New Sanctuary Chief’s Camp Opens in Botswana

Sanctuary Retreats is delighted to announce the opening of the new Sanctuary Chief’s Camp in Botswana.

The camp, which is Sanctuary Retreats’ flagship property, has been re-built to create a new, luxurious contemporary safari camp in one of the best locations in Africa. The spacious new pavilions (which have tripled in size) have incredible views over the surrounding Okavango Delta, which can be enjoyed from each pavilion’s private cocktail pool or outdoor lounge.  Bathrooms – which come complete with floor to ceiling windows and folding glass doors - also have a spacious outdoor shower and an large bath tub.

For the epitome of luxury, the 620m² Ultimate Luxury Suite, can accommodate from two to six guests. It is fully staffed - with a dedicated chef, personal waiter and housekeeper as well as a private vehicle with its own guide.

The main and public areas have been decorated in a luxury naturally style including a new bar and library, the extension of the dining room and the addition of a deck with pizza oven.  An orientation room where guests can learn more about the Delta before going on game drives has been added as well as a fitness centre and ‘Children’s Retreat’.  

A solar farm which is one of the largest in Botswana has been built to help minimise the impact of the camp on the local environment and will supply the majority of energy for the camp.”  The solar farm combines solar panels with battery banks to provide effective solar power. This allows the camp to use direct energy from the sun during the day and store energy for use at night ensuring that guests have use of electricity at all times.
