A luxurious riverside retreat with luxury, thatched bungalows.
At the northern tip of Chobe National Park, home to one of the greatest concentrations of elephant in Africa, Chobe Chilwero Lodge overlooks the Chobe River and Caprivi flood plain - a great place to explore the diverse wildlife of Botswana. The lodge’s high elevation makes it the perfect spot for watching the stunning African sunset with a sundowner in hand, and viewing the elephants that are often seen swimming in the river nearby. Chobe Chilwero Lodge is within easy reach of the mighty Zambezi River and the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.
