Chief’s Camp lies deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta, 19 km from Mombo Camp, an area renowned for its abundance of wildlife, ensuring plenty of excellent game-viewing opportunities. The area is particularly well-known for its large concentrations of elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah and Painted wild dog, to name but a few.
The Chief’s Island region is unique in that large numbers of plains-game and predators are found here throughout the year. One of Africa’s most untamed and unexplored areas, this seasonal delta undergoes constant change. Lagoons, winding waterways, reed beds, and mopani and acacia woodlands make up this rich landscape.
From deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta, on the north-western tip of Chief's Island, a luxury lodge aptly named Chief's Camp has been constructed. Situated on a virgin site in the Piajio Channel, Chief's Camp is located in the Okavango Delta's Mombo Tourist Zone in Botswana.
The camp, constructed on a green-field site, comprises 12 luxury bush pavilions, three rooms with king-size beds and nine rooms with twin beds. With the expertise of skilled interior designer, Caline Williams-Wynn, the décor features earthy tones and natural and textured fibres, resulting in a contemporary African feel.
Each pavilion boasts a spacious seating area and private game-viewing deck with hammock. En-suite facilities include an indoor and outdoor shower, and each room is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, in-room safe, emergency intercom, and minibar.
The main deck area is split-level and offers expansive views over the floodplain to the north, while the lower level of the deck houses the swimming pool. Chief's Camp offers the ultimate in lodge luxury, providing all the necessary modern conveniences whilst maintaining an air of subtle and understated elegance.
The lodge has been skilfully integrated into the landscape and promises an immersive African experience, so much so that guests can often view game without even leaving camp. The camp's main lounge area houses a reference library and binoculars are available for guests who may have forgotten theirs. Game-viewing platforms in the camp complete the diverse viewing options.
