Chobe Under Canvas is surrounded by wildlife management areas and reserves that allow game to roam freely, the 11 700 km² reserve is located in the far north of Botswana, bordering on the Chobe River. Home to the entire Big Five, Chobe is particularly well known for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as the two antelope that cannot be encountered anywhere else in Botswana, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck.
Evidence of vast herds of wildlife wandering the African bush exists on the well-used animal trails that meander between the tents.
The camp moves to a different site every five or six days, ensuring that game drives constantly explore fresh areas.
Set in secluded campsites in the game-rich Chobe National Park, five ensuite 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 wildlife sites.
The rustic charm of camping combined with the comfort of full service, a flush toilet and steaming hot bucket shower.
The classic tented rooms are simple and comfortable each with en suite and king size beds and with a view directly in the Chobe bush from the veiled doorways. The main mess tent is, again, simple and offers dining under the stars and tales around the campfire centrally within camp.
Children over the age of 12 are welcome at &Beyond Chobe Under Canvas, although the tents are unsuitable for triple occupation, meaning that younger children are unable to share a room with their parents.
Renowned as one of the top wildlife reserves in the world, morning and afternoon game drives explore the game rich landscape of Chobe National Park. &Beyond’s professionally trained guides will ask you about your favourite wildlife and will do their best to ensure that your preferences are met, whether it is tracking a particular species or spending more time enjoying each sighting and getting to know the habits of the animals. They will also tell you about the vegetation of the region and will explain the behaviour of the animals that you come across. In some cases, the guides will be able to identify individual animals and let you know about their history and habits.
Capture the magnificent wildlife and scenic landscapes of the Chobe National Park on an unforgettable photographic safari. Accompanied by professional photographers, you will set out in a custom-built boat from where you will receive expert tips and recommendations on how to capture the most breathtaking images. Every seat on the boat is fitted with a top-of-the-range camera that is fitted to a customized mount, so you needn’t bring your own equipment.
Boast Cruise on the Chobe River
The best way to end a day of safari here is sipping on a cocktail while watching an African sunset over the still waters of the Chobe River from the comfort of one of our specially designed riverboats. Sundowner cruises are also a great way of seeing buffalo up close as they come out of the shade to graze in the cooler evenings and elephants as they wade in the river. Chobe is renowned for its abundance of dramatic sable and roan antelopes with their impressive horns. Sitatungas - antelope with splayed feet to help them run in swamps - are often seen here, as are the wild dog and lion that prey upon them.Subject to availability
