Traveller Reviews

  • I can't speak highly enough of the andbeyond team - the level of comfort and hospitality delivered was truly above and beyond our expectations and we had such phenomenal game guides at all 3 camps. We loved the diversity and different landscapes of the Chobe National Park vs the Okavango Delta; although, Savute Under Canvas was probably my favourite as the smaller more intimate setting allowed us to get to to know the guides and interact with the other campers. We saw so many animals and learnt so much about the history of the land, Botswana's people, geography, and wildlife and can't wait to go back.

  • Savuti Under Canvas – as our first experience of Safari it was incredible. We had some incredible viewings thanks to our ranger, Sam who was amazing (as were the rest of the ‘bachelor’ team).

"If you’re looking for a great authentic tented camp experience in Chobe with personalised butler service and away from the Chobe river crowds, then Savute Under Canvas is your best option. The small and intimate camp moves location within the Savute area of Chobe National Park so the footprint they leave is minimal and the experience is phenomenal. A really great option for the adventurous and eco-conscious traveller."
