The main Lodge is constructed in stone, thatch, ancient leadwood and teak, to blend effortlessly with the surroundings. We have extended the outside wooden decking areas as part of our refurbishment, to create a spacious and serene viewing platform down the gorge, across the Save River into Gonarezhou. Whether you choose a refreshing dip or to relax on a pool lounger with a drink, our swimming pool is positioned perfectly with some of the best views in the Lodge. During the winter months, guests enjoy swapping safari stories around our fire pit or head upstairs to our Library, which contains a large selection of wildlife literature and has plenty of quiet corners for guests to curl up with their favourite book. All Inclusive Luxury King/Twin Lodges Our beautifully appointed, thatched Luxury King/Twin Lodges are largely inspired by nature, but with a designer’s passion for elegance, simplicity and luxurious touches. Locally crafted intricate reed weaving, individually carved jacaranda headboards, luxurious cotton bedding, and a mini bar have all been carefully chosen for your comfort and enjoyment. Each Lodge has its own private balcony offering spectacular sunsets and the opportunity for you to relax watching our resident elephants, crocodiles and hippos in the deep river trench that flows all year or to observe the diverse number of other river visitors through the day. Each Lodge provides: • Spectacular views • Private balcony and seating area • Mini bar • Tea & Coffee facilities • Mini-safe • En-suite bathroom with spacious shower and separate w.c. • Complimentary toiletries
Imagine spending a few days in a private clifftop chalet with plenty of space, light and access to the outdoors? You can do this with us, when you book your unique safari adventure into Zimbabwe’s famous Gonarezhou National Park where nature is still wild and the silence is golden. We can ensure that if you try Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge you will be able to go bush trekking and experience a safari with a difference. The Shangaan design of these elegant villas adds something special when you return from a long game drive and all you want is that luxury – to make your own tea and coffee, to sip a drink from the mini bar and to simply stand under the high pressure hot shower for a few minutes before watching the wildlife from your private patio. Families can spread out into the four self-catering cabins in Nhambo Camp where the private plunge pool, barbeque area and ample kitchen mean that a group of friends and family can do their own thing in complete privacy. You can enjoy delicious meals at the main camp, however, if cooking is not on your agenda. Family packages are hot at Chilo Safari Lodge. Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge is one of those magnificent locations that you wished you had known about much earlier in your life! We bet that you did not know that the spectacular Gonarezhou National Park on the Save River in South East Zimbabwe actually connects with the famous Kruger National Park in South Africa and to Mozambique in the east? And the best part about the lodge is that it is committed to sustainable tourism, ensuring that the wildlife and the community are the main beneficiaries from your safari in Africa – conservation is key to tourism in Zimbabwe.
