The Ultimate Luxury Safari Experience
Located on Chief’s Island in the exclusive Mombo Concession of the famous Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp has a strong reputation for offering guests one of the top safari experiences in Botswana. And it’s about to get even better.
This award-winning camp re-opens on 1st June 2016 after an extensive rebuild and redesign. The 12 bush pavilions are some of the largest in the area (141 m2) and each feature a private dining area, a tranquil outside seating area and a terrace pool – all perfect for absorbing the surrounding plains and majestic African skies. Private dining is available for guests on their covered deck from where elephants, giraffes, buffalo and other wildlife can be seen.
The new bathrooms offer a spacious outdoor shower, a large bath tub, beautiful floor to ceiling windows and folding glass doors with an amazing outlook over the surrounding waters of the Okavango Delta.
New Geoffrey Kent Luxury Suite
The new Geoffrey Kent Luxury Suite, named after the eponymous safari pioneer, consists of two pavilions and features a private bar, boma, lounge and kitchen, all serviced by a private house-keeper, waiter, guide and vehicle.
The diverse landscape of the Okavango Delta means that both land and water safaris are available at Sanctuary Chief’s Camp. Guests are able to enjoy thrilling guided game drives lead by highly qualified professional guides in a new fleet of customised game drive vehicles. Expert guides are on hand to share a wealth of wildlife knowledge, taking guests deep into the bush on morning and afternoon game drives. On the plains, watch the roaming lions that prey on the thousands of antelope, zebra and buffalo who live here all year round. Spot leopard, hyena and cheetah, perhaps even the rare wild dog. The decked lounge, dining area and atmospheric fire pit all overlook expansive floodplains so that guests can continue game viewing in camp.
The Okavango Delta is flooded for much of the year and when it is, guests can experience the gentle pace of a poled mokoro excursion along the narrow Delta channels. Guests sit back and relax as they glide through lily ponds on local dugout canoes while watching the surrounding wildlife (available January – October, subject to water levels).
Indulgence in the Delta
A range of spa treatments are available from the spa treatment room. Everything about the camp and treatment room is environmentally friendly, including the Africology spa treatment range used. Guests can choose from a range of facial skin care treatments such as the balancing rose facial. Body therapies include an African heated stone massage and the body rituals include a tropical immune boosting mud body wrap. The perfect way to end a day of spectacular game viewing.
