Value
Rates from USD 560 per person per night. 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.

What a great experience. Our first trip to Africa, Botswana. Our guide Tony, the whole staff they were incredibly friendly and took really good care of us. The game drives were fantastic except the fact that there were sometimes too many cars driving around. However Tony managed to show us so many wonderful animals. We really felt the thrill and adrenaline when we saw a warthog piglet getting chased and killed by a leopard. We felt it again when the impalas barked their alarm for a lioness on the hunt. She didn’t succeed. And what I’ll never forget was the sight of almost 500 elephants at the riverside, taking their bath, drinking and playing.

We stayed here the first week in November for two nights. It is an experience that I wouldn’t pass up. There were only 4 tents when we were there. They move them every 6 days and what a labor intensive job based on on the details that we found in our tent. Very nice accommodations for being out in the middle of a reserve. We saw just about every animal possible on our first game drive into the camp from the airport! Or so I thought.....on the following drives we even encountered a Civet and Honey Badger! Our guide, Michael, who is fairly new to the company was EXCEPTIONAL. I nicknamed him, my Human Google. He knew it all. We also had a surprise Photo Safari done by Pangolin Tours that was awesome. Michael joined us on this as well. Got to see some great birds on this part of the trip as well. The rest of the staff were also wonderful. Food was good being cooked over an open fire. Bug spray is provided. As well as Swarovski binoculars to use. Tips: The weather was triple digits when we were there. I am not sure I could have done more than the two nights based on that heat in addition to the fact that I am not a camper. Our trip started here and our accommodations improved as our trip went on. I would not end with a trip here.

This safari camp gives the full outdoor experience. These are actual tents with great beds and inside toilets. The food, vehicles and guides were great! The wildlife was varied and very close. We had elephants outside our tent during the night. They move the campsite every five days but all locations should be equally exciting.

In our three-camp journey, Chobe under canvas is the least of the luxury kind because it is a mobile camp. So coming with it are the natural inconveniences - lack of running water (which they do comp with a leather bucket overhead shower which surprisingly afforded a shampoo + shower for me and a shower for my husband, and a basin and water pitcher for washing face and such and plenty of bottled water to keep hydrated), no electricity (so bring battery power pack, or in the jeep, you can charge your phone up as there are two outlets in every row of seats, 3 flat-pin type), and certainly no wifi (but cellphone signals are surprisingly strong, so you can use one phone as a hotspot, and I was able to handle work emergency emails.) And in October, the hottest month of the year, it can get hot. But the enormous advantage is its proximity to the abundance of wild lives. After visiting the other two camps, looking back at Chobe experience, we certainly felt Chobe offered the most sighting, the variety of animals, the easiness of spotting them. If you stay at Chobe for two nights, the tour operator offer a Pangolin river trip as a complimentary activity which is excellent. Pangolin is a tour operator as well with a photo theme, so the boat is equipped with some really serious camera mounted on the structure and you can walk away with the SDHC card with your creative work stored on it. Our guide Michael is a very sweet person and very knowledgeable and the camp manager Daniel is very kind and friendly. Of the three camps Chobe which has only 5 tents is the only one running a communal table, so people get to know each other pretty fast. While the staff cook everything on open fire, the meal is organized and delicious and balanced between green and meat. Another thing to note and wish we had known before the trip is that all camps and each individual room is well stocked with room bug spray, mosquito spray, and all. One only needed to pack sun block. The sun exposure is rather limited because both the jeep and the Pangolin boat are covered with canvas. So while our travel accommodation progressive become more comfortable, I still think Chobe is an experience to have, but to have it at the beginning of the trip, and two nights are probably meaningful but not to stretch the limit of comfort. And if you can avoid the hot month of October, all the better. Overall, Chobe National Park is not to be missed. Okavango Delta which would be our next stop came with lots of chase and tracking to locate wild lives.

You arrive at a camp that is moved every few days so it disturbs the environment as little as possible. You are welcomed by an a Capella performance of 3-4 songs that is so fun! They do an incredible job of giving folks a five star experience in a most incredible national park that is the envy of everyone on the planet who knows about it. You haven't seen wildlife until you visit Botswana, and Chobe is extra special, huge, filled with animals, and protected!!!! Multitudes of animals are commonly seen, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebra, all sorts of deer, Botswana has 450 species of birds, what's not to like? You stay in tents with hot showers, flush toilets and VERY comfortable beds. Our guide Tony did his best to give us an excellent experience! What a great trip, fantastic location, incredible wildlife, exceptional service!!!! ALSO!!! Take the photo safari!!
