Hi, hoi, hola, hallo

Safari experiences that you will not find with any other travel company. We know Africa best and will get you to the right place & time to enjoy the greatest shows on Earth!

Chitake Springs is a remote area at the base of the Zambezi Escarpment in the southern reaches of Mana Pools National Park – on the Chitake River, a tributary of the Zambezi River.

The spring is a perennial water source in a usually dry riverbed and provides the only water source for concentrations of wildlife. Large herds of buffalo, elephant and other herbivores converge on the water – especially during the late dry season – and predators line the steep river channel banks to ambush their desperate prey as they drink.

Chitake Springs has a small basic campsite with no facilities, and campers must be self-sufficient and comfortable amongst wild animals.
