Additional Activities

Spa Treatments - Inspired by the abundance of nature that surrounds the lodge, the fully fledged spa has drawn from that beauty to develop a range of treatments and rituals of the highest quality to relax, restore and revitalize guests. Authentic African design has been integrated with the natural elements surrounding this luxury lodge. This luxurious spa features an indoor spa bath, Vichy showers, hydrotherapy, plunge pool, relaxation area and private treatment rooms, one of which is elevated in the treetops with incredible views over the surrounding landscape. Spa treatments include products from both the Africology and Thalgo ranges.

Tour of the Falls on the Zimbabwean side - Only an hour and a half's drive from the spectacular Victoria Falls, Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is a great base from which to explore this great wonder of the world. Meet the Sanctuary Retreats representative in the reception area of Chobe Chilwero for the transfer across the border to the entrance of the Falls. Transfer time is approximately 1 ½ hours depending on border formalities. From here, the guide will escort guests around the Falls sharing some facts and history along the way. Sanctuary Retreats will supply raincoats during high water months when guests are likely to get wet from the spray of the Falls. The walk is approximately 1½ hours in duration (3km), through the rainforest, stopping at the various viewing points. There are however, three exit paths along the way in case guests get tired. Guests are advised to wear appropriate clothing and shoes for the walk, as well as suitable waterproof protection for camera equipment. Guests will also have the opportunity to do some curio shopping in the adjacent open-air markets before returning to Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero.

Fishing - Guests are taken to Chobe Safari Lodge jetty for the activity. Here they are handed over to the coxswain and agree on a pick up time for the transfer back to the lodge. The best time for fishing at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero is in winter (May, June, July and August) because that's when the water is slowing down. The types of fish guests can expect to catch are Bream and Tiger Fish, on a catch and release basis.


Each room has two showers - one inside and one outside. The freestanding tubs in the bathrooms are big and comfortable. Each cottage has its own private garden where guests can sip cocktails after a day of game viewing, or why not enjoy your very own private dinner served under the African sky
