Guest Testimonial

Ben Harrison was helpful and knowledgeable. Easy to deal with. (Much better then the Kuoni rep I talked to first, then abandoned!)

- JC, Botswana



Sanctuary Chief's Camp sits silent among the glassy waters of the seasonal flood waters. Sited in the exclusive Mombo concession of the Moremi Game Reserve, this camp has been seamlessly integrated into the environment of winding waterways, reedbeds, mopane woodlands and seasonal lagoons. The area's game is outstanding: lion are frequently seen and the area is one of the few places in Botswana offering a 'Big Five' experience. Access to Sanctuary Chief's Camp is by light aircraft, using the private landing strip just 15 minutes' drive away. The swimming pool is perfect to escape from the heat of the day. Sanctuary Chief's Camp also has a small library. Through the day expeditions with expert guides allow an up-close and personal bush experience, and when the floodwaters arrive from the north, mokoros come into their own, gliding silently along labyrinthine waterways (subject to water levels). More conventional, game-drives provide a succession of outstanding photographic opportunities, getting quietly close to unexpected sights of nature's drama in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The 12 luxury bush pavilions, all set on wooden platforms are spacious offering 141sq metres of living indoor and outdoor space. The features of the pavilions include a private dining area, Nespresso machine, outside seating area, plunge pool, air conditioning and fan and Wi-Fi. The luxury bathrooms feature a spacious outdoor shower, a large bath tub and floor to ceiling windows that look out to the wilderness of the Okavango Delta.
