Wonderful experience at Chilo

We spent 3 days at Chilo a week before Christmas and totally enjoyed the stay. Everything about Chilo was exceptional and we had an awesome experience. We stayed in room 1 which by no doubt has the best view of the river and it was a pleasure to wake up to the sound of hippos. We were on the full board package and the food at Chilo was amazing. The service from the staff was very good and they were more than happy to entertain our very sociable toddler who enjoyed her time in the swimming pool. In addition to the game drive, we booked the beach sundowner which was lovely and provided an opportunity for really amazing pictures (people still doubt the pictures were taken in Chipinge/Chiredzi). We will definitely be going back to Chilo at some point in the future, probably in the cooler months. Be prepared for 41kms on gravel road.

Chilo Gorge Lodge- The unknown secret of Zimbabwe.

Johannesburg, South Africa

We arrived with a great reception from the staff. They showed us to our self catering rooms which in my opinion could pass for a 5 star resort. The game drive and sunset cruise was mind blowing. The lodge is situated in the most ideal location. The staff truly makes this lodge on of the best in Africa. I have traveled over 34 countries in Africa and Chilo Lodge rates as one of my top 3 lodges.
