My wife and I were on our honeymoon and had just spent 2 days in Vic Falls. In the essense of time we decided to do our safari in Chobe rather than Kruger. I could not have made a better decision. Upon arrival we were greeted with moist towels to wipe our hands and just refresh ourselves from the drive... More

Despite all was included in the price, the quality of food and drinks were excellent, no cheap stuff. Minibar with unlimited drinks were included as well. Nevertheless the best for us wa the free-of-charge laundry... More

In total we stayed in 4 lodges on our vacation (all part of the Sanctuary group) and this was our least favourite. The hotel building and rooms are lovely from the inside but ugly from the outside. Some of the rooms have no view (just a few bushes and an electric fence). Our room (15) also had the added annoyance... More

I had visited Chobe twice before and was in awe of the number of elephants. However, I was with a group and couldn't get my fill of watching elephants. I came to Chilwero at the recommendation of Nature Expeditions International and could not have been more pleased. The cottages were very nice, and it was great fun watching groups of... More

The beds are extremely comfortable with new mattresses and electric blankets for those chilly nights. The bathroom/dressing area is spacious with two basins, a bathtub, inside and outside showers and view to a... More

This was our last safari camp before going on to Vic Falls and then CapeTown and it is the perfect grand finale to Botswana. I think everyone should stay in the permanent tented camps (and we did love them) but the bungalows at Chobe Chilwero are just fabulous, gorgeous and luxurious. love the bathrooms! The view of the Chobe River... More
