CHITABE LEDIBA CAMP
Chitabe Lediba Camp is an intimate, private camp, located on the same island as its larger sister, Chitabe Camp. Being in the same area means it takes advantage of the diverse array of habitats that are all in close proximity - and the prolific wildlife that lives there.
Neighbouring the Moremi Game Reserve in the south-east of the Okavango Delta, the Chitabe Concession is 28 000 hectares of a multiplicity of habitats, from savannah to tree-filled islands and floodplains. All this makes for amazing wildlife sightings.
Chitabe Lediba Camp is small, intimate - just right as a private camp for small groups or families; its two family units have adjoining bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. All five spacious Meru-style tents are built on raised decks. En-suite bathrooms complement the outdoor shower 'with a view'.
A dining area, lounge and pool have glorious views over the surrounding floodplains and a small lediba (remnant lagoon that has become a waterhole), after which the camp is named, where game comes to drink during the day.
Morning and afternoon game drives explore the area and its denizens, the evening drive usually returning after dark so as to get a chance at spotting the shyer nocturnal animals such as genet, civet, serval, porcupine and possibly aardwolf.
Game drives take place in the same area as Chitabe's guests, so the viewing experience is identical. Wildlife seen here includes elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and cheetah. Wild dog are also sometimes found in the area. Guests should also see zebra, tsessebe, giraffe, kudu and impala.
Two hides can be used as a 'sleep out' experience as well as a game viewing platform during the day.
