Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge


Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge has a stunning cliff top location overlooking the Save River and is on the edge of the Gonarezhou National Park, part of a huge protected area spanning Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique. This is a truly remote lodge in a pristine wilderness area where privileged visitors can explore the rivers, cliffs, waterfalls and baobab studded bush by vehicle and on foot. 

The area is known for its large elephant population and is also home to lion, giraffe, hippo, hyena and over 400 species of bird. The lodge has conservation and community involvement at its heart and a stay here promises to be a rewarding experience.
