Another ‘Sanctuary’ property in a prime location, Chief’s Camp is an upscale camp in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. Part of the Moremi National Park, this area has fantastic scenery and will reopen fully refurbished in June 2016, promising some top facilities.

All of the areas in camp are being refurbished including the main building. A new bar, gym, kids room and library area are being constructed as well as the current dining and lounge areas being extended and the addition of a pizza deck and orientation room.

The activities at Chief’s Camp are centred on the twice daily game drives. Experienced rangers lead drives in open top 4X4 vehicles and the area is well known for its strong game including lion, leopard and wild dog. Being situated on Chief’s Island, the camp also offers Mokoro Canoe excursions seasonally when the area floods. This is a really popular activity that allows guests to see game up close and by a much more relaxed mode of transport.

The accommodation at Chief’s is split into 12 guest pavilions, all of which are being more than doubled in size during the refurbishment, making them some of the largest in the area. They will all have private dining areas, outside decking with private plunge pool, outdoor showers and ensuite bathrooms with floor to ceiling windows. There will also be two new suites with private kitchens, waiters, guides and vehicles.

Children from the age of six will be welcome at Chief’s and a new ‘children’s retreat’ will be a great facility for kids to play. Guides will also teach them about the local fauna and flora.

Chief’s Camp is a well-established safari camp that offers professional service and high quality game viewing. This is a popular choice and we look forward to seeing the improvements that have been made over the last six months.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
