Chitabe Lediba is situated on one of the most beautiful islands in the Delta on the other side from it's sister camp, Chitabe.
Chitabe Lediba has 5 spacious tents built on raised decks with luxurious interiors. They all have an ensuite bathroom as well as an additional outdoor shower and a veranda with views of the floodplains. The main dining room, lounge and bar areas have views out over the flood plains and small waterhole. The camp also has a swimming pool.
Activities include day and night game drives and guided walking safaris. For those guests who really want to experience the bush, the camp can arrange "sleep outs" at one of the two hides on the concession. These hides are raised off the ground and guests sleep under mosquito nets and dine around the fire.
