Chief's Camp

Chief's Camp

Hailed by leading travel magazines (Condé Nast and Travel & Leisure) as one of Botswana’s top safari destinations, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp will not disappoint even the most discerning traveler. From fine cuisine to excellent wildlife viewing, this exceptional camp is a luxurious safari retreat. It is named after its location on Chief’s Island in well-known Moremi Game Reserve.

Twelve elegant bush pavilions feature their own private viewing deck, perfect for game viewing without interruption. Guests enjoy amenities such as indoor and outdoor showers, generous seating areas, romantically draped beds, and clean-lined, classic décor with an African flair. In addition, other smaller features such as hairdryer, ceiling fan, room safe, emergency intercom, and minibar encourage guests to feel at home.

Offering exhilarating views from its split-level deck, the main camp area also provides guests a refreshing pool to relax in after an exciting day of game drives. Dining options abound, with both continental and full English breakfasts offered daily as well as delectable lunches, high tea, and memorable dinners. Guests can enjoy sundowners around the nearby boma (fire pit). In addition, the main area houses a spa treatment room, bar, curio shop, library, and reception area.

Chief’s Island is the only area in the Okavango Delta that is home to black and white rhino as well as the rest of Africa’s “big five”: lion, leopard, buffalo, and elephant. Known as the “predator capital of Africa,” the surrounding area is also home to genet cat, hyena, and the extremely rare African wild dog. Guests of Chief’s can also expect to view zebra, antelope, giraffe, impala, and over 500 species of birds.

To view these awe-inspiring animals in their native habitat, experienced and well-trained guides lead game drives in both morning and evening. Specially modified open 4x4 provide safe and exceptional game viewing opportunities, while local dugout canoes known as mokoros offer perspective of a different kind. A magical experience, mokoro excursions with an expert local guide allow guests to leisurely explore lily-filled lagoons for hippo, crocodile, and other animals. Scenic helicopter flights are a way for safari-goers to experience the vast expanse of wildlife and landscape that flourishes in the Okavango Delta.
