Chobe River, Botswana
At this quietly luxurious lodge, you enjoy spacious thatched chalets appointed with touches such as a sunken bath, indoor and outdoor shower, private garden, and a terrace overlooking the magnificent Chobe River. The elegant bar, lounge, and dining room have spectacular viewing decks for watching the sunset on the river. Meals are top notch, enjoyed with good wines, and afternoon tea is served on the lawn under shady trees. The staff and game trackers at Chobe Chilwero are wonderful, as is the gameviewing, whether by boat or by 4WD. The lodge earned Condé Nast Traveler “Best Lodge in Botswana” in the Readers’ Choice Awards.
