safari cost · best season · activities · map of safari
on safari has always been regarded as one of the finest ways
to really get a feel for the African wilderness. The Safari
Company offers a two night walking trail experience in the
heart of the Okavango Delta for those who want to be
closest to nature.
Guests will be accompanied by an armed and licensed "accredited"
walking guide who will take them on the informative and adventurous
walk through the grasslands and woodlands of the Okavango Delta.
The party will sleep out at two of the hides located
in the Chitabe concession. Both hides accommodate guests on
elevated platforms and each guest will sleep in the hide under
a mosquito net, but still being able to gaze up towards the
spectacular African night sky. Long drop toilets and hot bucket
showers will provide the ablution facilities. Dinners at the
hide will be home cooked style meals on the open campfire. Beautifully
appointed dining tables and chairs will help complete the dining
The two hides at Chitabe are located in very different
habitats. One hide is situated on the edge of a floodplain which
often contains water and enables one to see the wet side of
the Okavango and the other hide is within the woodland on the
edge of an extensive pan system, which often sees an abundance
of elephant activity. The walking trail experience allows guests
to get their feet on the ground and really feel, smell and touch
Africa. We will walk for several hours a day, but it is
not a strenuous walk and can be enjoyed by almost all guests.
The absolute silence, except for the nocturnal sounds of the
Okavango's insects and wildlife which one can experience by
sleeping "out in the bush" is a magical one that all
guests will mark as one of the highlights of their African safari.
Most guests spend the first and/or their last night at
Chitabe Camp or Chitabe Trails Camp.
Maximum of 6 guests (unless private group booking for
maximum 8 guests)

Africa. October can be relatively warm as it is the start of
summer. As the safari is conducted on foot, the wildlife will
always be good as the noise and distractions are kept to a minimum.
The birdlife are excellent in September and October as the migratory
birds return from their northern homes to breed in the mild
climates of southern Africa.
