Chitabe Camp is located in a 28,000-hectare photographic reserve built on one of the most beautiful islands in the Okavango Delta, in a private area that is bordered on three sides by the Moremi Game Reserve.


Accommodation at Chitabe Camp consists of eight spacious East African style tents that are built on elevated wooden decks, beneath a lush tree canopy. Each tented room has en-suite facilities with flush toilets and both outdoor and indoor showers. Hot showers are guaranteed anytime of the day or night. Each tent has a nice verandah with superb views of the open savannah in front of the camp. One of the tents is the honeymoon tent.


Chitabe contributes to the Botswana Predator Conservation Project through their Botswana Wild Dog Research Project. Dave and Helene Hamman, the owners of Chitabe and Chitabe Lediba, have dedicated many years to photographing the African wild dog and their efforts, combined with the extensive knowledge of Dr. “Tico” McNutt, culminated in the book, Running Wild: Dispelling the Myths of the African Wild Dog.
