Sanctuary Chief’s Camp

There’s no denying the appeal of comfort and Chief’s Camp really does give you one of Botswana’s softest landings. Collapse into the air-conditioned rooms, soak up a signature spa experience and lose yourself in this perfect little island oasis in the heart of the Moremi. The game viewing is legendary – as are Percy’s cocktails – and if lions, leopards, wild dogs and cheetahs are on the cards, you won’t be disappointed. Splashing out? Turn a budgetary blind eye and bag the completely private camp-within-a-camp Geoffrey Kent Suite. Here, everything’s exclusively yours, from the 4×4 safari experience to the service staff. (You’re welcome.)

The Sanctuary Chief’s Camp experience

The lodge is located on Chief’s Island, the largest land mass in the delta, offering some of the best game viewing in Botswana. Activities are focused on 4×4 drives and you’re certain to see the big five including rhino. Moremi National Park regulations dictate no walking, no off roading, and no night drives. Mokoro trips are seasonal.

Stuff we love

Perfect island oasis

  • Working off a few of those sneaky little extra safari pounds in the delta-side gym.
  • Scanning the forks of the mopororo trees for dangling impalas on your game drives.
  • Catching everything from a tan to a sunset on the expansive deck overlooking the water.
