Chobe Under Canvas
Featuring just six superlative en suite safari tents, carefully positioned in exclusive semi-permanent camps (on or near the Chobe River), is the elegant Chobe Under Canvas, situated in the Northern part of the Chobe National Park.
Chobe National Park encompasses 11 700 km2 of wilderness, bordered in the north by the beautiful Chobe River, and buffered on all sides by wildlife management areas and forest reserves allowing for the free movement of game. A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, Chobe National Park is one of the top wilderness reserves in the world and is home to the largest single concentration of elephant. Throughout the year, herds of buffalo and elephant can be seen drinking at the river’s edge with their numbers swelling into hundreds and thousands during the dry season. Two species of region-specific antelope occur here, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck, which cannot be seen in other parts of Botswana except on the Chobe riverfront. Due to the variety of the Chobe vegetation and geological features, this magnificent wildlife sanctuary offers extreme contrasts and a fantastic cross-section of wildlife.
Bookable on a nightly basis, each luxury en suite semi permanent tent boasts a double bed, en suite bathroom, separate w.c. and hot water bucket shower – this is the ultimate in luxury camping.
The guest areas comprise comfortable tents for dining, meeting for a pre-dinner drink, or just for whiling the time away between safaris – complete with private butler service, delicious Pan African meals, and traditional bush dinners served under the stars. Activities include twice-daily game drives in semi-open 4x4 safari vehicles and a tranquil boat cruise on the Chobe River – both with expert &Beyond trained guides.
