Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge
A member of the Expert Africa team first visited Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge back in the late 1990’s. Since then the lodge’s fortunes have followed a similarly rocky path to that of Zimbabwe over the last decade. For much of the last ten-years Chilo Gorge stood vacant, moth balled while its owners waited for the economic situation in the country to improve.
Our view of Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge
Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge has recently been given a new lease on life and although no one from Expert Africa has visited the lodge in its latest iteration we will be doing so in 2013. Until then we’ll reserve absolute judgment but we are cautiously optimistic that, with the team in place and from the reports we’ve received from our associates on the ground in Zimbabwe, this is going to be a great place from which to visit the vast and still relatively unknown Gonarezhou National Park.
The lodge itself benefits from an elevated, picturesque location with fantastic views from the chalets and main area. All of the various activities offered by Chilo Gorge are led by top guides and the fundamentals of a great lodge are all their.
We’ll be sure to update this review as soon as we have a more first-hand account of Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge but until that time please do not hesitate to give us a ring should you want an update, or to ask any more specific questions on this great new offering in Zimbabwe’s deep south-east corner.
