This exclusive safari camp comprises top-notch accommodation on iconic Chief’s Island – the largest in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Twelve secluded bush pavilions with thatched roofs are located in the Moremi Game Reserve with views of the Piajio floodplain and guests all but guaranteed predators sightings as this area is generally thick with game. During the flood season guests are able to explore the miraculous waterways of the Delta by mokoro (dug-out canoe) in search of a diverse array of wildlife, including the elusive white rhino seen nowhere else in Botswana.
Twice daily games take place in 4x4s that seat six, meaning each guest has a coveted ‘outside seat’. After returning, be welcomed back to Chief’s Camp with refreshing hot towels and cool drinks. Birders should be in the look-out for jewel-like malachite kingfishers, while leopard frogs cling to the reeds of the Delta. Chief’s Camp is well laid-out, with a swimming pool, open-plan bar, safari shop for last-minute essentials and tranquil views over Piajio. Sisal, leather, wicker and wood combine to create tasteful and comfortable interiors. The wellness studio is on tap for massages, facials, scrubs and nail treatments during the sunny afternoons between a delicious lunch and your late-afternoon game drive.
