Chitabe Camp (Okavango Delta)
Chitabe ( pronounced Chitaabee) is bordered by the Moremi
Game Reserve to the north and east and offers guests
"classical Okavango" scenery.
The concessions boundary in the east is the Gomoti
Channel and the Santantadibe River in the west. The area is
made up of a superb variety of habitats which include
permanent waterways and marshlands, dry acacia and mopane
woodland, riverine areas, grasslands and seasonal flood
The camp itself is situated on one of the most beautiful
islands in the Delta. Surrounded by ancient ebony, leadwood
and sausage trees, Chitabe offers 8 luxurious twin bedded
East African styled tents, built on elevated wooden decks
under a lush canopy of indigenous trees.
Each luxury tent has en-suite facilities with hot and
cold running water. A separate thatched dining room, bar and
lounge area, linked by raised walkways, offers superb views
over an open floodplain.
For groups preferring an even smaller camp, Chitabe
Trails Camp accommodates 8 guests in the same luxurious
tents, built on the ground, with en-suite bathrooms, private
dining room, bar, lounge area and pool.
Game Viewing / Activities:
Chitabe offers guests game drives in open 4x4 vehicles
both during the day and night, as well as walks. The camps
owners are well known in the Okavango to Wilderness Safaris'
guests who have stayed at Mombo. They are Dave Hamman and
Helene Heldring, co-authors of the critically acclaimed book
entitled "Running Wild - Dispelling the Myths of the African
Wild Dog Conservation Fund:
A portion of the accommodation charges from each guest
will go towards a Wild Dog Conservation Fund which Chitabe
has established. Dr. J.W. ("Tico") McNutt began the Botswana
Wild Dog Research Project in 1989.
A study area approximately 3,000 sq. km. was established
which includes an average of 160 dogs in 10 - 12 packs.
Chitabe lies within this study area. Botswana's Wild Dog
population represents a significant portion of all Wild Dogs
remaining in Africa.
