Chobe Under Canvas is situated in the Chobe National Park which encompasses 11 700 km2 of wilderness, bordered in the north by the beautiful Chobe River, and buffered on all sides by wildlife management areas and forest reserves allowing for the free movement of game. A wildlife enthusiast’s dream, Chobe National Park is one of the top wilderness reserves in the world and is home to the largest single concentration of elephant.
One afternoon after a long search for buffalos, we were driving on Mokwetus route 14 cutline and saw a dung beetle which over took the Jeep driving at 30km/h and stood in front of us. Flying in our direction, we followed him for about 2 minutes and eventually we came out of a large herd of buffalos. There must have been hundreds of them! The drive ended there as a relief from tiny Scalab that you could easily ignore.
