In the eastern section of the vast Okavango Delta, lies Moremi Game Reserve, a region of starting contrasts – a waterless centre of savannah and dry woodland surrounded by lily-filled waterways, scattered flood plains, lagoons, riverine forest and palm fringed islands. Chief Island is one of these islands, and considered as having the finest game-viewing in Southern Africa.
Consistently rated by Condé Nast Traveller as one of the top safari destinations in Botswana, Chief’s offers guests an authentic yet luxurious African safari. Shaded by jackalberry trees, and fringed by papyrus banks, Chief’s has been skilfully integrated into the landscape enabling guests to view game from the comfort of camp. The elegant Chief’s Camp offers superb service, fine cuisine, luxurious accommodation and superb opportunities to view the Big Five, all in splendid seclusion.
Chief’s Camp offers twelve luxurious thatched bush pavilions in a shady jackalberry and sausage tree woodland. Earthy tones and natural fibres imbue the secluded units with a distinctly African ambience. The pavilions offer four poster beds, swathed in mosquito netting, a spacious lounge area and both indoor and outdoor showers. Hammocks and deck chairs on the private, expansive timber decks afford guests a comfortable spot from which to absorb the sights and sounds of the African bush.
Large numbers of plains game and predators are found throughout the year. After the recent introduction of rhino to this concession, the area is home to the Big Five. Predators abound, and include several lion prides, leopards, cheetah, hyena, and the rare and endangered Wild dog. Large herds of elephant and buffalo, frequent the area. Blue wildebeest, steenbok, giraffe, greater kudu, impala, Burchell’s zebra and tsessebe abound, and the region’s flood levels attract the much-sought after water-dwelling antelope species such as sitatunga and red lechwe.
Fondly known as the warm heart of Africa, Malawi is an undiscovered gem full of adventure.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
