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.

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.
