Very comfortable tented accommodation where we were looked after and entertained by an excellent team of staff. The wildlife viewing was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of our 3 night stay. Only downside, as this is a National Park not a private concession, occasionally too many vehicles pitch up at a particular animal sighting.

De grandes tentes vraiment confortables avec un très bon lit, douche et wc privés. La nourriture excellente et un personnel très attentionné, tout cela au milieu de la vie sauvage. Nous avons retrouvé le même confort et le même accueil dans les camps de Savuti Moremi et Nxai Pan. En plus le guide-pisteur de &beyond connaissait parfaitement son environnement et avec lui nous étions toujours en confiance même très proches des animaux.

After a flight from AndBeyond Xaranna in the Okavango Delta and a short road transfer, I arrived at Chobe Under Canvas. I instantly felt right at home due to the warm welcome I received from the camp manager, Igobe, who was amazing throughout my entire stay. When I first booked the two nights at Chobe Under Canvas the month prior as part of my six night Botswana flying safari, I wasn’t quite sure about the tented safari camp but I was immediately put at ease when I arrived and met Igobe. Igobe and his staff at Chobe Under Canvas were so accommodating which more than made up for any lack of amenity due to the nature of the tented camp. In fact, the service was better than five star properties I’ve stayed around the world. Therefore, if you aren’t an avid camper like myself, don’t hesitate in spending a few nights under canvas. It’s a experience you don’t want to miss. The staff does an amazing job loading the tents with all of the amenities you need so once you settle in for the night everything is contained in your tent, but they are only a short distance away if you need them. And the food at all of the meals was some of the best I’ve ever had. I’ll forever cherish the memories of the community campfire and open-air dinners with the camp staff and other guests where I heard lions calling out to one another in the night and saw the stars under the vast African sky. It’s an experience I’ll never forget, and someday I hope to return for another visit.

We recently returned from our honeymoon where we spent the first leg at Chobe Under Canvas. This was nothing short of an incredible experience. We can't imagine the immense logistics behind such a camp setup in the middle of nowhere, but the staff at Chobe Under Canvas executed it flawlessly. The guides Tony and Innocent were incredible and knew so much about Botswana and all the wildlife, the food was amazing, and the experience was unforgettable. If you are considering a true safari experience, away from overwhelming hordes of tourists, go here! You are glamping and this is about as nice as you can get but still have that true camping experience/feel. If you are not adventurous stick with your local zoo. I really wouldn't give much credibility to any review that doesn't give this camp 5 stars. We had giraffes walk through our camp, how could it get any better? Everyone was so wonderful and it was the perfect adventure.

Although this was certainly not our first safari experience and we had stayed at several, excellent &Beyond properties previously, I must admit I was a little concerned when our travel agent suggested two nights in a tent, without electricity and running water, in Botswana, in October, when temperatures can be extreme! However, I am so glad that I agreed to the suggestion, as the overall experience, 'under canvas' within Chobe National Park, was memorable, with two nights probably being the optimal length of stay and ideally at the start of your trip to Botswana. The camp itself is less than 2 hours drive from (the relatively new) Kasane airport, including a good stretch driving within the Park. The camp consists of six or so comfortable tents, with battery generated torch-lamp lighting, hot water bucket showers, a large wash jug and bowl and a flushing toilet. Igobe, the camp manager and his team really make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive and do a great job at looking after and feeding you, with communal meals eaten in front of an atmospheric fire, looking up at the stars! The camp does relocate and move around the Park every few days, so do check (if you can) where you might be camping, as we thought a location overlooking the Chobe river would have been ideal, rather than the bush site that we experienced. Chobe National Park itself is a wonderful place to visit and a 'must do', is to take a boat along the Chobe river, which is teeming with birds, herds of elephants and hippos. It is a great way to experience the park, in addition to the animal drives (I hate the term 'game drives'!) on land and if you can, take the Pangolin photo (river) safari, where you are taught how to optimally use a 600mm zoom, with an 8GB SD card to use and take home. The wildlife in the park is good and, in addition to numerous elephants, different antelopes, hippos and giraffe, we saw a couple of leopards but sadly no lions. Overall it was fun and memorable experience at Chobe Under Canvas, that we would very much recommend.
