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...

This was our last stop in a phenomenal safari vacation. The staff here is very warm and welcoming and the camp is very well run. The rooms are incredible and the food is excellent. This camp actually surpassed the others and all were terrific. The only negative was the game drives. We had a few spectacular sightings, but much of...

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. The rooms were incredible - exceptionally large and beautiful. The natives at Camp were incredible - always calling you by name, remembering your needs and wants without having to ask. The...

Just spent 4 days. What a beautiful place. Trevor is a great manager. Friendly and efficient. Our guide Martin was very knowledgeable. Superb food and service. And not to mention resident elephant making life interesting. Our suite was fabulous. Only thing lacking was high speed internet.

I would recommend safaris in Botswana, and Chief's was a great experience for us. It is out of the way, having to get there by light plane, but then that is the beauty. In the 3 days we spent there we only saw 1 truck from a different company. We really had the feeling of the park all to ourselves....

By far this is the pinnacle of Botswana game viewing. While we enjoyed one of the old style chalets, the ambiance of the whole renovated camp was the best.
