For a mobile tented safari experience with a difference, andBeyond Chobe Under Canvas ticks all the boxes. Experience the luxury of the carefully chosen campsites, set exclusively in the pristine, unspoilt and diverse Botswana wilderness right in the heart of the Chobe National Park.
The allure of Chobe Under Canvas is that guests have the opportunity to experience an authentic safari in non-permanent campsites, which promises close interaction with a variety of wildlife. Located to the north of Botswana and bordering the Chobe River, the Camp is intentionally moved every five to six days to a new private site in order to allow guests to discover different animals in their habitats.
The camps are small and feature only five tents with a maximum allowance of ten guests. Guests are able to relax and let their highly skilled camp hosts pamper them with all the comforts they require, as well as some unexpected luxuries. Welcoming butlers and local chefs serve up delicious Pan African cuisine which can be enjoyed around the camp fire under African stars amongst laughter and tales of wild animals.
The spacious and well-appointed tents of Chobe Under Canvas offer guest’s sumptuous crisp white linen with en-suite facilities, which include novel al fresco bucket showers with hot water delivered on request. Experience the thrill of sleeping right in the midst of the African bush with its nightly sounds audible through the thin canvas walls.
Guest can meet for pre-dinner drinks or dinner in the designated guest areas consisting of comfortable tents. Morning and afternoon game drives accompanied by expert guides are offered in semi-open 4×4 vehicles which provide guests with an uninterrupted vista. The surrounding area is home to the entire Big Five and is renowned for the large herds of elephant and buffalo that roam here as well as two antelope species found nowhere else, the Chobe bushbuck and puku. The combination of dry savannah with permanent swamp and the vast floodplains of the river offer guests the opportunity to observe elephant families, rafts of hippo, herds of buffalo and gigantic Nile crocodiles, as well as lion, spotted hyenas and zebra, sable and lechwe to name but a few.
This is a wildlife enthusiasts dream and a Botswana Safari destination of a lifetime offering guests one of the best wilderness reserves on the African continent with the largest single concentration of elephant. The magic of Chobe Under Canvas lies in appreciating the simple beauty of this pristine wilderness.
