or private balcony, mosquito nets, ceiling fans and air-conditioning.

The main public area at Chobe Chilwero includes an elegant lounge and dining room, which are linked to spectacular outdoor viewing decks. The well-stocked wine cellar is temperature controlled and houses a large variety of the finest South African and European wines. Chobe Chilwero also boasts a swimming pool, library, curio and an e-communications centre that allows guests to keep in touch with e-mail.

For game viewing, Chobe Chilwero offers guests complete flexibility. Highly qualified professional guides lead game drives in customized open 4x4 game viewing vehicles and especially adapted safari motor boats. Sundowner Cruises are particularly spectacular for sunsets on the Chobe River. Fishing excursions are also available. Guests can also enjoy a day trip to visit the Victoria Falls if desired.

Superlative game viewing and silver service may now be combined with the ultimate in pampering: in-room spa treatments.
