Chitabe Lediba Camp in the Chitabe Concession neighbors the Moremi Game Reserve in the south-east of the Okavango Delta, Botswana. The Concession consists of 28,000 hectares covering habitats ranging from savannah to tree-filled islands and floodplains.
All five spacious Meru-style tents are built on raised decks and feature en-suite bathrooms with outdoor showers and panoramic views of the Okavango Delta. Similarly, the dining area, lounge and pool provide a glorious vantage point over the small lediba (remnant lagoon that has become a waterhole) after which the camp is named. Guests can view the array of wildlife which comes to drink by day from the comfort of the camp itself.
Activities center on both morning and afternoon game drives to explore the breathtaking variety of landscapes, habitats and wildlife which border the Chitabe Concession. Afternoon drives usually return after dark in the hopes of spotting the shyer nocturnal animals of the Okavango Delta such as genet, civet, serval, porcupine and, on the rare occasion, the aardwolf. The camp also has two elevated platforms which can be utilized either for a ‘sleep out’ or as a game viewing platform by day. Wildlife seen here includes elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and cheetah; as well as zebra, tsessebe, giraffe, kudu and impala. On occasion guests are also privileged enough to see Wild Dog.
