Chitabe Camp was likely our favourite camp on our recent Botswana trip. The game viewing was truly awesome and the camp was great. The rooms are very nice and well kept and the management and staff really create a wonderful atmosphere and culture around the camp. Phinley, our guide was really an amazing guy who shared his experience and knowledge with us along the way and was always enagaged and interested even in the face of my never ending questions. Even though we met several great guides along the way Phinley was the best of the group by a clear margin. Its clear that Trevor runs and well organized ship at this camp and Leanna is kind of the spirit of the place. Thanks to all of the above as well as Tuso and BB for our airstrip transports. The only way we could have had a better time would have been to stay longer!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The archetypal Okavango game-viewing destination. Raised on decks on a beautiful tree island in the south-east of the Okavango, Chitabe Camp looks out across a Delta floodplain that is transformed during winter from dry rushes to lush oasis, one of only a few distinct habitats in this diverse concession. Back in camp, the thatched dining and lounge area provide beautiful views, while each tent exudes its own personality, aided by superb fine art wildlife photographs. A pool provides cool sanctuary in the heat of the day. Highlights: On this classic safari experience, game drives take in the different habitats - the variety of these ensures that there is an equal diversity of wildlife, including big game such as elephant and buffalo, but also a range of plains game species like wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe in numbers that support healthy lion, leopard and hyaena numbers, as well as regular visits by wild dog and cheetah. The camp is composed of 8 tents: spacious en-suite Meru-type tents, individually styled; outdoor shower; double vanity basins. Experiences include: day and night game drives • guided walks (on request). ... more less
