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.
A group of sable antelopes of about 30 came across us on the Kalowa stretch crossing over to the river. It looks like their season of hiding in the woodlands is coming to an end with waterpans shriveling to nothing they can depend on. This beautiful antelope with facial markings like the oryx was what everyone was dying to see for the past raining season. In Chobe we trust!
