Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero borders Chobe National Park, home to the world's largest remaining population of elephants. A great deal of thought has gone into making Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero a luxurious riverside retreat in the heart of the bush, with all of the facilities of a larger resort. 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. The main area commands fabulous views over the Chobe River.
While at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero, a visit to the spa is an absolute must. The full-service spa offers a range of treatments and rituals of the highest quality to relax, restore and revitalize guests. Authentic African design has been integrated with, and inspired by, the abundance of nature that surrounds the lodge. Spa facilities include an indoor spa bath, Vichy showers, hydrotherapy, plunge pool, relaxation area and private treatment rooms, one of which is elevated in the treetops.
Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero has just 15 guest cottages. Each room has two showers - one inside and one outside. The freestanding tubs in the bathrooms are big and comfortable.
Each cottage has its own private garden where guests can sip cocktails after a day of game viewing, or why not enjoy your very own private dinner served under the African sky.
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 guests close to hippos, buffalos, puku, antelope, lions and other creatures that gather on the banks of the Chobe River.
Game drives are also the perfect opportunity for the expert guides to share their wealth of information on the area and its inhabitants.
Specially designed riverboats take guests up close to elephants as they wade in the river or near to the buffalo who gather on its shores. Sundowner cruises are also a great way of seeing animals up close as they come out of the shade to graze in the cooler evenings.
