Chobe Under Canvas

Explore Botswana

The comfortable mobile tents of Chobe under Canvas offer guests the chance to get as close as possible to Chobe's vast wildlife herds by relocating every five or six days to carefully selected positions. Home to a variety of big game, 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 Chobe bushbuck.

Five well-appointed walk in tents accommodating a maximum of ten guests are furnished with comfortable beds, a hanging rail, canvas wardrobe and luggage chest. The en-suite bathroom is complete with flush toilet and bucket shower.

A marquee-style tent forms the main area where delicious meals are enjoyed as a group around a long, lantern-lit table. There is also a small 'bar' table holding a selection of drinks, a small reference library and a selection of board games.

It might be camping but it doesn't feel like it. Comfortable and great facilities. Blu and the team were fantastic. Big five in one drive!

Absolutely loved Chobe under Canvas. We would have loved to have stayed for another few nights. A very 'rustic' feeling but not much of a 'compromise' on facilities/comfort. Wonderful beds with duvets, wonderful food, and a great atmosphere. Will definitely come back. Are looking at the & Beyond Expeditions already!

Had an amazing river cruise prior to the drive to the to Chobe under canvas, saw hippos, elephants, crocs and all manner of birds on the banks. Arrived late in the afternoon at the camp which consisted of 6 tents and was very hot and dusty in October with masses of bugs. Tents were very comfortable and provided all the modern amenities, shower (canvas bucket) toilet and nice big bed. Meals were good, amazing what the staff could produce out in the middle of nowhere e.g. roast chicken and chocolate pudding. The game experience was also good as lots of animals can be seen along the rivers edge, particularly on the early morning and late afternoon game drives. Our guide was excellent and spotted a carcass of an impala in a tree (not sure how it blended so well), and located a mother leopard and a cub feeding, then playing. He also managed to locate a different mother and cub, the mother lazing on a branch of the tree whilst the cub played in the fork below. He was exceptional and spotting things whilst driving along and our game viewing experience was made all the better for his skill. Also saw huge numbers of baboon heading from the grassy area of the river back into the shelter of the bush, buffalo just lazing under trees and a large herd of elephants heading to the river to cool off and drink. Only down side of this camp was the time of year made it extremely hot and uncomfortable particularly during the time between the morning and afternoon game drive (around 5 hours). The heat was over the top at about 40c and the bugs were just so annoying you had no choice but to sit in the very hot tent to escape the bugs, other than this I would certainly return but at another time of year when it isn't so hot.
