From the minute we were picked up at the dirt airstrip to the time we were hugged as we got on the plane to leave we felt like family at Chitabe Camp. Of the three camps we stayed at it was the most comfortable (each of the other camps had their highlights too). This was my mother and my first safari experience and it was exceptional.
Our guide for our stay was Anthony and we was exceptional. His sense of humor and personality were a great fit for us and the other guests with us. His knowledge and insights made this a wonderful first safari experience!
All the staff at the camp including Dawson, Tiny and Buzz and others whose names I don't remember made our stay better than we could have ever imagined.
The food was great! The animal viewing was wonderful - we had a great time!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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). ... more less
