Not Really a Game Lodge but a Spa type Resort that also offers Game Drives and River Cruises/Trips. To make full use of the facilities you need at least 2-3 nights here and enjoy the luxury touches and accommodation.
Chobe is basically Elephants and Hippos with Buffalo's and Impala, in fact the national park is reputed to have over 60,000 Elephants so wherever you go you are almost sure to see them.
The river cruise was basically OK but apart from the elephants (on land) didn't get near enough to other animals to get good photos, bit disappointed on this side, in my opinion could have got allot closer. Elephant’s great, saw lots of them on the water’s edge.
Game Drive was OK but mainly Impala (00's of them) and a few Hippos, Buffalo and other antelope. No Lions, Cheetahs or other cats.
As a resort no complaints and very relaxing, plus the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
- 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
