Chitabe Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Chitabe Camp is a Classic Camp

4Cs Projects at Chitabe Camp

Chitabe Camp, where conservation is vital to the operation, has initiated and funded research and monitoring projects. We have to date completed and funded four annual aerial wildlife surveys, as well as working extensively with wild dog projects.


Botswana Wild Dog Research Project

Ongoing research, as well as addressing the surrounding communities' attitudes towards the African wild dog, has resulted in a gradual increase in awareness of the plight of these Endangered, charismatic predators.

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.

Aerial Survey

Since 2009, Chitabe and Chitabe Lediba have been involved, financially and logistically, in an annual Aerial Survey of the concession. Annual aerial surveys help to establish data on the wildlife populations in an area.

Maun Animal Welfare Society

Maun Animal Welfare Society (MAWS) is a non-profit organisation aiming to improve the lives of domestic animals by providing free or low-cost veterinary services and educational programmes in and around Maun, Botswana. MAWS’ vaccination campaign has helped reduce the spread of diseases such as rabies and canine distemper. Chitabe supports MAWS logistically and financially.
