The team at this lodge truly understands the meaning of "spoiling you rotten'!. Every detail is perfect. Reception - we were greeted by a wonderful receptionist, who made it clear that we were HER guests throughout our stay!. You are treated to a refreshing drink and then gentle stroll thorough the grounds. Rooms are ready for you -- and what... More

What is there to say other than I/we loved everything about this resort and the experience of a lifetime it offered us. From the facilities (which were impeccably and tastefully appointed) to the staff who were consistently attentive, helpful and friendly, to the game park itself which was full of wild animals free to roam in a 1.1 million hectare...

Our recent trip to Chobe was spectacular. We had a very war welcome from the hotel staff. The property facing the Chobe River is enchanting and the staff was great. Botzwanan people are very warm and make you really feel at home.

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... More

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... More

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
