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.
A land of breathtaking contrasts, Botswana’s natural wonders range from the vast salt pans of the Makgadikgadi, with its granite outcrops and twisted baobabs, to the sandy plains of the Kalahari and the lush oasis of the Okavango Delta. Vast elephant herds splash and spray in the cool waters of the Chobe River and an annual migration of zebra meanders through the Linyanti and Savute. The rock paintings of the San Bushmen survive untouched in the Tsodilo Hills, while their way of life continues undisturbed in the remote Kalahari.
Nowhere else on the planet can you float between reeded channels in a dugout canoe while around you antelope splash through crystal clear water. Yet Botswana also offers excellent land-based game viewing. The Chobe National Park is home to the world’s largest herds of elephant and offers regular sightings of predators, and rare and endangered animals. There is something for everyone in Botswana
With its remote wildlife areas and vast stretches of sparsely populated land, a Botswana safari tour is a very different experience than a safari elsewhere in Africa. Whether in the wide expanses of the Kalahari Desert and the Makgadikgadi Pans or among a network of channels and lagoons in the Okavango Delta Botswana, the scenery is distinctive. The pace of safari is gentler, with time spent slowing down and enjoying the smaller details. Wildlife sightings may not be as frequent as on a South African safari or in East Africa but they are more exclusive, most often only shared with those on your safari vehicle.
