We are a family of four and we stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights in December.
Rooms - excellent and well presented. Big bedroom and just as big adjoining bathroom. All rooms are bungalow type and very private with o/s shower. Rooms are very well maintained with full turndown service and many added extras.
Food - the best we have experienced at any of the game lodges we have stayed at in both Botswana and South Africa. Full Dinner service, menus etc. The lovely chef goes out of his way to accommodate any particular needs you may have . Just cannot fault any of the meals ...
Game Drives -we had Keeby as a guide and he is extremely knowledgeable in all spheres of wildlife/birding. We found him to be very friendly, always willing to go the extra mile and very professional. The game viewing was 1st class and the birding is spectacular. Private river cruises on one of the lodges boats are highly recommended and are fantastic.
Lodge - 1st class all around with really friendly management. Nothing is to much for this stream lined outfit of professionals.
We did a lot of homework prior to visiting Chobe. We have travelled to various lodges over the last 15 years and we have never experienced the type of informed and exceptional service of the Lodge Tour Consultant -Gordon -who we consulted with via Sanctuary Retreats office in Joburg.
Highly recommend this site to visit.
- 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
