Set high atop the cliffs, looking down on the Save River in southeastern Zimbabwe is Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge. Enjoying a magnificent location overlooking Gonarezhou National Park, Zimbabwe’s second largest National Park, the Lodge has undergone a stunning and extensive refurbishment. Offering luxury all-inclusive lodges, a self-catering camp and a wide range of activities, Chilo ensures guests can truly feel part of untamed Africa. Activities include game drives to the likes of the iconic Chilojo Cliffs and the Tembwehata Water Pan, as well a 3km walking trail from the lodge to a viewpoint looking out over the roaring Chivilila Falls. The lodge also has a very close alliance with the local community and offers cultural visits to Mahenye Village where guests can experience the local Shangaan way of life. The Chilo Gorge Guides are experienced, friendly and professional, offering expert local knowledge. They include Clive Stockil, the founding father of the CAMPFIRE project, whose passion for the African bush and conservation has been recognised with numerous local and international awards. At Chilo Gorge we are committed to maintaining the beauty of the pristine wilderness, the integrity of its native wildlife and to create an unrivalled safari experience for guests. Gonarezhou is blessed with authentic wilderness and guests rarely see another vehicle in the park, but instead get to enjoy abundant and diverse wildlife, birdlife and flora in their natural environment.
