There are also healthy populations of the endangered wild dog with this conservations area being one of their last strongholds.
Chief’s Camp is well- equipped, with an extended dining room, the addition of a pizza deck with pizza oven and a new orientation room where guests can learn more about the Delta before going on game drives. Gym facilities and a gym and kids’ playroom are also available. The main area inclusive of the dining facilities, bar, curio shop, library and reception are built into the existing landscape, under a canopy of mature Jackalberry, Sausage and Rain trees. The deck area is split-level and offers expansive views over the scenic floodplains, with the lower level of the deck housing the swimming pool.
