Chobe Under Canvas

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Chobe Under Canvas is a lovely option for those looking for high end mobile camping.  If under budget constraints, we tend to opt for some less expensive options in Chobe and a fly-in camp in the Okavango Delta.

Set in secluded campsites in the game-rich wilderness of the Chobe National Park, five en-suite safari tents form an intimate cluster of warmth and comfort. Tucked in the shade of a dense forest deep in the pristine African bush, a maximum of ten guests revel in the total isolation of these private wilderness sites. Night time noises drift through canvas walls and well-used animal trails bring unexpected visitors to thrill and delight. 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.

Surrounded by wildlife management areas and reserves that allow game to roam freely, the 4,500 square mile reserve is located in the far north of Botswana, bordering on the Chobe River. Home to the iconic Big Five, Chobe is particularly well known for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as two antelope that cannot be seen anywhere else in Botswana, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck. 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. Activities include twice-daily game drives in semi-open 4x4 safari vehicles and a tranquil boat cruise on the Chobe River - both with expert trained guides.
