A small, luxury tented camp.
Chief’s Camp is located in northwest Chief’s Island - one of the many seasonal islands created by the floodwaters of the Okavango River. Chief’s camp offers some of the finest game viewing in southern Africa and is the ideal place to spot the 'Big Five'.
Accommodation & Facilities
The 12 luxury guest pavilions are nestled amongst jackalberry and sausage tree woodland, characteristic of this area. Each has its own private deck, outdoor shower and fully equipped indoor bathroom. Mosquito nets and traditional ceiling fans are also a feature of each tent, along with electric blankets to keep you warm at night.
The communal, decked living room affords stunning views of the floodplains and the dining room is centred around a fire pit on the edge of the Piajio Plains, giving guests the opportunity to continue their game viewing whilst enjoying fine food and wines.
Chief’s Camp has been designed with consideration for the environment and all rubbish is removed from the park and disposed of responsibly; in fact, it’s possible to dismantle and remove the entire camp, without anyone ever knowing it was there.
Facilities include a bar, curio shop and library. Guests are able to enjoy a range of spa treatments and there is a refreshing swimming pool to bathe in.
Morning and afternoon game drives venture deep into the bush, in specially modified open 4x4 vehicles. Mokoro (dugout canoe) trips operate during the high season (June-September) - a real introduction to a way of transport still used in the Delta by the ‘river Bushmen’ or BaYei people - subject to sufficient water levels.
Children under 12 years old are not permitted at Chief's Camp.
