I have been all over the world and I can say it's a perfect place for wildlife photographers. If you are lloking for fine cousine or nice amenities you may look for premier camps in Botswana but if you want the best game sights possible than choose Chitabe. In short, it four days we have seen wild dogs kill, five leopards, two of them with kills including a mom and son with a killed impala, a pride of lions with puppies, and lots of other staff. From all the camps that we have visited, including the more expensive ones, Chitabe was simply the best when we speak about wildlife. And for me it’s the only criteria in Botswana. I plan to be back to Botswana and though I rarely return to places that I have already visited, I will be back to Chitabe. They also have perfect staff. If you are keen on wildlife photography ask for earlier rides and ask for Ibs. He is a ranger who talks little but exactly knows where to bring you for a great shot.
- 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
