Khwai River Lodge

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Khwai River Lodge is one of the oldest safari lodges in Botswana. It is located five miles north-west of the north gate of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Set under a canopy of old indigenous leadwood and fig trees, the lodge offers a commanding view of the Khwai River flood plain.

The fourteen luxury tents and one premier suite (with its own plunge pool) are built on raised decks with easy chairs and hammocks, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. The tent interiors are appointed with such comforts as an en suite bathroom, private fully stocked mini bar, a four poster bed complete with mosquito netting, and discreet air conditioning.

Activities at the camp include morning and afternoon game drives in open Land Cruisers. Night spotlight game drives and star gazing presentations are also conducted after dinner. A cultural visit to a local village can also be arranged, as well as guided safari walks.  Full-day private game excursions are also available to the nearby Okavango Delta where you’ll have the opportunity to experience a boat cruise (additional charge).  In camp there is a hide, a swimming pool as well as a gym and spa facility.
