Chobe Chilwero is located on the border of the Chobe National Park, just five minutes by road to Kasane and 1½ hours from Livingstone and Victoria Falls.

The lodge offers nine double and six twin luxury air-conditioned cottages, all of which are individually designed to blend in perfectly with the topography and natural vegetation of the surrounding area. Each thatched cottage has its own en suite bathroom with a large bathtub, indoor and outdoor showers, private garden with a bench and hammock, some come with a "tsala" or private balcony and others with a small patio.

Chilwero has deep red walls and there is a mixed African and Aztec-style decor theme throughout the entire lodge. The main public area include an elegant lounge and dining room, which are linked to outdoor viewing decks. There are some distant views across the flood plains surrounding the Chobe River.

There is a covered veranda linking the open sided dining and lounge areas with beautiful carvings in the wooden support pillars. This area leads down to beautifully kept lawns, stretching to the electric wire that is in place to stop vast amounts of elephant activity in the dry winter months. The well-stocked wine cellar is temperature controlled and houses a large variety of South African and European wines.

The lodge also has a luxurious spa with private treatment rooms, hydro baths, vichy showers and Jacuzzis to ensure a wonderfully relaxing experience for guests. Treatments can be pre-booked so please ask your specialist about this. There is also a swimming pool, library, curio shop and an e-communications center that allows guests to access email and the internet.

Activities from Chobe Chilwero include game drives in customized open 4x4 game viewing vehicles. Sundowner cruises are particularly spectacular for sunsets on the Chobe River, and fishing excursions are also available.
