The andBeyond Chobe Under Canvas, which is in the wildlife-rich Chobe in northern Botswana, provides guests with an unforgettable safari experience in Southern Africa. This unique wilderness setting features only six en-suite safari tents which are carefully positioned in exclusive semi-permanent camps on or near the Chobe River.
The Chobe National Park in Botswana covers 11, 700 square kilometres of untamed African bush and borders in the north the magnificent Chobe River. This reserve is bounded on all sides by wildlife reserve areas and forest reserves which allow for the free movement of the wild animals.
The Chobe is one of the top wilderness parks in the world and is home to the highest single concentration of elephant. Herds of buffalo and elephant can be observed refreshing themselves at the river's edge. During the dry season, their numbers increase to hundreds and thousands. Two species of area-specific antelope occur here, the puku and the Chobe bushbuck, which cannot be seen in other parts of Botswana except on the Chobe riverfront.
The public guest areas at the lodge feature comfortable tents for dining, meeting for a pre-dinner drink, or just for whiling the time away between safaris. Guests are provided with private butler service, are served delicious Pan African meals as well as traditional bush dinners served under the stars.
The region of Chobe in Botswana offers exceptional opportunities for memorable safari adventures. Travellers to the Chobe Park can witness herds more than two hundred elephants roaming the grasslands as well as extensive herds of buffalo, which can number over four hundred and a variety of wildlife, lining the food-rich banks of the river.
A boat cruise is also offered to which guests can view an abundance of river fauna such as the mighty hippo and the crocodile. Predators are always on the hunt in Chobe, and it's not uncommon to witness the heart-stopping spectacle of a lion kill.
Furthermore, Chobe offers excellent bird-watching with hundreds of species recorded in this particular region. The enthusiastic bird watcher has the rare opportunity to listen to the call of the Woodland Kingfisher and maybe spot the African Fish Eagle in its glory as it swoops over the river endlessly searching for the next meal.
This Camp is open year round as the weather allows for this. Warm hot days with mild evenings and afternoon thundershowers are standard in the summer which is from mid-September to the end of March. Sunny days with chilly mornings and evenings are predominant in the winter - April to mid-September. Rainfall is expected in from October to March.
The Camps are in a Malaria area, and therefore necessary precautions should be taken. We recommend guests to consult their doctors. The tents at the Camps are fully netted and insect proof.
Guests are welcome to make use of the fly-in safaris to the Kasane airport. The guide will collect guests who are staying at the lodge and drive them back again.
The specials listed below will automatically be offered to you when proceeding through the booking process.

A taste of what to expect...
Day 1 - 3: Victoria Falls
One of the world’s greatest natural spectacles, Victoria Falls is a massive curtain of water that tumbles over steep cliffs into the sheer drop of Batoka Falls. Shrouded in legend, romance and myth, long before the Scottish missionary and explorer, Dr David Livingstone ‘discovered’ the Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’.
Choose from a multitude of activities to add on to your stay. Enjoy a tour of the falls, birdwatching and a sunset river cruise. Enquire about safari game drives in the area.
Daredevils will not lack for options, with whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, river boarding, jet boating, abseiling and a host of other activities available in the gorges below Victoria Falls. If you are in search of some gentler adventure, you can try canoeing the calmer waters above the Falls or take to the skies for a spectacular microlight or helicopter flight above the chasm. These activities are at an additional cost.
Day 3 - 5: Chobe National Park
Located in the north of Botswana, with the Chobe River forming the country’s northern border, Chobe National Park is flanked in the south-west by the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve. Towards the south of the Chobe River lie flat floodplains that form a broad sweep of open grassland and woodland. A myriad pans and waterholes dot the plains
Sway with the motion of your 4×4 game drive vehicle, keeping an eager eye out for what the next bend in the road may reveal
Thrill in a photographic boat safari on the Chobe River. Pause in reverent stillness as the riverbank slowly fills up with elephant and then share their delight as the whole herd piles in for a swim.
The Chobe River and its floodplains provide an irresistible attraction for wildlife, which congregates there during the dry season. Vast herds of elephant abound, with herds between 500 and 5 000 strong sometimes seen on the floodplains. Lion, spotted hyena, red lechwe, puku, zebra, sable and roan can also be seen
Day 5 - 8: Okavango Delta
The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta and is often referred to as a miracle of nature. A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife, Botswana’s Okavango Delta lies like a sparkling jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Known as the river that never finds the sea, the Delta’s crystal-clear channels spread over the thirstlands of the Kalahari with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands
Adapted for a life in and out of water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness. Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, while honey badgers can be seen in broad daylight. Tall termite mounds are homes for families of dwarf and banded mongoose
Day 8: Departure
After breakfast enjoy a leisurely game drive to the airstrip where a light aircraft will be waiting to fly you, and fellow guests, to Maun International Airport. Savour the views of the sparkling lagoons and palm tree islands as you fly over this water wonderland for one last time
We wave a fond farewell to you as you proceed with your onwards journey
