Situated in the Gonarezhou National Park, Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge holds an excellent cliff top location that offers guests' fantastic views of the Save River, just below, and the lush greenery that lines its banks. The lodge has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and boasts higher levels of luxury and incredibly knowledgeable guides, whose passion for the wilderness is certainly infectious. With the banks of the river just below it, game viewing from the lodge is made easy; the water source is particularly popular with buffalo and elephant.
Accommodation is very comfortable and well designed. Rooms are divided between 10 luxury lodges and 4 self-catering lodges. The 10 luxury en-suite lodges feature a mini-bar, either twin or king sized beds, with cotton sheets, and a private balcony which naturally affords excellent views and is the perfect place for casual game viewing in-between activities. The 4 self-catering lodges are set slightly apart from the camp's main area, stealing some extra privacy and great for a more independent and intimate experience at Chilo. For families or larger groups a family lodge is provided, sleeping up to 6 people and possessing a kitchen and private garden.
Scheduled flights from Harare to Buffalo Range followed by a 1. 45 min transfer.
Visits to the Chilojo Cliffs, game drives and walking safaris, cultural interaction, sundowners on the banks of the Save River, a visit to the Tembwehata Water Pan and canoeing on the Save River is offered during the rainy season.
