Chief’s Camp is situated in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is known as the “predator capital” of Africa and is considered to have the finest game viewing in Southern Africa. The area is also home to the Big Five. The camp is situated on the northwestern tip of Chief’s Island, in what is termed seasonal delta. The area is therefore seasonally suffused with floodwaters. Generally, the floodwaters infiltrate the area in June / July and remain for a period of 4 to 5 months.
The camp, constructed on a green-field site, comprises of 12 luxury bush pavilions, three with king beds and nine with twin beds. Each pavilion boasts a spacious seating area and private game viewing deck with hammock. En-suite facilities include an indoor and outdoor shower. The main lodge complex houses the dining area, bar, curio shop, library and reception area. This structure was built into the existing landscape, under a heavy canopy of mature Jackalberry, Sausage and Rain trees. The main deck area is split-level and offers expansive views over the floodplain to the north. The lower level of the deck houses the swimming pool.
Game viewing Apart from its predators, the area is also
renowned for its large concentrations of plains-game, elephant and buffalo.
Both white & black rhino were introduced in 2001 and 2003 respectively.
