Chitabe rests on a beautiful tree island in the South East of the Okavango Delta. The camp has been built on raised wooden decks to afford endless views over the plains and the game of this habitat. Thanks to the diversity of the habitats found at Chitabe there is an equal diversity of game to be found on the morning and afternoon game drives as well as the walking safaris that are offered.
The area has very good populations of Lion, Leopard, Hyena, Cheetah and Wild Dogs. The 69 000 acre concession is separated from the Moremi Game Reserve by the Gomoti Channel. The Western area is characterized by palm trees, forested islands and tranquil waterways lined with papyrus fronds. Birding and game viewing are particularly good in this concession due to the diverse habitats that can be explored.
Both predator and antelope populations are very high in this area.
Chitabe has just eight spacious tents giving a secluded and intimate sensation to this camp. Tents are well appointed with comfortable furnishings and a gym and lap pool are also available. Double sliding doors open to a private deck and the camp is disabled friendly.
The camp is completely solar powered and rests on a light environmental footprint with no cement having been used during construction. Chitabe is an award winning camp for the work it has done for the local communities and its staff reflect true hospitality professionalism.
Children 6 years and older are welcome in camp. Children 6 – 12 must book a private vehicle at additional cost and children 6 – 16 must share a room with an adult. Minimum age for waling is 13 years of age.
