Overview of Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero

Bordering Chobe National Park – home to Kalahari elephants, the world’s largest species – this safari retreat offers splendid views across the Chobe River and its dry-season floodplains. Fifteen family-friendly bungalows are set in manicured gardens and Chobe Chilwero boasts the only full spa facility on Botswana’s safari circuit, with a tree-top treatment room that offers a unique pampering experience.

Add morning and afternoon game drives to Chobe National Park – conveniently scheduled to avoid pre-dawn wake-up calls and allowing time for breakfast – as well as tranquil sunset riverboat cruises and you have all the ingredients for the perfect safari in an area that boasts the highest concentration of elephants on the continent.

Guests at Chobe Chilwero can bask in the split-level swimming after a morning photographing sable antelope, water-weeded hippo, long-horned kudu, sleepy crocodiles and adorable banded mongooses in Chobe National Park. Then watch the sun transform from egg-yolk yellow to a blood-red fireball as it sinks below the far-off horizon…

    Suite

    The air-conditioned brick-and-thatch suites have enormous bedrooms furnished with 4-poster beds covered with mosquito netting. The en suite bathroom has a free-standing bathtub, as well as a shower and a double vanity. All rooms have safes, mini-bars, telephones and Wi-Fi connectivity.

    General Facilities

    Chobe Chilwero is a family-friendly establishment that welcomes children of all ages. A lounge area with board games and TV are available as well as child-minding services.

    Rooms are built on either side of the central reception area that adjoins a dining room, bar and lounge. The dining room boasts glorious views of the gardens and Chobe River, and leads onto an outside terrace that begs for alfresco dining with the twittering birds.

    Twice-daily game drives in open-sided 4x4s and motorboat trips on the Chobe River put guests into close contact with the incredible diversity of wildlife in the Chobe area.

    The lodge’s split-level swimming pool is the ideal place to while away hot afternoons while a fully-equipped spa – with a unique ‘tree-top’ treatment room – soothes and rejuvenates. There is also a compact gym available in the spa area.

    You can also undertake optional village visits and perhaps pop into the Dipetsana Women’s Bike Shop, where you can undertake a scenic bicycle ride around the small town of Kasane. A day-trip to the Victoria Falls can also be arranged at extra cost.

    Dining

    Enjoy meals in the spacious dining room or out on the covered veranda to take in its stunning garden and river views. Breakfast is served before your morning game drive and comprises continental options with barista coffee as well as a hot English-style breakfast made to order. Lunch is usually a choice of two or three plated dishes plus dessert, otherwise try creating your own pizza for a delicious alternative.

    After your afternoon game drive or sunset cruise, your 3-course dinner includes options of terrific game meat dishes such as eland and ostrich, and wood-fired pizzas with your choice of tasty toppings, each paired with a wine from the cellar.

    Afternoon tea and pre-dinner snacks have been replaced with a scrumptious all-day snack menu, offering guests a unique range of delicious delights.
