Dry Camp

Safari Lifestyles View

One of the real benefits of this camp is its close proximity to Maun. It’s just a short flight that gets you to this dry camp. This is one of Wilderness Safaris’ Classic camps, and does make you feel as though you are there to experience the bush rather than stay in a hotel. It’s a classic tented camp with much attention paid to it with tasteful interiors and good dining. Recently refurbished to a high standard.

We think this is a perfect stop over in combination with different style camps; Chitabe would compliment any safari that included a wet camp as here it is drier and private with a record of very good game sightings.

Wildlife

Chitabe Camp is unique even in the Okavango Delta in that it harbours such a variety of habitats within close proximity, ranging from classic Okavango Delta scenery with Illala palms dotting floodplains to open savannah and acacia woodlands. A finger of perennial swamps inundated by water throughout the year extends into the Chitabe Concession and the area is also dominated by seasonally flooded areas which transform 56% of the concession from dry floodplains into a lush oasis, when the annual flood waters meander through. All this gives rise to a surprising diversity of species, which allows Chitabe Camp to offer guests a wide range of luxury african safaris, game viewing and birding experiences.

The high numbers of impala in the area means that leopard are often seen near Chitabe Camp. Also encountered are buffalo, elephant, lion and occasional sightings of wild dog, the subject of the Botswana Wild Dog Research Project that takes place in the area.

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 Camp often produce families of Ground Hornbill, Greater Honeyguide, Scarlet-chested Sunbird, Red-billed Hornbill, Gabar Goshawk and coveys of Red-billed Francolin.
