Chobe Under Canvas is an exclusive tented safari camp set up on or close to the Chobe River. &Beyond has secured a number of prime sites in Chobe National Park for the sole use of their Under Canvas concept, consisting of just 5 carefully positioned luxury tented suites accommodating a maximum of 10 guests.
Each luxury safari tent has a personal butler and boasts a double bed, en-suite bathroom with a separate toilet and an alfresco bucket shower with hot water delivered on request. This approach is in the tradition of the true safaris of old, and it is a rare privilege to experience in this day and age. This extraordinary safari is the essence of a journey to Africa; with the simplicity of luxury camping and the relaxing solitude of the wilderness, this experience will bestow on the guest a sense of peace and fulfilment, as well as captivating memories of an African safari.
The central area comprises comfortable and spacious tents used for dining and meeting for pre-dinner drinks. During the day, guests can spend time between safari game drives, relaxing with an ice-cold beer or cool drink or watching some of the hundreds of species of birds seen in the Chobe National Park. Delicious Pan-African meals and traditional bush dinners are served under softly lit canvas canopies or out in the bush away from the camp under the stars of the African night sky.
Morning and afternoon game drives in a semi-open 4x4 vehicle will reveal the variety of Chobe's vegetation and geological features, offering extreme contrasts and a fantastic cross-section of wildlife. A boat cruise along the Chobe River is a spectacular event with the opportunity to watch Africa's wildlife, especially elephants and buffalo, from close quarters drinking at the water's edge. Where possible, guided walking safaris are offered to guests.
