Chitabe Camp is based on a private concession close to Chief’s Island, a sensational wildlife area with all the animals of the Moremi but none of the limitations imposed within the protected reserve. This means that off road and night driving are permitted, allowing visitors close access to a diverse range of daytime and nocturnal animals. Activities mainly involve game drives, although walking safaris are possible at certain times of year and there are two excellent wildlife hides. In this concession you will see huge herds of plains game and abundant predators, including regular wild dog sightings.
While extremely comfortable, Chitabe is a camp with a serious focus on prolific big game sightings. So the eight safari tents are spacious and stylish but unfussy, raised on wooden decks with private verandas overlooking the surrounding floodplains. Wooden walkways connect the rooms with the elevated main thatched communal area, where there is a bar, library and curio shop. There is a small plunge pool and a traditional boma area for dining under the stars when weather permits, safe and secure amidst teeming populations of classic safari wildlife.
