Welcome to Chitabe Concession 

• Located close to Maun in the south-eastern Okavango Delta
• Almost 70,000 acres of private traversing and off-roading rights
• Activities focussed solely on game drives, night drives and walking safari
• Expanses of dry land equate to the most consistent big game viewing in Botswana
• Unusual species such as honey badger, aardwolf and bat-eared fox

When it comes to debating the best concessions in the Okavango Delta this slice of paradise must surely make the shortlist. Although it is not the largest area in the Delta, the three camps on the reserve share an area of almost 70,000 acres, so the guest density is still relatively low. With the Santandibe River forming the western boundary and the Gomoti River in the east the concession is surrounded by enough water to sustain a huge amount of life. The core of the area is however dry and this equates to consistently good game viewing throughout the year.

During previous visits we have managed to find lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena in a single day. These sought-after sightings are well supported by large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and zebra as well as a plethora of antelope and plains game species. Other rare and unusual species seem to make regular appearances as well and these may include honey badger, aardwolf and bat-eared fox.

The only downside to this area is the complete lack of water-based safari activities. Because of this we always recommend combining it with other areas such as Jao, Vumbura or Xigera to gain a full understanding of the classic Okavango Delta wetlands. We will end off by saying though, that this place offers without doubt some of the best big game viewing in Botswana and simply must be considered!
