Chitabe Camp

Chitabe’s location is in the south-east of the delta on a beautiful old tree island. The camp is surrounded by a stunning array of habitats, and passionate guides with a wealth of stories and experiences are able to offer guests an unforgettable wildlife experience.

Accommodation is in eight Meru-style guest tents – each elevated on a wooden deck.  Spacious and uniquely styled the tents offer comfort and luxury with both an indoor and an outdoor shower.

Elevated walkways connect the tents to the thatched dining and lounge areas which offer comfortable areas to relax. The raised decks provide the ideal vantage point for gazing out across the floodplain, and a pool provides a chance to cool off from the heat of the day.

Day and night drives and guided walks showcase the varied wildlife and landscapes of the Okavango margins.


HIGHLIGHT: If you are lucky, you will encounter some of the endangered wild dog packs in the area.
