Chitabe Camp: Our View

Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra, Antelope – everywhere! Leopard with cub and fresh kill. Same for Cheetah. Lions mating! 

This is Chitabe Camp.

Chitabe Camp is a luxurious tented camp built on one of the most beautiful islands in the Okavango Delta. The wildlife concentration here is remarkable, including many rare and endangered species. The birdlife is also prolific! African Hawk Eagle, Ground Hornbill, Scarlet Chested Sunbird, Red Billed Hornbill, Gabar Goshawk, and Red billed Francolin are all to be found here, depending on the season.

Cheetah, Wild Dog, Honey Badger, Aardwolf and Bat Eared Fox are among the more unusual and endangered species found in this area.

Chitabe Camp is situated in a private concession in the south east of the Okavango Delta, which borders the Moremi Game Reserve and requires just 20 minutes by charter flight to access from Maun. The Chitabe concession is a combination of open floodplains, wooded islands, and lagoons - which attracts a wide variety of wildlife. Accommodation consists of eight spacious luxury tents built on elevated wooden decks beneath a lush tree canopy. Each tented room has en-suite facilities with flush toilets, and both outdoor and indoor showers. Hot showers are guaranteed any time of day or night!

The thatched dining area, lounge and pub are also raised on decks overlooking the surrounding flood plains. A swimming pool allows guests to cool off from the heat of the day. Activities consist of day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles (including off road driving) accompanied by an experienced guide. Nature walks, tailor made to suit the guests, are also offered.
