Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is a luxurious riverside retreat in the heart of the bush on the edge of Chobe National Park, home to the world's largest remaining population of elephants. Sitting above the Chobe River, the lodge offers unparalleled panoramic views across the islands and floodplains as far across as Namibia. This is an incredibly luxurious lodge with just 15 guest cottages, as well as the only full spa on the Botswana safari circuit. 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.

Our Thoughts

The granddaddy of Chobe – and the best and most luxurious ‘hotel’ in the park.

The guest cottages are very special, as are the riverside location and the standards of guiding offered. Ideal for those who want to go on safari but who, at sundown, like the comforts and facilities of a hotel. Sybarites should note that the spa is the best in Botswana.
