Chitabe Camp is situated within a private concession area on an island in the southeast of the Okavango Delta. Playing host to a breathtaking mosaic of wooded, wetland and grassland habitats, the area is famed for its incredible numbers and diversity of wildlife, in particular predators.
The camp boasts eight spacious Meru-style tents that are raised on wooden decks under large, shady trees. These tents are fitted with twin beds, en-suite facilities, indoor and outdoor showers. The thatched dining area, bar and lounge are built on raised decks providing superb views across the floodplain and there is a pool that allows guests to cool off in the heat of the day.
Chitabe has a great deal of commitment to the Wilderness Purpose which includes providing financial and logistical support for a variety of projects ranging from research and monitoring programmes to education and social upliftment projects.
The Chitabe Concession is 28,000 hectares of pristine Okavango wilderness. It borders the well-known Moremi Game Reserve and is nestled between two main river systems, the Gomoti to the east and the Santantadibe to the west. What makes Chitabe unique to some of the other areas in the Okavango Delta is that it contains such a variety of habitats within close proximity. A finger of perennial swamps extends into the Chitabe reserve, which is inundated by water throughout the year. The area is also dominated by seasonally flooded areas which transform 56% of the concession from dry floodplains into a lush oasis when the annual floodwaters meander through. This variety of habitat, which ranges from the classic Okavango scenery with Ilala Palms dotting the landscape, to open savannahs and acacia woodlands, gives rise to a surprising diversity of species, which allows Chitabe to offer guests a wide variety of game viewing and birding experiences.
Chitabe is well known for its predator concentrations of cheetah, lion, leopard and wild dog and because we can offer night-drives, seeing the elusive nocturnal animals such as aardvark and pangolin is a treat.
About The Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is a vast inland river delta in northern Botswana. It's known for its sprawling grassy plains, which flood seasonally, becoming a lush animal habitat. The Moremi Game Reserve occupies the east and central areas of the region. Here, dugout canoes are used to navigate past hippos, elephants and crocodiles. On dry land, wildlife includes lions, leopards, giraffes and rhinos.
