Chitabe Lediba Camp Location

Chitabe Lediba Camp Attractions
Chitabe Lediba is strictly a game viewing camp. No water activities are offered here. We travel out into the field in the morning and afternoon, returning usually after dark where we can often spot the shyer nocturnal animals. The game drive is in the same area as Chitabe`s guests, so the game viewing experience is identical. Wildlife seen here includes Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. Wild Dog are among the major game attractions of the area. Guests should also see Zebra, Reedbuck, Red Lechwe, Impala, and all the plains game. Night drives can be very rewarding, giving rare opportunities to view animals such as Pangolin, Civet Cat, Serval, Porcupine and Aardwolf.
A portion of the accommodation charges from each guest goes towards a wild dog conservation fund which Chitabe has established. Dr Tico McNutt began the wild dog research project in 1989, with a study area of about 3000 square kilometres. About 160 wild dogs in ten to twelve packs inhabit this region. Chitabe is part of this study area.
Chitabe Lediba Camp Facilities
The camp itself is situated on one of the most beautiful islands in the Delta. Surrounded by ancient ebony, leadwood and sausage trees, Chitabe Lediba has four tents in the same luxurious style as those of Chitabe Camp. The main difference between Chitabe Camp and Chitabe Lediba is that the tents at Chitabe Lediba are not raised on wooden decking but are built on the ground. This camp`s roomy tents have bathrooms en suite, as well as an additional outdoor shower. The rooms are spacious with large sliding doors. Safety glass on the front sliding doors will enable guests to view the night skies in winter, without feeling the cold, and the dramatic summer nights without getting wet.
Pathways connect the guest tents with the main area. The dining room, lounge and pub areas are under canvas overlooking the waterway in front of the camp. There is a great new (2011) pool and gazebo too.
