Chitabe Camp is widely regarded as one of Okavango’s finest game-viewing camps.

Game viewing here has always been extremely good. Consistently, clients have returned with stories of great sightings, especially of leopard yet also of rare creatures not common to the wetter parts of Okavango. Chitabe can therefore stand on its own as a game-viewing destination.

It is located in the private Chitabe Reserve in south-east Okavango DeltaChitabe Reserve is one of the Delta’s drier areas and is surrounded almost entirely by the game-rich Moremi Game Reserve.

Chitabe Camp is made up of eight spacious Meru-style tents which have been built on elevated wooden decks amongst the trees. Each tent has twin beds, en suite facilities and an indoor and outdoor shower.

The camp is especially well known for its diversity of game, including rare specialities such as aardwolf, caracal and wild dog. Leopard are also very common. Chitabe is a dry camp and so we suggest that it is booked in conjunction with another water-based camp, such as Kwetsani, Jacana, Tubu Tree, Little Vumbura, Kwara or Little Kwara. Some years, Okavango’s flood hits this area, whereas during other years the reserve is completely dry. As a result, Chitabe should never be booked as a classic Okavango water experience.

"Reliably brilliant game year round sees Chitabe as one of the best Okavango camps for game viewing alone. A superb option and a camp that's best booked with a water camp for an all-round Delta experience."
