Chobe National Park, Botswana

Chobe Under Canvas

Small and intimate, Chobe Under Canvas seeks to capture the atmosphere of a classic mobile safari camp. Positioned in the heart of Chobe National Park, the camp moves to a different location on the riverfront every month.

Chobe Under Canvas is an exclusive tented safari camp, ideally located alongside the Chobe River. Small and private, Chobe Under Canvas recalls the mobile safari camps of old; guests are accommodated in private safari tents, and served by their own private butler.

This small mobile camp consists of just 6 tents and a communal guest area where you can relax between game drives or enjoy pre-dinner drinks.

As a mobile camp, Chobe Under Canvas doesn't have a fixed location. Rather, it moves to a new location on a once or twice-monthly basis, though always on the riverfront and within the boundaries of the National Park. Its location in the heart of Chobe means that game-viewing is typically excellent, though do keep in mind that this area of the park tends to be busy and doesn't offer quite the same level of exclusivity as a private reserve.


There are a mere 6 tents at Chobe Under Canvas, ensuring a very intimate experience. The tents are conventional meru-style safari tents, furnished to a high standard, with twin or double beds, and en-suite bathrooms with outdoor shower and flush toilet. Hot water is available on demand.

One of the most luxurious mobile camping options in Botswana, Chobe Under Canvas offers a level of comfort comparable with a permanent camp, but with all the advantages that come with a mobile camp.


Delicious home-cooked meals are served in comfortable guest areas, while between meals your private butler will cater to any requests.
