Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero Review

Easily accessible from both the Zimbabwe and Zambian side of Vic Falls, this lodge is perched on a small hill on the border of Chobe National Park (Chilwero means "high view" in Setswana, the national language). Its 15 spacious thatch cottages are the ultimate in luxury: en-suite bathrooms with sunken baths, private gardens with hammocks, and viewing decks with stunning vistas of the Chobe River. Catch up on the real world (if you can bear to!) in the communications center, or pamper yourself with an in-room beauty treatment. All the Chobe activities are available, from walking safaris and fishing to game drives, canoeing, day trips to the nearby Vic Falls, and the must-not-miss sunset cruises. Although you're not really in a wilderness area, the privacy and exclusivity of the lodge will persuade you that you are miles away from civilization.

    Luxury in Africa

    We absolutely loved this place. Food, room , service, all top of the line. My only complaint is that I couldn't afford to stay longer.
