WILDERNESS Chitabe is an exclusive tented lodge located in the game-rich Chitabe Concession in the southern Okavango Delta

The Chitabe Concession is superb for big game sightings, including all the major predators. Whilst the area does get partially flooded each year, water activities are not offered so this is a camp very much focused on traditional game drives. Night drives can be productive too. Wilderness Chitabe is extremely comfortable without being opulent. The tents are spacious and overlook an open ‘vlei’ where game is often seen. Set on high platforms, some of the tents almost have a ‘tree-house’ feel.

The hospitality in camp is very personal and the camp has a warm and social atmosphere with extensive central areas. The guiding is excellent too. We think Chitabe is a great option for anyone looking for fantastic big game and a very comfortable experience, without paying for the very top end luxury options. However, the price tag may still put some travellers off, especially in high season from June to October.


Wilderness Chitabe has eight spacious tented rooms catering for up to 16 guests. All the tents are raised on wooden decks and are accessed by raised wooden walkways. They have a framed door leading out to a furnished verandah…
