An outstanding camp for exploring Chobe National Park and the Chobe River
We spent 3 nights at this camp. We came to see the elephants in the national park during the dry season but saw so much more. The camp is just outside the Park and situated on a rise overlooking the Chobe River - beautiful sunsets. The accommodation is excellent, very spacious and clean and especially on the hotter days, the air conditioning was greatly appreciated. The camp is very well run (Irvine the manager) and the staff superb, friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay memorable (special thanks to O.B. and Ismael in the restaurant and the house keepers Maria and Nankondo). Baboons have free rein through much of the day including many youngsters. The food was very good with several choices at each meal. Our guide for the game drives was Kux and he was a real joy to have. Very knowledgeable, and always smiling and joking. He was always able to find the animals (once stopping the Land Cruiser suddenly to view a monitor lizard on a tree that we only saw with great difficulty even when stopped. He was able to get great positions for viewing the animals including a lion pride with cubs, and the regular assortment of hippos, giraffes, kudus, impala etc. Of course we came to see elephants and there were hundreds of them in various herds going down to the river in the early day and going back up into the brush in the evening. The highlight of the visit was an afternoon spent on the river in Sanctuary's own pontoon boat having lunch and watching herds of elephants swimming across the river and crossing into Namibia for better foraging. Would highly recommend Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero especially during the dry season.
Nice place to wind down
We appreciate how helpful the camp staffs were when we had to extend our stay at Chilwero, especially the manager KB and our guide Bobby. We did the boat safari and game drives in Chobe NP. We like Bobby, enjoy his stories, and think he is a very pleasant guide. The room is spacious and the food is great.
one of the best
this is a beautiful lodge ,nicely set on the outskirt of the national park but a lot of animals have set camp in and outside the fence...very friendly welcome from the staff singing and dancing on our arrival , the food and the accomodation was great..we had a lot of good game drives specially chasing a leopard near the airport and being warned by an aggressive elephant . the attack stopped about 30 meters from our vehicle ,his mate probably told him that we were not the cat , the national park was full of animals..friendly elephants , giraffes , impalas , kudus , crocs hippos and two lionesses with five cubs and ugly marabous ...we really enjoyed the place...coming to Botswana was a trip...crossing the Zambezi from Zambia by boat we landed in Zimbabwe, two steps we were in Botswana and 50 meters across the road was Namibia very exiting indeed
A vacation resort as perfect as you can get
We enjoyed our stay at this world class resort. Food, service, and safari we're excellent. It can say enough good things about our stay. The staff got us everything we needed. For example our door was working properly and with minutes the maintenance person fixed it at 20 hh.
Fantastic from beginning to end!
This was the most fantastic game lodge that I have stayed at. The staff were incredible – always so cheerful and friendly, and couldn’t do enough for you, whether it was the manager or the person who walked you to and from your room. Wonderful to be greeted on arrival by the staff singing to you. Each time you arrived at the Lodge [from game drives as well as first arrival] you were always met by the staff and they always gave you a cool towel. I had an excellent room with all mod cons, including a free minibar with wine of my choice if it was not there. Room service snacks were available, so I often had lunch in my room while I did my photos after a game drive. My guide, Leonard, was exceptional. He took us out twice a day in the morning in the park and in the afternoon usually on the river. We saw so much game it was incredible. I think he has binocular eyes! They have a lovely pool so you can relax there between drives - while I was there Bushbucks, mongoose and baboons visited the pool. The whole experience of Chilwero was amazing, and I was made to feel important by every member of the staff. Would love to return!
