We spent two nights at the camp and wished we could have stayed longer. Spacious room and bathroom with everything you ever need including outdoor shower and well stocked mini bar. Delicious food, wonderful guide (Carter) who followed the tracks and found a whole family of lions. It was our 45th anniversary and the cook surprised us with a delicious...

Chief's Camp, recently fully renewed, is one of the best camp in Okavango. The facilities are probably the best in the area. There is a good attention to customers from management and staff. The food is also very good at both lunch and dinner. We were not very lucky with the games but this could happen even though we were...

This was our favorite place during our 8 day Sanctuary safari. Chief's Camp was recently redone in 2016 so the lodges are super nice and modern with your private pool, deck and indoor and outdoor showers. The staff were all super nice and friendly and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. There is always so much amazing food...

Sanctuary Chief's Camp in Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana, was superb. Private cabin with all the modern comforts. Great food and very friendly staff. Superb game rides twice daily, with very abundant wildlife everywhere, with excellent opportunities to photograph the "big five" in addition to cheetahs and other animals at close distance. Highly recommended for a memorable safari.

The game viewing was excellent and along with the "big 5", we saw many other wonderful animals. The food was excellent. Our cabin made us feel like we were in a 5* hotel. While in camp. the water hole in front...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sanctuary Chief’s Camp has twelve luxury bush pavilions, all with their own private decks as well as both indoor and outdoor showers. When visiting Sanctuary Chief’s Camp you’ll see why Conde Nast Traveler consistently rates it as one of the top safari destinations in Botswana. The camp is part of the magazine’s exclusive “Platinum Circle” in recognition of its inclusion in the prestigious Gold List for the last five consecutive years.

Each guest pavilion boasts an indoor and outdoor shower, a spacious seating area and a private game viewing deck overlooking the surrounding floodplains of the Okavango Delta.
