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 predator-rich concession that borders the Moremi Wildlife Reserve; you'll want to take pictures of everything. With just five tents (two of which are suitable for families), Lediba is run as a smaller sister to the neighboring 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 grant you easy access around camp. You'll sleep in a comfortable, East African–style tent with wooden floors, a fine art wildlife print hanging above the bed, oversized armchairs, and both an indoor and outdoor shower. A separate thatch dining room, bar, and lounge area, also linked by wooden walkways, looks out over a floodplain, although there are no real water vistas. The camp has an excellent reputation for predator-sightings with lions, leopards, wild dogs, and cheetahs roaming a variety of habitats, from marshlands and riverine areas to open grasslands and seasonally flooded plains. Although the camp is theoretically situated on an island, the size of the island and the camp’s location means that water activities are not possible.


  • Lediba is great for families
  • excellent reputation for predators
  • unpretentious


  • no water activities
  • not ultraluxurious
  • multiple vehicles can make game-drives busier than elsewhere
