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.

Not only were the rooms luxurious and so comfortable (totally renovated recently), the food fantastic, the game drives superb, but the delightfulness of the staff and their willingness to go so far out of their way to thrill you in any way possible was beyond expectation. Everyone knows your name and all your preferences (would you like sparkling water?) and...

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...

This camp is newly renovated and the rooms are luxurious with every detail you could imagine included. The staff are professional and friendly and it is a great base for exploring the Okavanga delta. The only downside was a large group whereby the interpreter prattled on endlessly and loudly which at times destroyed the peaceful ambiance of the lodge.

The completely rebuilt new rooms at chiefs camp are incredible. They have everything that you could potentially ask for- even a nespresso machine, fridge with drinks and your private plunge pool. It was a dream in the bush. The food is good, staff is very friendly and tries everything to make your stay memorable. Game was a little less than...
