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...

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.

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...

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.
