After dinner, there is a wonderful campfire around where you can sip a coffee or enjoy a nightcap. As you drift off to sleep, you will often hear hippo grazing out of water near your tent. In the warmer months, feel free to take a refreshing swim in the Lebala pool.
Chitabe Lediba is a very comfortable and intimate tented camp in an enormous concession that is bordered on three sides by the Moremi Game Reserve. The camp is located in a diverse area incorporating mopang woodlands, acacia, floodplains, and the perennial delta.

Each room is on a raised deck and has an outdoor shower as well. There is a dining area, lounge, and pub with superb views overlooking the surrounding flood plains and a small pool.
What makes Chitabe Lediba unique to some of the other areas in the Okavango Delta is that it contains such a variety of habitats within close proximity. Elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, reedbuck, buffalo, giraffe, impala, kudu, wild dog packs, and hippo are among the major game attractions hiding amid the unique setting.
Nestled amongst a canopy of trees overlooking a seasonal riverbed, Little Tubu Camp offers an intimate bush experience. Three traditionally styled tents on raised wooden platforms each have a private viewing deck, an outdoor shower, and en-suite bathroom facilities. Elevated walkways link them to the main dining, bar, and pool areas that are designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment and maximize the spectacular views.
There are two platform hides on the Jao Concession, offering incredible close-up viewing or the unique opportunity to sleep out under the stars. During winter, the water levels around Tubu Tree rise and the floodplains become covered with water, which allows for a wide range of water activities, from boating and fishing to mokoro excursions.
