Up close and personal with Botswana's wildlife

The five Meru-style tents at Chobe Under Canvas are scattered across a secluded area of Botswana’s game-rich Chobe National Park. Game-laden trails meander between the tents, allowing guests up close and personal encounters with herds of elephants, stalking predators and humble plains game. Experience the rustic charm of camping combined with the comfort of a well-established lodge. 

Ramble along in specially modified safari vehicles on morning and afternoon game drives in search of resident game. Private boat cruises on the Chobe River hold uninterrupted views of the floodplains and woodland as well as the abundance of birdlife frequenting its banks, from the chestnut-feathered goliath heron to the slender white-fronted bee-eater. Guided bushwalks reveal the area’s fascinating biodiversity and its exclusive inhabitant – the Chobe bushbuck. 

The walk-in Safari Tents offer en-suite bathrooms complete with an al fresco hot bucket shower and flush toilet. Elegantly furnished with either twin or double beds and sisal matting covered floors, the spacious tents are a comfortable retreat after a day of gruelling safari excursions. An open-sided marquee-style tent serves as a communal area for lantern-lit meals.
