Chitabe & Chitabe Lediba is set deep within the Chitabe Reserve with its numerous shady glades, these two camps are close to each other but each has its own character. Chitabe Main Camp, the larger of the two, has eight tents on wooden decks, all joined by a spider’s web of walkways, and leading to the main lounge and dining area, which also has a plunge pool.
By contrast, Chitabe Lediba (formerly known as Chitabe Trails Camp) is much smaller, with just five tents, again reached by wooden walkways, although these are closer to the ground. It’s an intimate and excellent little camp, a firm favourite of ours.
The area is interesting: a patchwork of mopane woodlands, dotted with acacia and with occasional swathes of riverine forest overlooking watery Delta channels. The wildlife viewing can be exceptional with great sightings of leopard (this is a leopard hotspot!) and also elephant, lion, buffalo and occasional wild dog. At both camps your activities will concentrate on day and night 4X4 game drives in order to find the predators and wild dog, for which this area is renowned.
