Conservation & Community
Chitabe Staff – Children in the Wilderness
Each year, Chitabe and Chitabe Lediba bring the children of our staff to the camp for an annual Christmas Party. Two days of activities cover all aspects of conservation and game drives, as well as fun activities. This gives not only a sense of pride to our staff, but also to their children.
Coaching for Conservation
Chitabe contributes annually to the Coaching for Conservation (C4C) programme, an initiative of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust that aims at inspiring children to care about themselves, others and the natural world around them. C4C’s signature Learning from Wildlife Model uses the power of and inherent value of sport, as well as bringing the animals we are trying to protect onto the sports field as virtual coaches and mentors to learn from. By linking conservation to core values through sport, children are able to personally connect with wildlife and wild spaces.

Game drives reveal the rich wildlife of the area from predators to prey. Our open 4×4 vehicles accommodate a maximum of seven guests allowing each a ‘window’ seat

Chitabe Camp Reviews
“We spent an amazing four days at Chitabe. The flight from Maun was short and sweet. Started seeing game on the drive from the airstrip. The welcome to camp was of course melodious. The staff made us feel very much at home from the minute we arrived. The game viewing at Chitabe was quite impressive.” – Matshediso K
“We stayed 3 nights at Chitabe in August 2015. First kudos to Wilderness Safaris. Their camps, air service and staffs are tops and hard to beat. We had last visited the Okavngo Delta in March 1984. The camps have come a long way but the wildlife remains great.” – David T
“Staff was amazing and friendly. Thanks to Gordan for amazing drives and his special Gin & tonics! Tents are sparkling clean and comfortable. Game was plentiful. Food was very good. The manager there was so nice she greeted us every time we came back from drive and shared stories with us every night at dinner.” – buttercap1
