Why we like it
- Chitabe Camp is located in a private concession in the south east of the Okavango Delta
- Eight individually designed spacious Meru style tented rooms are all en-suite with an indoor and outdoor shower
- Activities include day and night game drives, walking safaris and excellent bird watching opportunities
- Chitabe Camp is in a productive game viewing area due to many habitats surrounding the camp
The night drives at Chitabe Camp are not to be missed an incredible experience to possibly see lions start their hunt and the other nocturnal species come to life.
You made sure that the person picking up my internet enquiry was knowledgeable, interested, had an engaging telephone and email manner, and was able to provide a one-stop point of reference, from our first telephone conversation through to arranging the deposit. The service delivery Chris Hamlin provided was second to none - really impressive.

Leopards are often seen near Chitabe Camp due to the high numbers of impala in the vicinity. Also encountered are buffalo, elephant, lion and occasional sightings of wild dog, the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project is based from Chitabe. Night drives also provide opportunities for guests to see nocturnal mammals such as civet, serval, genet, porcupine and aardwolf.
