Your stay also benefits our local employees with life-enriching school education donations and generous profit-shares.






Chitabe experiences

Feel the steady beat of adrenaline as you watch a lioness stalking, almost invisible in the tawny winter grass. Listen to the greeting growls and squeals of wild dogs. Walk seasonally to view life along and in the Gomoti Channel. As you slip off to dreamland, spy an elephant feeding outside your window in the moonlight. This is Chitabe.


Explore camps in the Okavango Delta

Chitabe covers 22,000 hectares of pristine Okavango Delta wilderness, home to some of the best wildlife sightings on Earth. Here Botswana’s seasonal Gomoti River brings an ebb and flow of ever-changing wildlife to the camp and the floodplains that surround it.
