Safari Vacations to Botswana with Sanctuary Chiefs Camp

Discover one of the world’s top safari destinations in the astonishing Moremi Game Reserve and the impressive Okavango Delta as rated by Conde Nast Traveller Magazine when you book your summer vacation to Botswana’s Sanctuary Chief’s Camp. This recognized safari venue hogs a prime spot on the largest island in the Okavango Delta and offers similar lavish comforts as found in a 5-star city hotel. Revel in sophisticated camp accommodation that blends into the charismatic scenery outside. First-class dining and top wines contribute to the status of this safari hideaway that embodies the essence of bush indulgence and wildness.

Sanctuary Chief’s Camp in Moremi Game Reserve is a thriving wilderness where predators lurk in search of plump antelope – look out for African wild dogs, lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Find Chief’s Island in the Mombo Concession, the only place where white rhinos graze in Botswana, along with the rest of the big five, elephants, lions, leopards and buffalos. This section of the island is very wet, especially during the winter months when floodwaters rise and stay in the floodplains for several months. 

The elevated main camp means that guests can witness the rising waters from a safe viewpoint and al the magical wildlife and birds that come with the waters. There are 12 isolated, permanent luxury bush suites with thatched roofs, spacious lounges, indoor and outdoor showers, and private decks with hammocks and deck chairs.

Meet fellow safari lovers in the main camp dining room and buy something traditional at the curio shop. The library is a quiet haven while the stunning swimming pool provides ideal respite from hot middays in Africa. Sip a coffee on the split-level main deck area with undulating views over the floodplains and lush tree thickets. Enjoy game drives on land and canoeing safaris on water along the serene channels during flood season. 

Get to Sanctuary Chief’s camp by landing at its private airstrip just 2.2 km from camp. 



Sanctuary Chief’s Camp in Botswana is the ultimate luxurious bush lodge situated on Chief’s Island within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta. The Moremi Game Reserve is a cordoned-off section of the Okavango Delta, the “predator capital of Africa” featuring African wild dogs, lions, cheetahs and leopards teeming for prey all year round. White rhinos have been introduced to this concession, making it the only place in Botswana where these magnificent animals can be seen in their natural habitat.

A visit to Sanctuary Chief’s Camp will explain why Condé Nast Traveller consistently rates it as one of the top safari destinations in Botswana. The split-level main deck offers unobstructed views over the floodplains while the lower level of the deck boasts a huge swimming pool to cool off after the day’s game viewing. The main area houses a bar, curio shop, library reception and dining area. For a rejuvenating pampering session, choose from a range of treatments at the camp’s treatment room.

The twelve guest chalets are set in a woodland of jackal berry and sausage trees, each one featuring an indoor and outdoor shower, a spacious seating area and a private game viewing deck overlooking the surrounding floodplains of the Okavango Delta.

Guests enjoy twice daily game drives, and during the flood season, guests can take to exploring the quiet waterways of the Delta by guided mokoro trips, in search of a diverse collection of wildlife, including the white rhino seen nowhere else in Botswana. Book an overland tour with Voyage2Africa to experience the Okavango Delta in its prime season, then fly to the Linyanti-Savute Channel for another serene wildlife experience that blows your mind.
