chitabe camp

South-eastern of the Okavango Delta

Chitabe Camp borders the Moremi Game Reserve in an area containing a fascinating combination of open floodplains, wooded islands and a perennial delta hosting a wide variety of wildlife. Chitabe Camp has been operational since 1997 and has developed an outstanding reputation for loyal, dedicated staff and superb guiding. Although located in the Delta, Chitabe is a land-based camp renowned for its wild dog population.

Chitabe Camp has 8 traditional, stylish "meru" style tented rooms. All rooms are built on raised wooden decks linked by walkways to the main areas. The en suite bathrooms have additional outdoor showers, and each room has a private viewing deck overlooking the floodplains.

The beautifully designed, spacious, thatched main area of Chitabe Camp is accessed by a wooden walkway which leads to the lounge area. The cleverly designed bar, hewn from a single trunk of a sausage tree, is fully stocked with a wide variety of drinks, while in the centre, large steps lead down to a round boma with a fire pit. The small library boasts comfortable and stylish sofas and a great view over the plains. Brunches and dinners are served in the large, thatched, open-sided dining room with views over the surrounding plains, and a secluded hide in front of the camp offers guests another relaxing spot to view the wildlife. Surrounded by sun loungers and naturally shaded by the enormous trees above, the swimming pool is a great place to cool off in the heat of the day.


The Chitabe Concession supports a range of animals and birds, with buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and wild dogs just some of the highlights. The camp's owners have recorded the wild dogs in the area in their excellent coffee-table book, 'Running Wild'. Chitabe Camp lies within the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project's research area, which has up to 160 dogs in packs of 10 to 12, so guests have an excellent chance to see these fascinating animals. Game activities concentrate on day and night 4x4 game drives, with seasonal walking safaris led by experienced guides. The walking experience allows guests to really feel, smell and touch Africa. In addition, Chitabe has two elevated hides in the reserve, one within walking distance from the camp, where guests can spend a night enjoying a dazzling view of the spectacular African night sky.
