Chief’s Camp, situated on the edge of the waterways, and hidden amongst a grove of jackalberry trees, takes only 24 guests in 12 recently upgraded luxurious yet secluded bush pavilions, each with a large bed, safari furniture, mini-bar, African-themed décor, ceiling fan and a large en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. At the front of each pavilion is a spacious balcony with fine views across the Okavango Delta. The luxurious Geoffrey Kent Suite has two pavilions, your own private private bar, boma, lounge and kitchen. You’re looked after exceptionally well by a private house-keeper, waiter, guide and vehicle.
The range of facilities at Chief’s are second to none, including a dining area, comfortable lounge, a library where you can read up on the animals, birds, trees and other attractions that you have seen, a curio shop, internet area, a large wooden deck, a pool and a new sala where, at an additional cost, it is possible to enjoy massages and other treatments.
The standard of management and cuisine is excellent at Chief’s Camp, as is the quality of the guiding. Highly knowledgeable guides will take you on safari mainly by open vehicle. There are large numbers of predators here so walking is not permitted but depending on water levels you can be punted along the waterways of the Delta in a mokoro canoe. Your guides will be able to explain every last detail of the animals and birds behaviour, life pattern and family habits, and are equally knowledgeable about those smaller details of bush life, which are just as fascinating as the more obvious aspects.
