Available as part of your tailor-made adventures in the region, designed by our destination specialists especially for you
With commanding views of the Chobe River at the northern tip of one of Botswana's most famous National Parks, home to perhaps Africa's greatest concentration of elephant, Chobe Chilwero combines luxury and elegance and is an ideal option to start or end your holiday in Botswana. It also benefits from being within easy striking distance of the majestic Victoria Falls.
All 14 guest cottages have been individually designed to fit in with their topography and vegetation. Each is finished with mosaic floors, traditional fabrics and fitted with air-conditioning as well as ceiling fans. There is one honeymoon suite complete with private plunge pool and a private vehicle for all game viewing activities. Outside there is a shower, seating area and hammock set within a private secluded garden. The bathrooms are luxurious with a separate shower and beautiful Victorian style baths - the perfect place to relax after a busy day game viewing in the Chobe National Park.
Activities & Experiences
Game drives with expert guides take place every morning and afternoon in open sided 4WD vehicles. Sunset cruises on the Chobe River are particularly spectacular viewed from the double deck photographic safari boat with 360 degree swivel seats complete with a bar on the lower deck. Birding safaris, fishing expeditions and exploring the endless tributaries of this mighty river are all highlights.
Facilities & Services
Relax by the swimming pool after your morning game drive or treat yourself to some blissful pampering in the spa where you'll find an indoor spa bath, Vichy showers, hydrotherapy, plunge pool, relaxation area and private treatment rooms - one of which is elevated in the treetops. Cuisine is taken seriously here and a large variety of superior wines, specially selected by experts, are stored in the lodge's own temperature-controlled wine cellar.
Weather & Seasons
Botswana’s winter is May to October when the weather is hot during the day (not stiflingly hot) and cold at night. Botswana's summer months from November to April can be hot and humid, with a chance of rain. Botswana's rainy season runs from mid-December to mid-March. The Okavango Delta provides excellent wildlife viewing year-round.
The lodge is 15 minutes from the airstrip at Kasane or 90 minutes from Victoria Falls Airport.
