This was our 5th safari, so we know good from average, plus we have been to Wilderness camps 10 times, yes including Mombo. This camp is absolutely charming. The staff is outstanding, and our guide was better than any we have had at any camp we have ever been - period. The service was terrific, the accommodations lovely, and the camp itself just perfect. We saw leopard with 2 cubs, cheetah, lions, you name it. And the sunrises and sunsets were spectacular! It is also a bird lovers paradise... My best regards to Jossie, and to the best guide, O.D. To O.D. I say " son of a gun" I miss you! With love from your friends from NYC who were with you the last week in May. We hope to visit again soon....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The archetypal Okavango game-viewing destination. Raised on decks on a beautiful tree island in the south-east of the Okavango, Chitabe Camp looks out across a Delta floodplain that is transformed during winter from dry rushes to lush oasis, one of only a few distinct habitats in this diverse concession. Back in camp, the thatched dining and lounge area provide beautiful views, while each tent exudes its own personality, aided by superb fine art wildlife photographs. A pool provides cool sanctuary in the heat of the day. Highlights: On this classic safari experience, game drives take in the different habitats - the variety of these ensures that there is an equal diversity of wildlife, including big game such as elephant and buffalo, but also a range of plains game species like wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe in numbers that support healthy lion, leopard and hyaena numbers, as well as regular visits by wild dog and cheetah. The camp is composed of 8 tents: spacious en-suite Meru-type tents, individually styled; outdoor shower; double vanity basins. Experiences include: day and night game drives • guided walks (on request). ... more less
