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. Sitting above the Chobe River, the lodge offers unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and floodplains as far across as Namibia. This is an incredibly luxurious lodge with just 15 guest cottages, as well as the only full spa on the Botswana safari circuit. 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 which borders Chobe National Park to the north, as well as the elephants for which the park is famous for. Each of the 15 thatched guest cottages has two showers, one inside and one outside. The en suite bathroom also has a large free-standing bath. After a day of game viewing, guests can relax than in their own private garden.
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. Set out on daily game drives in 4x4 vehicles lead by qualified professional guides to 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. Another highly recommended activity is a sunset boat cruise along the river. These specially designed riverboats will bring you up close to the elephants while you sip on cocktails and watch the magnificent African sunset.
