Chiefs Camp is a 5 star establishment due to a combination of its service levels and game experience.

The accommodations are huge and the whole inference of the lodge is service orientated as well as wildlife orientated. Chiefs Island is one of the most game rich environments in Botswana, but that is exactly why it scores so highly.

More about Abercrombie & Kent styling than a locational experience. Its 5 is due to the incredible area its sits within. We feel the other camps within the same area, Mombo and Little Mombo, pip Chiefs to the post at being the best. The accommodation and dining is fantastic, but its is a little on the expensive side in peak season but offers a very good low price in the green season. Nonetheless, we feel it still deserves its rating.

This compelling destination is celebrated for its wealth of animals and birds and you’re invited to spy elephant, hippo, lion, giraffe, rhino, cheetah, leopard, wildebeest, impala and rare African painted dogs, the most endangered predator in southern Africa – all in one day, and all to yourselves. Guests tell us they feel as though they’re the first to explore this magical terrain, which gives you the rare sense that you’re the only ones there on safari.

Welcome to the former royal hunting reserve of Chief Moremi, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Wildlife and wilderness are as abundant as action and adrenaline and refinement and relaxation at this remarkable remodelled luxury camp. Personal service, an extraordinary setting, exceptional viewing and enthusiastic expert guides are the hallmarks of a Sanctuary Retreats experience – here at Sanctuary Chief’s Camp we promise a unique attention to detail and strong environmental and philanthropic credentials to ensure the ultimate luxury safari experience.

Sanctuary Chief’s Camp’s sophisticated accommodation with natural hues and materials that complement the charismatic scenery and the first-class dining and wines, regularly earns rankings among the world’s top safari destinations from arbiters such as Condé Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure.

All the main and public areas of the camp have been extensively refurbished in a ‘safari chic’ style including a newly designed bar and library area, the extension of the dining room and the addition of a pizza deck with pizza oven. A new orientation room where guests can learn more about the Delta before going on game drives has been added as well as a gym and kids play room.

When you visit Sanctuary Chief’s Camp you’ll see why Condé Nast Traveler consistently rates it as one of the top safari destinations in Botswana. The camp is part of the magazine’s exclusive “Platinum Circle” in recognition of its inclusion in the prestigious Gold List for the last five consecutive years.
