Situated on a striking island in a private concession, Chitabe Camp can be found in an area of the Okavango Delta which is unique because of its wide range of habitats in close proximity. Here, you will find landscapes ranging from classic Delta scenery such as floodplains, waterways and marshlands to open savannah, dry acacia and mopane woodland, riverine forest and open grasslands, which houses a multitude of diverse bird and animal species.
Chitabe Camp, now 100% solar-powered, has eight spacious Meru-style tents, built on wooden decks and scattered amongst Okavango trees. Each features twin beds and en-suite facilities complete with an indoor and outdoor shower. The interior of the tents are comfortable with small personal touches, but it is the exclusivity of the Camps location which makes it truly luxurious. The communal area features a thatched dining area, lounge and pub all built on raised decks with spectacular views over the Okavango Delta floodplain. There is also a pool where guests can cool off in the hot summer months. This Botswana wilderness safari location offers an array of game spotting opportunities such as day and night game drives in open 4×4 vehicles, or early morning nature walks through the rich surrounding habitats where diverse birds can be seen. Two elevated hides in the reserve (one in proximity of the camp) provide the perfect perch from where to spot wildlife, and guests can even spend a night at the hide, under the stars in complete safety and comfort.
The multiplicity of the area surrounding Chitabe Camp means an abundance of wildlife – guests are able to spot buffalo, lion, impala, leopard, elephant, cheetah, zebra, giraffe and even the occasional pack of wild dogs with ease. On night drives, nocturnal mammals such as porcupine, civet, genet and aardwolf can also be seen. This is a bird-lovers paradise, where raptors such as the Hooded Vulture and the African Hawk Eagle, as well as the Scarlet-chested Sunbird, Ground and Red-billed Hornbills, Greater Honeyguise and Red-billed Francolin can be spotted in the surrounding grasslands.
Due to its superb location within such a diverse variety of habitats, this Botswana Safari location offers guests the unique opportunity of viewing game all year-round and a wide range of luxury Safaris, game viewing and birding experiences are on offer. Chitabe Camp will leave you in awe of the Delta’s abundant and diverse wildlife.
