Chitabe Camp is situated on a beautiful island within the private Chitabe Reserve in the southern part the Okavango Delta. Chitabe Reserve is bordered on three sides by the famous Moremi Game Reserve and combines open floodplains with wooded islands and perennial Delta.
The area supports a variety of wildlife including buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, reedbuck and impala, and it’s renowned for its epic sightings of endangered African wild dog. The reserve is also an excellent bird-watching destination and various species of birdlife can be spotted throughout the year, depending on water levels and season.
Located in the southern Okavango, Chitabe Camp receives very little water therefore activities are strictly land based. You can enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in open-sided safari vehicles to spot the rich wildlife of the Chitabe area, plus there’s also the option of sunset drives for a chance to see nocturnal creatures.
Walking safaris with skilled guides are also possible and offer an opportunity to spot big game on foot, as well as observing the small animals that you might miss when travelling by vehicle.
After an exciting day of safari activities you can relax at this luxurious camp. You may wish to take a refreshing dip in the plunge pool or enjoy a G&T on the verandah of your stylish Meru style tent and take in the magnificent views over the Okavango Delta's floodplains.
Wayfairer Tip: Combine Chitabe Camp with a ‘water camp’ such as Jacada for the ultimate Okavango experience.
