‘Child-Friendly Lodge with Superior Luxury’

Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is located on the border of the Chobe National Park, the second largest national park in Botswana and home to an estimated 70,000 elephants, said to be the highest population of elephants in Africa. In addition to game drives, the lodge also carries out cruise safaris on double-tiered boats where you can observe the game from 360 degree swivel seats. At the camp, children can enjoy their own guided walks and game drives, whilst parents can unwind in the swimming pool or with a soothing treatment at the Spa. In the evening, exquisite cuisine can be savoured in a hilltop lodge overlooking panoramic views of the Chobe River. With their luxurious free-standing tubs, thatched cottages provide a welcoming retreat after a day in the bush.
