We are delighted to announce a major investment programme for our luxurious flagship camp – Sanctuary Chief’s Camp. Renowned for its exceptional levels of service and customer experience, our exclusive camp is consistently rated as one of the top safari camps in Botswana. It is located on Chief’s Island in the Mombo Concession of the famous Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta, an area known as the ‘predator capital of Africa. We look forward to welcoming guests to the new-look camp from June 2016.

Named after Chief Moremi, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp is located in the world-renowned Moremi Game Reserve. The luxurious camp is ideal for an exciting African safari due to the vast numbers of animals that congregate all year round. Chief’s Island is one of the many islands created by the seasonal flood waters of the Okavango Delta and is well-known for the finest game viewing in Southern Africa. With the finest cuisine and wines, the camp is also consistently rated as one of the top safari camps in Botswana by Condé Nast and Travel & Leisure.
