Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge
- 12/ 3/ 2013 <--Prev : Next-->
It is Zimbabwe's best kept secret ! - The Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge in the Ghonarezhou game reserve.
HeeHoo and I managed to find two glorious days to spend in this amazing corner of the world, far from the madding crowd where the peace and quiet was magic and the staff at the lodge have absolutely perfected the art of "total spoiling" their guests.
Chilo is set high on top of spectacular cliffs overlooking the legendary Save/ Sabi River in the southeastern corner of Zimbabwe.
The lodges are tastefully furnished in the Shangaan style, the style of the gentle people from this region. Set into the exquisite cool canopy of the forest, with glorious views of the river and with glassed doors opening onto private balconies, this is a most special destination for locals and tourists alike.
Also in this area are the majestic Chilojo Cliffs which form an impressive backdrop to the meandering Runde River. The Save River and its seasonal waters offer the opportunity for game cruises up the river to the magnificent Chivirira Falls or you can take an exhilarating walk to the falls with a guide if you are feeling energetic!
The lodge offers trips into the national park, and when we were there we discovered that this is one of the world's prime birding destinations!
At Chilo Gorge they are committed to maintaining the beauty of the pristine wilderness, whilst always preserving the integrity of its native wildlife and thus creating an unrivalled safari experience for guests.
Ghonarezhou means Sacred Totem of the Elephants and Ghonarezhou is blessed with authentic wilderness where guests rarely see another vehicle in the park, but can enjoy abundant and diverse wildlife, birdlife and flora in their natural environment.
The lodge also has self-catering facilities at Nhambo Self Catering Camp where families can enjoy the unique beauty of this truly special Zimbabwean gem.
