Fodor's Expert Review Chief's Camp
Chief's Island, Moremi Game Reserve, North West, Botswana
Chief's Camp is in the exclusive Mombo Concession of the Okavango Delta's Moremi Game Reserve, the first area to reintroduce both white and black rhino species back into Botswana and probably the greatest predator viewing in the whole country. Built with wood from commercially grown forests using the skills of local builders, the main lodge sits under a canopy of jackalberry, sausage, and rain trees and comprises a split-level deck, with a generous pool overlooking a waterlogged floodplain—at high flood, you can mokoro straight from the lodge. Under a large thatched roof, a plush lounge and bar are adjacent to the dining area where imaginative à la carte dinners are served. If you are in need of some pampering, head to the dedicated spa treatment room for a range of massage and beauty treatments. Children under 9 years old are not allowed.
