the local language of Setswana, Chilwero means "place of high
view", an apt name for a lodge whose accommodations look out over
lush flood plains towards Namibia on the horizon.
Chobe Chilerwa offers 15 luxury air-conditioned units, each individually
appointed with furniture and fittings from all corners of the continent.
In addition, each unit has its own private "sala", both
indoor and outdoor showers, along with large handcrafted sunken baths.
Chilwero also offers a split-level swimming pool.
come to the
bush to get away from it all - thus Chobe Chilwero has not installed
telephones or televisions in the individual rooms. But if business
cannot be kept at bay, a small business centre offering telephone, email
and fax services is available for guest use.
In addition, a small library has been built which could also be
used for lectures and nature talks.
activities at Chobe are diverse, exciting and tailored to suit
individual requirements. Game drives are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles,
normally in the early morning & late afternoon, under the leadership
guides. The Chobe floodplain is renowned for its concentrations of
buffalo & elephant. The late evening in particular, provides
spectacular viewing. All vehicles are equipped with two-way radio
systems, thus facilitating optimum sightings of the major species.
Other activities include game cruises on the Chobe river in small motorised boats.
If you feel the need to be pampered, there is a beauty therapist based at the Lodge.
