  • There is a dining area, which is set up under the stars for the perfect al fresco dining experiences at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A bar and seating area is set up under large, shaded trees, and a canvas gazebo is set up when it rains.
  • Game viewing experiences begin at camp where superb sightings of waterbuck, buffalo, kudu, African wild dog, hippo, and nyala are enjoyed regularly. An expert guide will conduct daily safari activities that explore the area in great detail.

Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Gonarezhou National Park is perhaps Zimbabwe’s most unexplored wildlife territory, making it one of the most exclusive safari experiences one can enjoy in Africa. Located in the south of the country, way off the popular tourism route, it is quiet and serene, and full of undisturbed natural sights. The Chilo Gorge Tented Camp safari experience involves both game drives and walking safaris in the region, conducted by a private, professional guide. Natural pans and rivers offer spectacular birding opportunities, while lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah, and wild dog make this a predators paradise, and of course the great herds of elephants will astonish. Full day or half day safaris to Chilojo Cliffs, Tembwahata and Machanu Pans, the northern and southern banks of the Runde, or the Runde/Save confluence.
