Is the Wilderness Chitabe Lediba for Me?
On the same island as its sister camp (Wilderness Chitabe), Wilderness Chitabe Lediba is a more intimate destination and is ideally suited to small groups and families. The surrounding mix of savannah, woodlands and palm-dotted floodplains, that characterise this corner of the Delta, support a diversity of species year round. Game drives take in an abundant array of herbivores: giraffes, buffalos, red lechwe, tsessebe, impala and elephants, which in turn attracts the larger predators: lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, cheetahs, and African wild dogs.
Of the five meru-style guest tents, each decorated in a distinctive and appealing style, two are specifically designed for families having adjoining bedrooms and a shared en-suite bathroom. The dining area, lounge and pool have a glorious vantage over the small lediba (a lagoon within a channel) after which the camp is named and lend themselves to recounting exciting safari tales.
INSIDER’S TIP: Scan the bushveld during your evening drive for nocturnal mammals such as civets, genets, bushbabies, owls and leopards.
