Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge

A stunning lodge set on the clifftops overlooking a sweep of the Save River

Beautifully located in the heart of Gonarezhou

Chilo offers access to pristine wilderness and outstanding wildlife viewing

Set overlooking a wide sweep of the Save River, Chilo Gorge boasts one of the most spectacular locations for a lodge in all of Zimbabwe and offers guests a truly memorable safari experience. There is a feeling of understated luxury here, with guests encouraged to treat the lodge as a home away from home in the heart of the bush.

Each of the ten chalets is set along the clifftop with private decking areas at the front which are the perfect spot to relax with a good book in the afternoons. Inside the chalets are all spacious and comfortable with large thatched rooves helping to keep them cool, even in the height of summer. There are mini-bars in the rooms so you can treat yourself to drinks whilst relaxing there in the afternoons. The main area is a lovely, multi-level space with a bar, lounge and dining area as well as a small library, Wooden steps lead down to a sparkling swimming pool, a lovely spot to sit back, relax and take in the afternoon sunshine. Despite the remote location the food at Chilo is superb and meals are served in a variety of inspiring locations including, when the weather allows, out on the deck.

Chilo offers guests the chance to morning, late afternoon and full day safaris, with the programme varying depending on the time of year. Guided walks are a great way to enjoy this pristine wilderness and learn more about the smaller things, often missed on game drives, whilst guests on longer stays can enjoy trips to the Chilojo Cliffs and Chivalia Falls.
