Chitabe Camp Okavango Delta, Botswana

Cheetah tending their young. Packs of yelping wild dogs. Huge herds of elephants and zebra. Great flocks of fishing pelicans. Just some of the visitors to Chitabe Camp.

The animal visitors to Chitabe Camp far outnumber the humans. At the heart of the Chitabe Concession, this camp is perfectly placed within over 28,000 hectares of untouched Okavango Delta wilderness – one of the world’s most acclaimed natural areas, with a diversity of habitats attracting a wide range of different creatures.

So, if you make Chitabe part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Botswana, you’ll have a virtually unrivalled opportunity to fill your camera’s memory (as well as your own) with fantastic images of giraffe, buffalo, impala, elephant, lion, spotted hyenas, cheetah and wild dogs. You’ll also have great memories of stalking big game on foot, driving into the night to watch civet, owls and bushbabies and marvelling at the antics of African hawk-eagles, hornbills, sunbirds and goshawks…
