Chief's Camp is located on famous Chief's Island in the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
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. 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.
Guests can explore the Delta in modified open 4 x 4 vehicles on morning and afternoon game drives with expert guides. On the plains one may find the roaming lions that prey on the thousands of antelope, zebra and buffalo who live here all year round. There are also healthy populations of wild dog. These extremely rare predators have been hunted to the point of extinction in most areas of Africa and this is one of their last strongholds. There are several local lion prides and leopards, genet cats and hyena are in abundance.
Mokoros, local dugout canoes, offer a different perspective of the bush in the company of a highly trained local guide. Each June the whole area around the camp floods and turns the Okavango Delta into a labyrinth of lily-filled lagoons and streams where hippos fight for bathing rights and crocodiles wait for unwary antelope to linger too long over a drink. Poling through the byways created by the floodwaters is a magical experience that allows guests to get very close to the biggest of game and to see the world from a totally different angle.
