Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is a high quality lodge set high above the banks of the Chobe River. Its facilities include a superbly-equipped spa and a split level swimming pool for pampering and relaxing between safaris.

Your suite has a home-from-home feel, with sunlight flooding in through the main windows, brightly coloured cushions, a chaise longue at the foot of the bed and lots of storage space. A large mosquito net can be drawn right around the bed and bedside tables. Air-conditioning and fans make the room refreshingly cool. To the front there’s a covered terrace with a table and chairs, where you can sip a freshly made cup of tea or coffee. The terrace overlooks your own private garden. Leading off the bedroom the bathroom has a large bathtub, two hand basins and a shower. There’s an additional shower outdoors. The pool suite also has a private plunge pool. There are three family suites, each with two bedrooms.

The main area of the lodge has the same sense of light and space as the cottages. Settle back into an armchair as you leaf through a book, or walk through the doors and find a quiet spot on the terrace to enjoy a chilled drink. Meals are prepared and served with great care, with lunches and dinners accompanied by fine wines from the lodge’s extensive cellar. The spa facilities include a Vichy showers, hydrotherapy, an indoor spa bath and plunge pool. The range of treatments is comprehensive and there are individual treatment rooms including one set in a treetop. In the hottest part of the day you can cool off with a swim in the split-level pool.

Activities include morning and afternoon game drives in Chobe National Park, famous for its large herds of elephants, daytime boat cruises on the river, and romantic sundowner cruises on the double deck boat which has a bar on the lower deck. Catch and release fishing trips and excursions to Victoria Falls can be booked and paid for locally at the lodge. You can also visit the Dipetsana Women’s Bike Shop, set up with funds from Sanctuary Retreats, which provides both an important means of transport to the local community and a valuable income for the women who work there. It is also possible to visit the Caracal animal rescue centre near the lodge.
