Chitabe Camp - Okavango

A luxurious eight-roomed, tented camp built on one of the most beautiful islands alongside the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta

Chitabe is particularly famous for the enormous herds of Buffalo and for sightings of the endangered African painted or wild dog

More about Chitabe camp

Access into the Chitabe area is only by aircraft

Chitabe also has two elevated hides located in the reserve, where guests can experience a "sleep-out" under the stars in full comfort and safety.

One of the biggest assets Chitabe has to offer is it's friendly and outstanding staff. Dave and Helene Hamman were awarded a tender by the Botswana government to build Chitabe camp and Chitabe Lediba, which was completed in July 1997. Hélène oversees the running of the camp
