Okavango Delta, Botswana

Featured Safari Destination by GURU



Chitabe Lediba, is located on the same island as its sister camp, Chitabe in the Chitabe Concession. Neighbours to the Moremi Game Reserve in the south-eastern part of the Okavango Delta, it offers a wide range of habitats making for an equally diverse wildlife haven.

Views over the waterhole give ample opportunities to watch the daily animal traffic. Beyond the camp, Okavango and Kalahari landscapes meet to form rich habitats, with some of the Okavango Delta's best wildlife viewing and predatory action.

Although smaller than its sister camp, Chitabe Lediba offers equal levels of service and comfort; and is ideal for small groups or families.

The main area and pool enjoy glorious views over the surrounding floodplains and small lediba (remnant lagoon waterhole), where a variety of game comes to drink during the day. The area, with outstanding wildlife, is explored on guided walks or day and night game drives.

Family units have adjoining bedrooms and a shared en-suite bathroom. All five spacious Meru-style tents are built on raised decks, from which outdoor showers offer expansive views to ensure one of the many predators of the area doesn't slip by unnoticed. The dining area, lounge and pool have a glorious vantage over the small lediba (a remnant lagoon that has become a waterhole) after which the camp is named and where wild animals and birds frequently come to drink.

Chitabe Lediba covers 22 000 hectares of pristine Okavango Delta wilderness. This unique area harbours a massive variety of habitats within close proximity giving rise to a surprising diversity of species. The mix of Okavango and Kalahari makes for an excellent home for an abundant array of herbivores: giraffe, buffalo, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephant, which in turn support the larger predators: lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah and wild dog.

Chitabe Lediba is truly a wildlife destination that can satisfy the needs of even the most demanding wildlife enthusiast.
