Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is a luxurious riverside retreat in the heart of the bush on the edge of Chobe National Park, home to the world's largest remaining population of elephants.
The main area commands beautiful views over the Chobe River which borders Chobe National Park to the north. Guests can relax in the split-level swimming pool, unwind with a pampering session in the spa or enjoy the gourmet food that the lodge has become known for.
Each of the 14 thatched guest cottages has two showers, one inside and one outside. The en suite bathroom also has a large free-standing bath. The new honeymoon suite features a private plunge pool and deck area where guests will be able to enjoy private dinners for two under the stars (weather permitting).
Elephants feature largely on any activity at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero, as the largest population left in Africa occupies this northern corner between Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe. Game drives in open-sided 4 x 4 vehicles bring these grey giants into easy reach as they drink and frolic at the water's edge in their boisterous herds. Thrilling game drives lead by qualified professional guides bring you close to hippos, buffalos, puku and other animals that gather on the banks of the Chobe River. The puku, a small rusty-brown antelope, alongside impala, kudu and red lechwe, are only a few of the common antelope found here. Naturally, lion and leopard are also found in the area.
The camp's new safari boat offers a great exclusive and intimate alternative to enjoying the Chobe area especially for photographic enthusiasts.
