Chitabe walking Safari  Hide


We will walk for several hours a day, but it is done at a moderate pace and can be enjoyed by most guests, with plenty of time for quality game viewing and birding on foot.

The Trail is completely tailor-made to each group of guests and we can increase or decrease the amount of walking to suit the group.

Nights are spent sleeping out at one of the hides located in the Chitabe concession area.

Both hides accommodate guests on elevated platforms, each person sleeping in the hide under a mosquito net with a brilliant view of the spectacular African night sky.

Chemical toilets and hot bucket showers constitute the ablution facilities.

Simple delicious home-cooked meals on the open campfire are eaten, seated around an elegant dining table set out under the stars – truly a wonderful way to end an active day.

The Walking Trail is tailor-made to suit each group’s abilities and wants and a professional guide informs and leads the group through the different habitats of the Delta.

Nights are spent sleeping out at one of two hides located in different parts of the Chitabe Reserve. One is located at the edge of a floodplain, while the other is set within woodland on the edge of an extensive pan system, boasting abundant elephant activity.

The hides are built on elevated platforms with each person sleeping under a mosquito net with an exceptional view of the spectacular night skies of Africa. Chemical toilets and hot bucket showers are provided.


Chitabe Walking Safari


Simple but delicious meals are prepared on the open campfire.

The two hides at Chitabe are located in very different habitats. One hide is situated on the edge of a floodplain which often contains water and enables one to experience the wet side of the Okavango and listen to its distinctive night sounds.

The other hide is set within the woodland on the edge of an extensive pan system, which generally sees an abundance of elephant activity.

Absolute silence, except for the nocturnal sounds of the Okavango’s insects and wildlife, that one can experience by sleeping “out in the bush” is magical and one that all guests will mark as a highlight of their African safari.

Everyone at Chitabe looks forward to hosting you on this adventurous and unique experience.
