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.
NOT A GOOD DAY
A martial eagle was seen on a tree which seemed to be a hiding spot for a group of banded mongoose who were foraging unaware of this large bird of prey. It came to time when the mongoose were crossing the elephant path and at a very high speed the big bird came out like a shot. The alpha male mongoose was a responsible old man. One alarm from him and everyone cleared the eagle's target and got under a nearest lying log which the bird nearly crushed himself on to. Hard times never kill.
