Location:

Chitabe ( pronounced Chitaabee) is bordered by the Moremi Game Reserve to the north and east and offers guests "classical Okavango" scenery.

The concessions boundary in the east is the Gomoti Channel and the Santantadibe River in the west. The area is made up of a superb variety of habitats which include permanent waterways and marshlands, dry acacia and mopane woodland, riverine areas, grasslands and seasonal flood plains.

Accommodation:

The camp itself is situated on one of the most beautiful islands in the Delta. Surrounded by ancient ebony, leadwood and sausage trees, Chitabe offers 8 luxurious twin bedded East African styled tents, built on elevated wooden decks under a lush canopy of indigenous trees.

Each luxury tent has en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water. A separate thatched dining room, bar and lounge area, linked by raised walkways, offers superb views over an open floodplain.

For groups preferring an even smaller camp, Chitabe Trails Camp accommodates 8 guests in the same luxurious tents, built on the ground, with en-suite bathrooms, private dining room, bar, lounge area and pool.

Game Viewing / Activities:

Chitabe offers guests game drives in open 4x4 vehicles both during the day and night, as well as walks. The camps owners are well known in the Okavango to Wilderness Safaris' guests who have stayed at Mombo. They are Dave Hamman and Helene Heldring, co-authors of the critically acclaimed book entitled "Running Wild - Dispelling the Myths of the African Wild Dog."

Wild Dog Conservation Fund:

A portion of the accommodation charges from each guest will go towards a Wild Dog Conservation Fund which Chitabe has established. Dr. J.W. ("Tico") McNutt began the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project in 1989.

A study area approximately 3,000 sq. km. was established which includes an average of 160 dogs in 10 - 12 packs. Chitabe lies within this study area. Botswana's Wild Dog population represents a significant portion of all Wild Dogs remaining in Africa.
