Chitabe Camp plays host to a breathtaking mosaic of open floodplains, waterways, marshlands, dry acacia and mopane woodland, riverine forest and open grasslands. This vegetation provides the perfect home for a diverse wildlife and has become a renowned area for predator sightings.
The 69 000 acre private Chitabe Concession is situated in the south-east of the Okavango Delta and is characterized by its grassy floodplains which separate the channel from acacia and mopane woodland. The western half of the concession has as its boundary the Santantadibe River and here a variety of typical Okavango habitats ensure a year-round variety of game viewing and birding experiences.
The camp boasts eight Meru-style Tents which are built on elevated wooden decks amongst the trees. Each tent has twin beds draped with mosquito netting, an en-suite bathroom with double vanities, both indoor and outdoor showers, pedestal fan, writing desk, sitting area, and deck with loungers. One of the tents has a king-size bed.
The camp facilities include a dining area, bar, lounge area, swimming pool and a raised deck that offers spectacular views across the floodplain.
Game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area from predators to prey. Day and night game drives are conducted in open 4x4 Land Rovers and led by professional guides.
Guided walking safaris afford you the opportunity of seeing animals on foot as well as the smaller wondrous creatures of the African bush. Walking safaris are a great way of also seeing the diverse number of bird species living on the concession. This activity is dependent on the availability of guides.
It is this diversity and a mix of Okavango and Kalahari habitats that makes Chitabe unique and which allows good concentrations of all the larger predators – lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah and wild dog – as well as herbivores like giraffe, buffalo, lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant.
Chitabe Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a luxurious tented safari experience.
