Fodor's Expert Review Chitabe Camp and Chitabe Lediba

Okavango Delta, North West, Botswana

Be sure to have your camera at the ready in this exclusive concession that borders the Moremi Wildlife Reserve; you'll want to take pictures of everything. With just four tents, Lediba is run as a smaller sister to the eight-room Chitabe Camp but is otherwise similar in all aspects. Spacious, comfortable tents on stilts are connected by raised wooden walkways that put you safely above the ground and give you a Tarzan's-eye view of the surrounding bush. You'll sleep in a luxurious, East African–style tent with wooden floors, a fine art wildlife print hanging above two comfortable single beds, oversize armchairs and a private shower. A separate thatch dining room, bar, and lounge area, also linked by wooden walkways, looks out over a floodplain. Unfortunately, there are no vistas of water. The camp lies within the known territories of several packs of wild dogs, so you have a good chance of seeing these fascinating "painted wolves." The area has a variety of habitats, from marshlands and riverine areas to open grasslands and seasonally flooded plains. Although it's on one of the most beautiful islands in the delta, it's not really a water camp because it doesn't offer water activities.
