An exclusive Okavango Delta safari camp famous for its predators
Nestled in the 22.000 ha Chitabe Concession in the southeastern section of the world-famous Okavango Delta is Chitabe by Wilderness. This exclusive camp is renowned for its predator sightings, including African wild dogs, leopards, cheetahs and lions - as well as abundant herbivores. The area has all-year water and borders the famous Moremi Concession and thus, offers year-round game viewing in great numbers spread across diverse terrain that traverses the Kalahari and Okavango Delta. Co-owned by acclaimed photographer Dave Hamman, Chitabe is the perfect place to capture exceptional wildlife photos and rejuvenate in a luxury, thoughtful safari camp. Along with conserving this beautiful concession, Wilderness is on track to being carbon neutral with the use of solar power.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
Twin/ Double Tents
Each of the luxury tents features an open-plan design that flows out onto a grand private veranda with unspoilt views of the African bush. The tents are fitted with either a double or 2 twin beds, an en-suite bathroom and a luxurious outdoor shower.
