We stayed in November 2013 for 3 nights. The room was beautiful with a wonderful view, deck, and outdoor shower. There is an indoor shower also.
There were only ever about 5-6 guests there total during our stay. Meal times were very intimate with some of the staff joining us. We had many laughs and pleasant meals.
The game drives (with Gordon) were great. He was disappointed that we hadn't seen a leopard yet on our safari, so on the last day when another guide had a sighting, he RACED to make sure we saw it before our flight left for the next camp.
We have high praise for all of the Wilderness Lodges we have stayed at over the years and for Wilderness Air. We look forward to doing a third safari with them in 2015.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Intimate Chitabe Lediba is a perfect game viewing base for families or small groups. A lediba is a lagoon that has become a waterhole, where a variety of wildlife comes to drink. Chitabe Lediba's dining area, lounge, and pool all overlook just such a vista. The sister camp of Chitabe, it lies on the other side of the same tree island and echoes many of its sibling's qualities. The same well-appointed canvas tents are raised on decks with uniquely styled interiors, but the smaller nature of the camp offers a more intimate experience, ideal for small groups or families. Highlights: Chitabe Lediba sports that classic Okavango Delta scenery, from palm-dotted floodplains to open savannah and woodlands. This mix of Okavango (water) and Kalahari (land) makes for an excellent home to an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn support the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah and the rare and charismatic wild dog. The Camp is composed of 4 Tents (including 2 Family Tents): Spacious en-suite Meru-type tents, individually styled; outdoor shower with a view; family units withadjoining en-suite bedrooms. Experiences Include: Day and night game drives and Guided walks (on request) ... more less
