The Chief's Camp is a luxury bush camp located on an island in the Mombo Concession of the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, Southern Africa. This vibrant area is home to the wild dog, lion, cheetah, and leopard. Since the introduction of white rhino into this area, this is the only place in Botswana where these rare animals can be seen in their natural environment. The Mombo Concession has the Big Five. The camp is on the northwestern tip of the island, in what is termed the seasonal delta. This region of Botswana is therefore seasonally covered with flood waters. The flood waters infiltrate the area in June & July and remain for 4 to 6 months.

Due to the Lodge's unique layout, guests have the unique chance to view game without even having to leave the camp. The passing game can be observed from the comfort of the deck. Shaded from the heat of the day by a beautiful grove of jackal berry trees, the camp is very remote and therefore very tranquil. Twelve secluded, permanent luxury bush pavilions are designed for ultimate privacy and comfort. Each cottage at the camp features a thatched roof, a spacious seating area, en-suite facilities with indoor and outdoor showers as well as a private game viewing deck, which are furnished with a hammock and deck chairs.

Each guest room is provided with a large mosquito net around the bed, two wardrobes, a bookshelf, writing desk and a mini bar. The main lodge at Camp houses the dining room, a curio shop, the library as well as the reception area. A beautiful swimming pool is available to guests, and a range of spa treatments are offered by the Lodge's beauty therapist in a poolside treatment during the high season only. Each room at camp is equipped with a hairdryer, ceiling fan, in-room safe, emergency intercom, and minibar.

The central 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. Electricity, 240 volts, is supplied by synchronised, silent generator system allowing 24-hour power supply.

Activities

Game viewing opportunities consist of daily excursions in open-sided 4x4 vehicles and private canoe trips along the narrow Delta channels during the flood season which is subject to the water levels. Expert guides are always available to the guest to offer a wealth of wildlife knowledge to assist them to make the most of these rare and unusual opportunities. Apart from its predators, this area is also renowned for its large herds of plains game, elephant and buffalo. Both white & black rhino were introduced in 2001 and 2003.

Climate and temperatures

The raining season in this area of Botswana begins late December and lasts through early March. This season is characterised by hot sunny days with afternoon thundershowers. The average daily temperatures range from 20° C-38° C(68° F-100° F). This season is favourable for the viewing of newborn mammals, summer flowers and the migration of rare birds. Predator viewing during this time remains quite right.

The dry season runs from late March to early December. The days are nearly guaranteed as fine, and the temperatures vary according to the season. In winter (June-August) temperatures can plummet as low as 0 C(32 F) at night with a daily maximum of around 26° C-28° C (78° F-82° F).In autumn (April-May) temperatures are warmer ranging from 10° C-32° C (50° F-89° F). Spring (September-November) tends to get hotter again with temperatures reaching between 15° C-38° C (59° F-100° F). The drier months between June and November are considered to be peak game-viewing months.
