Set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession, this beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time.
Watching these animals manoeuvre through the water is an exceptional experience for even the most travelled safari veterans.
The elegantly designed camp hosts six standard tents and one family unit, keeping in line with the intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. The new camp effortlessly bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and feeling like you’re in the great African outdoors. Woven baskets and beaded décor, along with modern elements, create an authentic contemporary African style.
The facilities on offer at Khwai Leadwood include a traditional fire pit with seating, the perfect spot for a sundowner or pre-dinner drinks, comfortable lounge area and both indoor and outdoor dining areas.
A sun terrace along with a sparkling pool for cool off from the African sun are also available.
During the day, guests can enjoy game drives, walking safaris and mokoro safaris (water levels permitting) on the search for Africa’s big attractions including lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe. An additional virtue of this area is that guests can head off on night drives and get an up-close and personal experience with some of Africa’s nocturnal and more elusive animals.
Khwai’s biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the plentiful and extraordinary wildlife – you’ll never be bored here! Adventure and relaxation are on offer as guests live out their ultimate safari experience – from setting off on a morning walking safari to enjoying a gin and tonic overlooking the Khwai River.
Take a night drive as animal behaviour is different during the evening. Lions awake from their daytime slumber and usually head off on a hunt and the elusive aardwolves, aardvarks, servals and caracals all come out to play so keep your eyes peeled.
Tea, coffee, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages, except premium imported spirits and champagne
