Having just been awarded Conde Nast’s top prize of ‘Best Safari Lodge’, Chiefs Camp is now rivaling its neighbor Mombo for the accolade of the best safari camp in Botswana.

There is no doubt that safari here is simply stunning and the quality of game is outstanding throughout the year.

The twelve luxury tents are located in the North-Western sector of Chief’s Island on the Piajio channel in the private Mombo concession of Moremi Wildlife Reserve. The canvas-tented accommodation units feature earthy toned designer decor with natural, textured fibers. All units have en-suite facilities and a private viewing deck.

The camp has a lounge, bar and dining area, a swimming pool and a large viewing deck that looks out onto a seasonal floodplain. At night the floodplain in front is illuminated and views are stunning (although it has to be said that star gazing is therefore somewhat restricted).

Due to its large concentration of elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, wild dog and plains game, Chiefs is synonymous with prime game viewing. Activities consist of game drives in custom-built Land Cruisers and when water levels are high enough, seasonal water safaris. The majority of the concession is designated for accompanied walking safaris. With few roads leading into the camp, guests are assured of an exclusive safari experience.
