Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge

Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge

The main Lodge is constructed in stone, thatch, ancient leadwood and teak, to blend effortlessly with the surroundings.

Chilo Gorge is a luxury safari lodge on the edge of the stunning wilderness of Gonarezhou National Park, in South-East Zimbabwe. We offer guests access to the pristine wilderness of Gonarezhou, with the authentic animal interaction which goes with a park which is rarely visited. Gonarezhou is a gem amongst African parks, and offers experienced safari travellers and increasingly rare ability to explore untouched Africa. In addition, through the work of Chilo director, Clive Stockil, there is a very powerful community and conservation story which is at the centre of how the lodge operates.

Chilo Gorge Tented Camp is a semi-luxury seasonal tented camp on the banks of the Runde River. This is an ‘old Africa’ camping experience, with a good standard of comfort, and a great place from which to explore Gonarezhou by vehicle and on foot.

Ivory Trail Adventure is a mobile fly camping experience, allowing experienced safari travellers the ability to explore remote corners of this large park at a relaxed pace.

Overview

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.
