Chiefs Camp review

Our feedback to Chief's was that it has some very good things going for it but also some poor points.

The highlights were seeing a leopard very close to, the mokoro ride and the elephant rubbing up against the tent.

The low points were not being collected from our room for breakfast (the excuse being the guide didn't think we were awake), not being offered a cooked breakfast or tea or coffee, being delayed by another person who wanted to film the sunrise and no-one answering the radio when assistance was needed in relation to the elephant.

In hindsight we wondered whether our departure for the morning drive was being deliberately delayed to enable the woman employed by Amex to make a video of the safari in Botswana to finish her filming of the sunrise. If this is the case, it is a good example of poor customer service. Trouble is it tainted our view of not only the camp but also the guide.

Great comfort and super game viewing.

The hotel aspects of this camp were higher that either of the Wilderness camps. Food was more sophisticated. However, I felt the guiding was not as good.

The guide, whilst helpful, perhaps lacked the enthusiasm of the Wilderness guides. We appeared to be re-visiting a highlight time and time again. He was not forthcoming with information, yet when asked questions, one always got a reasonable response. I felt, perhaps, he was just a little lazy! The animal wild life in this camp was the most plentiful of any of the camps visited.
