Chobe Chilwero

Chobe River, Botswana

At this quietly luxurious lodge, 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, and there is a full-service spa, including a treetop treatment room, as well as a split-level swimming pool. Meals are top notch, enjoyed with good wines, and afternoon tea is served on the shaded lawn. The staff and game trackers at Chobe Chilwero are wonderful, as is the game viewing, whether by boat or by 4WD vehicle. The lodge earned Condé Nast Traveler's “Best Lodge in Botswana” in the Readers’ Choice Awards.
