Mango Opinion

In addition to their exciting wildlife drives, Chitabe specializes and promotes walking safaris.  The Chitabe concession is an excellent land based wildlife experience year round. One of the biggest assets Chitabe has to offer is its friendly and outstanding staff.

Chitabe Camp is a luxurious 8-roomed, tented camp built on one of the most beautiful islands amid the Okavango Delta's lily-dotted waterways. The Chitabe area is a combination of sweeping, open floodplains, dense groves of trees and lagoons of deep blue waters, which sets the scene for a wide variety of wildlife.

Each luxurious Meru- style tent is built on elevated wooden decks beneath a lush tree canopy. The spacious tented rooms all have en-suite bathroom facilities with flush toilets and both outdoor and indoor showers. Comfortable beds with crisp linens are set amid African-inspired decor. The thatched main dining area, lounge and pub are also raised on decks overlooking the surrounding flood plains so that guests may marvel at any passing wildlife that may wander by. A pool allows guests to cool off from the heat of a long safari adventure.

Safari activities offered include both day and night wildlife drives in open 4x4 vehicles accompanied by an experienced guide. Nature walks, tailor made to suit the guests' interests and abilities, are also offered. Wildlife viewing is superb year round.  It can include elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs reedbucks, giraffes, impalas, zebras, buffalo, hippos and resident packs of wild dogs. Night drives can be very rewarding, with good sightings of the rarer nocturnal animals.
