Slaty Egret Safari

Two luxurious, intimate camps provide a highly personalised exploration of the Chitabe concession and private Vumbura reserve within the Okavango Delta. A range of water and land activities allows for stunning sightings.

Slaty Egret Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Slaty Egret Safari. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Maun Airport

Chitabe Camp
Days 1-3

Chitabe Camp

2 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesOkavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

Overlooking a floodplain within the Chitabe concession, in the southern part of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the established Chitabe Camp has an impressive track record for game viewing. The concession, or private reserve, is bordered on three sides by the Moremi Game Reserve and lies in one of the Delta’s drier areas. Unlike areas further north in the Delta, it is largely forested, with shady, wooded glades but few open plains.

"Chitabe Camp is a beautiful location in an area with an amazing wildlife"

Chitabe Camp has historically been known for superb game viewing and its resident population of wild dog. The standard of guiding is very high, and the team is very enthusiastic about the area's wildlife. This, together with very comfortable accommodation, makes Chitabe a popular choice for visitors to the Okavango – so you're likely to need to book well in advance.

Little Vumbura

2 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesOkavango Delta Safari Reserves, Botswana

Little it may be, but this intimate lodge deep in the Okavango still packs quite a punch. From its remote island hideaway, Little Vumbura looks out across the private Vumbura Reserve. With seasonal floodplains criss-crossed by permanent channels, and drier areas punctuated by tracts of woodland, this is an exceptionally varied area.

Little it may be, but this intimate lodge deep in the Okavango still packs quite a punch. From its remote island hideaway, Little Vumbura looks out across the private Vumbura Reserve. With seasonal floodplains criss-crossed by permanent channels, and drier areas punctuated by tracts of woodland, this is an exceptionally varied area.

Key to its appeal is that diversity, which attracts a phenomenal range of wildlife – from big cats and wild dog to elephant and vast herds of buffalo.

It also opens the door for land and water activities, be it a gentle paddle in a mokoro or a leisurely motorboat trip, a guided walk or a full-on 4WD game drive. And if that’s not enough, consider fishing, or even a scenic flight.

Back at camp, lofty roofs rising up from tented structures are redolent of a circus big top – while enhancing the feeling of light and space. Brilliant blue décor defines the lounge – as well as the ceramic basins in each smart but comfortable chalet.

"The setting and scenery at this camp was outstanding. "

Rouse yourself from your private deck, help yourself to a drink and cool off in the plunge pool – or head for the library, where a wooden chair swing invites an afternoon of pure escapism. If escape were needed, that is. See our full report on Little Vumbura
