Welcome to Chobe Under Canvas
Northern Botswana’s famous Chobe National Park is a must-see wildlife destination accessed via Kasane Airport. Covering almost 11 000 km² (6 836 mi.²) it was the country’s first national park. A haven for wildlife in the dry season, Chobe is renowned for its large concentration of elephant and buffalo, which congregate along the Chobe River. Chobe Under Canvas is situated in the park’s northern reaches, ideally positioned close to the river.
Live the adventure of a lifetime as close to nature as you can get. Our exclusive, semi-permanent campsites are perfectly situated near the Chobe River at the northern end of the Chobe National Park. The common guest area comprises a spacious tent for dining, pre-dinner drinks, or simply whiling away the time between game viewing adventures with a good book and a frosted beer or glass of wine. Delicious meals cooked over the coals are shared around a blazing fire.
You’ll love the spaciousness of our mobile tents. Each of the five canvas tents boasts a comfortable double or twin bed, as well as an ensuite bathroom, separate flush WC and an outdoor bucket shower – steaming hot water is available on request. A private butler is on hand to assist with any requirements. Well-worn game paths that meander through the safari tents and down to the water’s edge hold the promise of up-close-and-personal sightings.
*Please note: Botswana is currently experiencing a drought. Water levels change yearly and weather patterns are unpredictable.
