The Reserve: NG 31 - Chitabe Concession
The Chitabe Concession is 28,000 hectares of pristine Okavango wilderness. It borders the well known Moremi Game Reserve and is nestled between two main river systems, the Gomoti to east and the Santantadibe to the west. What makes Chitabe unique to some of the other areas in the Okavango Delta is that it contains such a variety of habitats within close proximity. A finger of perennial swamps extends into the Chitabe reserve, which is inundated by water throughout the year.
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. This variety of habitat, which ranges from the classic Okavango scenery with Illala Palms dotting the landscape, to open savannahs and acacia woodlands, gives rise to a surprising diversity of species, which allows Chitabe to offer guests a wide variety of game viewing and birding experiences Chitabe is well known for its predator concentrations of cheetah, lion, leopard and wild dog and because we can offer night-drives, seeing the elusive nocturnal animals such as aardvark and pangolin is a treat.
The Chitabe camps can offer guests not only a wonderful game viewing experience in well-equipped game drive vehicles, but we encourage walking as well. Our guides are all trained and accredited to take walks and our guests can put their feet on the ground and get a real feel for Africa. Chitabe also has two elevated hides located in the reserve, where guests can experience a "sleep-out" under the stars in full comfort and safety.
