Meals at Sanctuary Chobe Chilwero are all freshly prepared. The lodge prides itself on its personalised service and this includes your culinary preferences and needs.
From the lodge’s hilltop position, enjoy far reaching panoramic views over the Chobe River and floodplain below while indulging in fine dining and exquisite cuisine.
A hearty full English and continental breakfast is prepared by Chef Phinias and served before departing for your morning game viewing activity. After experiencing the magnificent Chobe National Park you will be taken back to the lodge for lunch where you could make your own pizza or enjoy a delicious three course plated meal. For additional food before or after your afternoon game viewing activity, an all day snack menu is available and can be ordered straight to your suite. During your afternoon game drive or sundowner cruises you might stop for classic sundowner drinks and canapés - the only way to celebrate yet another beautiful African sunset! Enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the terrace of the lodge before sitting down for a three course dinner. Please let us know if you are celebrating a special occasion? We could arrange a special romantic private dinner right under the African sky.
Botswana is well known for its mouth-watering beef so it is no surprise that Executive Chef Phinias's signature dish would be a Botswana beef fillet served with seasonal vegetables. Other dishes that have proved to be amongst guest favourites is grilled impala with port wine and chocolate sauce on roast sweet potatoes. Follow your meal with wine from our small air conditioned wine cellar which houses a variety of South African wines - the perfect complement to a delicious meal. A variety of vegetarian dishes are also available. Like most chef's, Phinias is passionate about his food and it's preparation, always taking the time to greet guests and find out more about their dietary requirements. His personal touch in this regard is much appreciated and he is regularly asked for his recipes by guest.
