The Chitabe Concession is 28,000 hectares of pristine Okavango wilderness. It borders the well known Moremi Game Reserve and is nestled between two main river systems, the Gomoti to east and the Santantadibe to the west. What makes Chitabe unique to some of the other areas in the Okavango Delta is that it contains such a variety of habitats within close proximity.
A finger of perennial swamps extends into the Chitabe reserve, which is inundated by water throughout the year. The area is also dominated by seasonally flooded areas which transform 56% of the concession from dry floodplains into a lush oasis, when the annual flood waters meander through. This variety of habitat, which ranges from the classic Okavango scenery with Iillala palms dotting the landscape, to open savannahs and acacia woodlands, gives rise to a surprising diversity of species, which allows Chitabe to offer guests a wide variety of game viewing and birding experiences
Chitabe is well known for its predator concentrations of cheetah, lion, leopard and wild dog and because the camp offers night-drives, seeing the elusive nocturnal animals such as aardvark and pangolin is a treat.
Accommodation consists of five spacious and luxuriously appointed East African style tents that have en-suite facilities with flush toilets, a shower and basin with hot and cold running water. Each room also has an outdoor shower, which overlooks the floodplain. The room interiors are of the same standard as its sister camp, Chitabe.
There is a dining area, lounge and pool. The camp overlooks a waterhole, where elephant and plains game often come down to drink during the day. Activities consist of game walks and both day and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles accompanied by an experienced guide.
At Chitabe, guests are encouraged to walk. Well trained and accredited guides taek the walks and guests get a real feel for Africa. Chitabe also has two elevated hides located in the reserve, where guests can experience a "sleep-out" under the stars in full comfort and safety.
