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 more service orientated than wildlife orientated,  however 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 stars is saved due to the incredible area its sits within. We feel the other camps within the same area, Mombo and Little Mombo, are pipped 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.

The Camp

Camp Overview


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.

Lodge Layout


Intimate and exclusive, Sanctuary Retreats properties are always set in outstanding natural landscapes. Here in this game reserve, thanks to soul-stirring perspectives from the private pavilions, the lounge deck and your dinner tables, you won’t ever miss the thrill of a viewing.


As well as ensuring a distinct sense of Botswanan place, every encounter and activity feels authentic, thanks to the camp having been reimagined in keeping with local traditions and cultures – which is how we believe responsible tourism should be.

Room Description


Spacious and breezy, at 460 ft2  (140m2) the 10 stylish bush pavilions are some of the region’s largest places to spend the night. Modern enhancements, such as air-conditioning, as well as traditional fans, are among the cut-above amenities.

The bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and folding glass doors leading to outdoor showers and generous tubs are perfect for long, indulgent soaks. In the mood to dine alone together? Relax on your covered deck and look out for elephants, giraffes, buffalo and other wildlife as you enjoy the Camp’s excellent cuisine and wines.


Utmost privacy and superlative comfort are assured from this 2035 ft2 (620 m2) suite, which sleeps up to six – with each guest treated like royalty, but with discretion. Named after the explorer Geoffrey Kent, and inspired by this award-winning photographer and polo-playing philanthropist’s intrepid travels, you can expect characterful interiors as well as a kitchen, indoor lounge, private boma (meaning a ‘safe enclosure’) and secluded deck areas. Included in the perks of this luxurious suite is superb service, which includes your own vehicle and dedicated guide, as well as a personal chef, waiter and a housekeeper.

Camp Environment


A World Heritage Site at the southern edge of the Great Rift Valley, the Okavango Delta is a spectacular patchwork of clear streams, sparkling lagoons, dramatic floodplains, and thriving forests. As well as a staggering topography, this scenic 22,000 square kilometre sprawl is also teeming with thousands of species of exceptional flora and fascinating fauna for you to observe at close range any time of year.


Breath-stealing UNESCO-protected nature in the fulcrum of the Okavango Delta, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp promises unsurpassed beauty care of the exclusive  Mombo Concession on Chief’s Island in the biodiverse Moremi Game Reserve. Historically this expanse was the hunting grounds of the great Batawana chiefs – now it’s a unique reserve which promises the most incredible safari adventures for discerning travellers
