Safaris have changed unbelievably over the past 50 or so years, but with Chobe Under Canvas you can recapture the original sense of discovery, of exploring the African wilderness and falling asleep in a luxurious tent to the natural soundtrack of the wildlife.
Chobe National Park covers an area of 11,700km and comprises fertile floodplains, woodland and rivers. It has Africa’s largest concentration of elephant and is the perfect place to witness these majestic animals. Large herds of buffalo, giraffe and a wide variety of plains game can be seen grazing on the Chobe Plains.
Chobe under Canvas is one of the most authentic ways to visit the Chobe National Park, but you won’t miss out on luxuries such as excellent service and delicious bush cuisine. Set on secluded campsites within the national park and moved every five or six days, the camp comprises just five comfortable en suite tents. Hot bucket showers, cosy furnishings, and dinner by candlelight under an inky, star-studded sky all add to the magnificent atmosphere in camp.
Twice daily game drives allow you to cover larger areas of the park in search of beautiful herds of elephant at the water’s edge, as well as a host of other plains game, such as zebra, puku and the beautiful Red Lechwe. Enjoy refreshing cocktails and canapés on a leisurely sundowner cruise, watching as the sun fades in a spectacle of pink and orange and the wildlife emerge in the cooler evening air. The excitement increases as prides of lion, leopard and cheetah become active, hunting in the fading light of dusk.
