Chobe Chilwero was a great base to go on safari in Botswana. The lodge is very comfortable and the food very good. It was well organised and we were never kept waiting. However, the main thing that really impressed us was the staff. They were very friendly and extremely helpful. We were a group of 7, but every staff member...

Everything you thought should be catered for it, 5 star meals and service are the norm. The twice daily safaris are the best you do water and land and their guides and trackers are some of the best I have seen. The rooms all have exceptional views of the Chobe River and their are baboons and wort hogs wandering around...

My Partner Dale, and I, spent 2 nights here following on from 3 nights at Sanctuary's Stanley's Camp in the Okavango Delta. I thought Stanley's was brilliant, and Chilwero carried on the Sanctuary's experience with equally friendly staff, amazing food, incredible wildlife and first class accommodation. Unlike Stanley's where you stay in luxury tents, At Chilwero you get rooms, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is a luxurious riverside retreat in the heart of the bush, with all of the facilities of a larger resort. 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, 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 ensuite bathroom also has a large free-standing bath. After a day of game viewing, what better way to relax than in your own private garden with a cocktail? Or if the fancy takes you, why not have your gourmet dinner served right here under the African sky. Coffee stations are now available for guest use in the rooms. Our honeymoon suite at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero features a private plunge pool and deck area where guests will be able to enjoy private dinners for two under the stars (weather permitting) and special turn downs every night. Guests booking this room will automatically receive a private vehicle and guide for all game viewing activities. Coffee stations are now available for guest use in the rooms. ... more   less
