Chitabe Camp in Botswana.
The Okavango Delta is the name given to the abundant, lush wetland produced by the seasonal floods cascading from the Angolan highlands into the Kalahari Desert creating an idyll of exceptional flora and fauna a paradise in which to enjoy a Botswana safari.
The flooding peaks between the months of June and August when the delta increases to three times the size in the area of its permanent state. As a result, the many varied habitats created - woodland, riverine forest in addition to the waterways - are a magnet for the rich diversity of wildlife and birds.
Luxurious Chitabe Camp is situated on an island within a private concession in the Delta, just a short twenty minute light aircraft transfer from Maun, which itself is served by daily flights from Johannesburg. A slightly longer journey of approximately one hour twenty minutes can bring guests to the airstrip from Zambia (via Kasane).
For a luxury safari Chitabe is perfect. Built on elevated wooden decks amongst the trees, Chitabe Camp’s eight spacious luxury Meru-style tents (including a honeymoon tent) are well equipped with comfortable beds canopied by acres of white netting. The furnishings are stylishly attractive and the well designed en-suite facilities include both an indoor and outdoor shower. The more adventurous guests can take a unique opportunity to experience sleeping outside under a starry African night sky in complete safety, on one of two elevated platforms located in the reserve.
At the heart of the Camp, also constructed on raised decks, linked to the rooms by elevated walkways, there is a thatched area comprising dining, bar and lounge area comfortably furnished and softly lit, together with a library containing reference books for further information. These central facilities are the ideal relaxed meeting place in which to spend the evening reviewing and contemplating the events of the day over a cool drink and superb meal whilst enjoying the views across the floodplain. Weather permitting, evening meals can be enjoyed outdoors in the warm African night.
In between the game drives and activities there is a plunge pool which enables guests to refresh and relax from the heat of the day.
This luxury safari camp would be an ideal base for a photographic group as the camp can exclusively accommodate 16 guests plus a tour leader and with private use of the game viewing vehicles at your disposal no photographic opportunities will be missed as you will be very much on the group’s timetable.
The camp management adheres to a policy of responsible ecotourism and conservation whilst serving the interests of both the wildlife and wildlife lovers.
To take advantage of this abundance of wildlife – elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, impala, wild dog and the majestic big cats – lion, leopard and cheetah – Chitabe Camp is an ideal base. The camp operates game drives in 4 x 4 vehicles together with nature walks and the opportunity for superb birdwatching. Night game drives deliver an opportunity to experience nocturnal occupants like civet, serval, genet and porcupine. A green oasis in Africa, Chitabe Camp’s luxurious accommodation, excellent service access to the most stunning wildlife will deliver an exceptional African Safari experience.
