Wilderness Chitabe, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Wilderness Chitabe is situated on a beautiful old tree-island in a prime, private wilderness locale in the south-east of the Okavango Delta. The famed Moremi Game Reserve lies just across the Gomoti Channel. Thanks to a mosaic of habitats – woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands – surrounding the camp, Wilderness Chitabe is renowned for its wildlife numbers and biodiversity, as well as being a predator hotspot.

Wilderness Chitabe is located in the Chitabe Concession, which covers 22 000-hectares (54 363-acres) of pristine Okavango Delta wilderness. This unique area harbours a massive variety of habitats within close proximity giving rise to a surprising diversity of species. The mix of Okavango and Kalahari makes for an excellent home to an abundant array of herbivores: giraffes, buffalos, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephants, which in turn support the larger predators: lions, leopards, spotted hyaenas, cheetahs, and African wild dogs.

The camp's eight spacious Meru-style tents, with fine-art wildlife photographs, are set on elevated wooden decks under large, shady trees. Each tent has twin beds, en-suite facilities with indoor and outdoor showers. The thatched dining area, bar and lounge spaces are built on elevated decks to provide superb views across the expansive floodplain. A pool in the main area allows you to cool off in the heat of the day.

Game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area, from predators to their prey. Diverse habitats characterised by acacia and mopane woodland in the east, and typical Okavango habitats in the west: palm-dotted floodplains, wooded islands, tranquil waterways and dry woodland – make this a wildlife experience few other locations can match. Key mammal species include giraffes, buffalos, lechwe, tsessebe, elephants, lions, leopards, spotted hyaenas, cheetahs, and African wild dogs.
