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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
