Chitabe has been operational since 1997, has developed an outstanding reputation and has the classic Okavango scenery. Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog are among the major game attractions of the area. You could also see Zebra, Reedbuck, Red Lechwe, Sitatunga and Sable, Roan and Impala. The variety of woodland habitats around Chitabe support good population of Buffalo and Elephant. A secluded hide in front of the camp offers you a relaxing spot to view the wildlife at your leisure. A portion of the accommodation charges from each guest goes towards a wild dog conservation fund which Chitabe has established. Dr Tico McNutt began the wild dog research project in 1989, with a study area of about 3000 square kilometres. About 160 wild dogs in ten to twelve packs inhabit this region. Chitabe is part of this study area.

Chitabe offers eight luxurious, twin~bedded, East African style 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, pub, lounge and pool area is linked by raised walkways. The raised decks offer superb views over the open floodplain in front of the camp.

Additional Information
Chitabe offers you game walks and day and night drives in open 4x4 vehicles, as well as mokoro (dug-out canoe) excursions on the scenic waterways of the Okavango Delta. Combine these activities with the diversity of habitat and Chitabe is the ideal ``all in one camp`` in the Okavango.
