This was our last stop in a phenomenal safari vacation. The staff here is very warm and welcoming and the camp is very well run. The rooms are incredible and the food is excellent. This camp actually surpassed the others and all were terrific. The only negative was the game drives. We had a few spectacular sightings, but much of...

We went with A&K and visited four camps - three in Botswana and one in Zambia. While each was wonderful and unique, Chiefs Camp was by far the greatest. The rooms were incredible - exceptionally large and beautiful. The natives at Camp were incredible - always calling you by name, remembering your needs and wants without having to ask. The...

Just spent 4 days. What a beautiful place. Trevor is a great manager. Friendly and efficient. Our guide Martin was very knowledgeable. Superb food and service. And not to mention resident elephant making life interesting. Our suite was fabulous. Only thing lacking was high speed internet.

I would recommend safaris in Botswana, and Chief's was a great experience for us. It is out of the way, having to get there by light plane, but then that is the beauty. In the 3 days we spent there we only saw 1 truck from a different company. We really had the feeling of the park all to ourselves....

By far this is the pinnacle of Botswana game viewing. While we enjoyed one of the old style chalets, the ambiance of the whole renovated camp was the best. Thanks to Skye we saw magnificent wildlife viewings, a brilliant tracker and driver. The location is magnificent overlooking the water. Absolute oasis. The staff go out of there way to provide...

This newly re-opened camp is highly luxurious: well up to the standard of a five star hotel anywhere in the world and truly astonishing in the African bush. Both rooms and public areas are very spacious and beautifully appointed. Food was excellent: the best of the five Sanctuary Retreats in Botswana and Zambia, where we stayed on our trip. Management...

Our family loved Chief's Camp the best of all the wonderful Sanctuary camps for its perfect size, delicious food, luxurious rooms, extremely friendly and thoughtful staff, and position on the largest island in the Okavango Delta (and so it has the best game). Our safari guide Benson, who works for the hotel, was also THE BEST safari guide imaginable. He...

Our group has been on safari before, but the game and the guides far exceeded every travelers expectation. The "camp" was as nice as many 4-5 star hotels. The staff went above and beyond to get as close to the wildlife as possible, and Geoffrey Kent has truly made this place a must see for beginner and seasoned safari desires....
