Chitabe Lediba has a perfect location for views over the semi-permanent lagoon and floodplains of the Okavango Delta. The camp is more intimate and thus good for small groups or families with children. The mix of Okavango and Kalahari habitats make the area ideal for diverse wildlife sightings. Birding is also excellent.
The Chitabe concession of 69 000 acres is divided by the Gomoti Channel. This makes the Eastern half to be characterized by grassy floodplains which divide the channel from the Acacia and Mopane woodlands. The Western half of the concession is typical Okavango Delta habitat of clear streams lined with papyrus and palm covered islands.
Most of the larger predators are common and include Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Hyena. Herbivores such as Giraffe, Buffalo, Zebra and Wildebeest inhabit the area. Hippo and Elephant are also common sightings.
Morning and afternoon game drives as well as night drives ensures guests have access to as many sightings as possible. Walking safaris are not conducted from March to June as the vegetation is too thick, walks are subject to the Camp Managers decision. Scenic helicopter flights (additional cost) and excursions to the Tsodilo Hills are also possible.

Two family units have adjoining decks and for younger children the other has an adjoining corridor. Both family units have double en suite bathrooms. Tents are luxurious and wheelchair friendly A private deck with chairs and yoga mat also has views of the lagoon.
