Tripadvisor comments Chief's Camp
The rooms are the best, loved the outdoor shower, views are the best, overlooking game all day long. The game on safaris included all of the big five with ample time to sit and enjoy their every movement. Enjoyed cheetahs, leopards and lions on the hunt. Service is the best, food equally so.easytraveler61 from Mobile, Alabama
