Highlights of Botswana

Chief’s Island

Scroll

Many areas of the Okavango Delta are largely dry including Chief’s Island, arguably the Okavango’s most famous isle. Once the royal hunting ground of Chief Moremi, the traditional leader of the local tribes donated it as an extension to the Moremi Game Reserve, into which it was incorporated in 1976. Chief’s Island is now one of the region’s best locations for spectacular wildlife viewing and hosts three luxury safari camps.

Chief’s Island is the first dry land the flood waters reach in the greater Okavango region. Most of the nutrients carried by the water are deposited here resulting in lush vegetation for rich grazing. These nutritious grass plains support herbivores in large numbers and associated high populations of predators.
