Chobe National Park

Chobe Chilwero

With a view over the Chobe River, Chobe Chilwero (pronounced chee-LAIR-o) is a plush African luxury lodge with a sublime setting.

Accommodation at Chobe Chilwero is, appropriately, elephantine in all respects. From the massive four-poster beds, to the gargantuan bathrooms, complete with free-standing tub and two showers, the 15 safari houses are pure luxury.

Covering 60 sq m, the suites also have large shaded verandas and a private garden with hammocks and a thatched gazebo with a view of the Chobe River.

The living area is equally sublime where a fine dining experience awaits. Facing the river, enjoy silver service beneath the stars with the occasional herd of elephants tramping past.

Chobe Chilwero has a complete spa with full time staff and range of treatments, therapies and relaxation sessions available should the rigours of a five-star luxury safari lodge become too burdensome.

Facilities

15 luxury safari houses; en suite bathrooms with free-standing bath and two showers (one outdoors); giant four-poster beds; air conditioning; mini bar; private veranda and garden overlooking the river; gazebo and hammocks; dining area; game viewing deck; swimming pool; wine cellar; wellness spa

Activities

Game drives; motorboat safaris; sunset and scenic river cruises; sport fishing; day trips to Victoria Falls.

With all this luxury and scale you'd think the folk at Chobe Chilwero were compensating for a so-so game viewing safari. Au contraire, au contraire. With over 200,000 of them the Chobe National Park has the greatest concentration of elephants anywhere in the world. The Chobe River and its vast plains also attract a great number and variety of birds, antelope large and small, plains game large and small, and the fearsome predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dog.

Activities at Chobe Chilwero include water safaris on delta boats, game drives, sunset cruises on the Chobe River and day trips to Victoria Falls.

Chobe Bakwena Lodge

Chobe Bakwena Lodge sits right on the edge of the Chobe River just before it joins the Zambezi en route to Victoria Falls; where Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet; where mighty game reserves surround you; where untouched African bush disappears into yet another sensational sunset.

Chobe Elephant Camp

In the vast flatness that is Botswana any vantage point is like gold and Chobe Elephant Camp has struck the mother lode. On a rocky hilltop with the Chobe River below, the endless plains of the Kalahari Basin disappear into the horizon: the sense of timeless space is worth a pocketful of gold any day.

Savute Safari Lodge

The Savuti region of the Chobe National Park is one of the best safari destinations in Botswana and thus, one of the best safari destinations in Africa. Situated along the dry Savuti Channel the Savute Safari Lodge plays host to an exciting melee of elephant, zebra, wildebeest, lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and a great variety of antelopes and large herbivores.
