The archetypal Okavango game-viewing destination. Raised on decks on a beautiful tree island in the south-east of the Okavango, Chitabe Camp looks out across a Delta floodplain that is transformed during winter from dry rushes to lush oasis, one of only a few distinct habitats in this diverse concession. Back in camp, the thatched dining and lounge area provide beautiful views, while each tent exudes its own personality, aided by superb fine art wildlife photographs. A pool provides cool sanctuary in the heat of the day. Highlights: On this classic safari experience, game drives take in the different habitats - the variety of these ensures that there is an equal diversity of wildlife, including big game such as elephant and buffalo, but also a range of plains game species like wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe in numbers that support healthy lion, leopard and hyaena numbers, as well as regular visits by wild dog and cheetah. The camp is composed of 8 tents: spacious en-suite Meru-type tents, individually styled; outdoor shower; double vanity basins. Experiences include: day and night game drives • guided walks (on request).

Botswana safaris don’t get any better! Chitabe has it all - it is the meeting point in the Okavango Delta of several different eco systems that attracts an extraordinary variety of species. We saw everything we wanted to see and more with our exceptional guide Goodman, and,

It has been 30 years since I was in the Delta and how special to be back there. Chitabe ticked every box. The guide (Goodman) was amazing, not only in finding the best game sightings (way off the beaten track) but in his knowledge of the birds (we saw nearly 80 unique birds).

This was our second stay at Chitabe. The main part of the camp has been completely refurbished, and it is very well done. It hasn’t lost its safari camp feel, just a bit updated. The food is excellent, the guides and staff are super friendly. The tents are very comfortable,

Dear celiaatje2, Thank you for the wonderful review, we are glad to see you like the renovations and that this does not detract from the authentic safari feeling. We strongly believe in disconnecting to reconnect and leaving the drill of modern life and WiFi behind while you reconnect with nature. We are thrilled to see that you too enjoyed this element of your stay with us. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

This was my first time in the Delta and definitely not my last one in Chitabe. Me and my wife spent our anniversary here and the staff was so thoughtful to set aside a private table for us on our anniversary night. Our guide, Lesh, was the best guide we have ever had in any
