Chitabe Lediba

Chitabe Lediba Camp is located in the Chitabe Concession, which covers 28,000 hectares of pristine Okavango Delta wilderness.

It borders the well-known Moremi Game Reserve and is nestled between two main river systems, the Gomoti to the east and the Santantadibe to the west.

Chitabe Lediba Camp is unique even in the Okavango Delta in that it harbours such a variety of habitats in close proximity.  This ranges from classic Okavango Delta scenery with Ilala palms dotted floodplains, to open savannah and acacia woodlands.

Chitabe Lediba is located on the other side of the same island as its sister, Chitabe Camp. A smaller camp, accommodation consists of five canvas tented style rooms, built on raised decks with luxurious interiors and in tasteful style, complete with en-suite bathrooms, including double vanity basins, indoor and outdoor shower with spectacular views.

There are two family rooms, one (for older children) with an adjoining front deck and the other (for youngsters) with an adjoining corridor; each room however has its own en-suite facilities. A dining area, lounge and pool have glorious views over the surrounding floodplains and the small lediba (remnant lagoon waterhole), where a variety of game comes to drink during the day.

Safari Experience

Wildlife viewing is the major activity at this camp, whether on walks (depending on qualified guide availability), or day and night game drives in open 4×4 Land Rovers accompanied by an experienced guide.

Chitabe Lediba sports that classic Okavango Delta scenery, from palm-dotted floodplains to open savannah and woodlands.

This mix of Okavango (water) and Kalahari (land) makes for an excellent home to an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn support the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah and the rare and charismatic wild dog.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Chitabe Lediba Camp is unique even in the Okavango Delta in that it harbours such a variety of habitats in close proximity, ranging from classic Okavango Delta scenery with Illala palms dotting floodplains to open savannah and acacia woodlands.

The birdlife is excellent and varies throughout the year, depending on water levels and season.

Raptors are abundant here: including the African Hawk Eagle and the Hooded Vulture often nests on the island.

Game drives in the palm-filled landscape of Chitabe Lediba Camp often produce families of Ground Hornbill, Greater Honeyguide, Scarlet-chested Sunbird, Red-billed Hornbill, Gabar Goshawk and coveys of Red-billed Francolin.
