Undoubtedly the most luxurious lodge in the Riverfront area, Chobe Chilwero is situated in private land on a hill overlooking the river, just outside the national park. Privacy and exclusivity are guaranteed, with 15 large brick and thatch cottages spread out generously in the peaceful gardens. Each has a small private garden area for relaxing drinks and book reading, indoor and outdoor showers, a sunken bath, large comfortable beds and subtle, sophisticated furnishings. The inviting main lodge area combines neutral, clean colour schemes with colourful African artefacts. There are various indoor and outdoor dining spots and an innovative split level swimming pool for cooling down during the afternoon.
Chobe Chilwero is renowned for its opulent spa, where a range of treatments and relaxation havens are offered in a secluded elevated building, arguably the best place to enjoy a massage while on safari in Botswana. More conventional safari activities include river cruises, which can launch direct from the lodge’s jetty, and game drives into the national park. For those looking for pampering, style and tranquillity in Chobe, this is unquestionably the best option.
