Relish unique mobile tented camp accommodation in the heart of Botswana's Chobe National Park.
Chobe Under Canvas is usually found in the northern parts of the Chobe National Park, but the location never stays the same as the tents are moved every five or six days to ensure minimal impact on this pristine wilderness. Nowhere can one be closer to untamed Africa than at Chobe Under Canvas, as all that stands between you and the wildlife is a thin piece of canvas. At night, you will be totally immersed in the natural sounds of the bush as the wilderness comes alive with its nocturnal soundtrack.
Attentive staff ensure that all guests are tended to. As there are only five two-person tents, guests enjoy a high level of intimacy and personal attention. Inside your tent, you will find everything you need to ensure a comfortable stay. The spacious tents either have a double bed or twin beds. The ‘bedroom’ has a flask of cold water, rechargeable lanterns, a bedside table and a luggage chest. In the back of the tent you will find your en suite bathroom, even featuring a flushing toilet with its own canvas door. In the ‘bathroom’ you will find a filled water jug, tin basin with soaps, a shaving mirror, rechargeable lantern on a wooden table, hanging rail, canvas shelves, a laundry bag, and insect repellent. The highlight of the bathroom is the bucket shower that awaits you full of hot water after a day out in the field.
Additional, larger tents serve as the lounge, a bar and a dining area. Chobe Under Canvas even includes a small library, affording guests the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the animal species that they are surrounded by. In the middle of nowhere, the staff of Chobe Under Canvas still manage to deliver three delicious meals every day. To quench your thirst, there are soft drinks, house wines, local beers, local spirits, teas, and coffees.
Ultimately, the wildlife is why people visit this area, and the game viewing never disappoints. The sheer abundance of large mammals and birds in the area is mind-boggling. As the area is free of hunting and the animals have been habituated to game viewing, the wildlife in the area is reasonably relaxed. There are afternoon and morning game drives where large varieties of animals are often spotted, but the highlights of visiting Chobe are typically the exceptional scenes and sightings enjoyed on the sunset safari cruises.
