Khwai River Lodge

A setting on the Khwai River floodplains, overlooking the Moremi Game Reserve, gives Khwai River Lodge one of the best locations in the area.

A setting on the Khwai River floodplains gives this luxurious tented camp one of the best locations in the area. The open, wooded landscape is particularly beautiful and thanks to its position overlooking the Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai River Lodge has long had a reputation for excellent game viewing.

Expertly-led game drives explore both Moremi and the private concession in which the lodge sits, affording activities not permitted in the reserve: guided walks, spot-lit night drives, and off-road driving for up-close sightings. In between game drives, treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment or a dip in the pool, complete with sun loungers and shade umbrellas. A gym, internet access and video library are among the other conveniences at this long established but completely modernised lodge.

Each of Khwai River Lodge’s 14 tents sits on a raised platform with unfettered views of the floodplains, home to grazing antelope and thirsty elephants. The tents feature en suite bathrooms and plenty of creature comforts but for the ultimate in exclusivity and indulgence, the Private Suite is a romantic favourite and features a private guide and vehicle. Accessible by air and road, Khwai River Lodge makes an unbeatable combination with a water-based Okavango Camp and a stay in the Chobe National Park.


Lodge Highlights:

  • Grand, Air-conditioned Tented Suites
  • Superb Game Viewing & Birding
  • Private Suppers & Spa Treatments
  • Night Drives, Village Visits & Stargazing

Khwai River Lodge conducts most of its game drives in the Moremi Game Reserve, a short drive from camp. The Khwai area has long has a reputation for game viewing and rarely disappoints: permanent water ensures year-round wildlife, especially during the increasingly hot and dry winter months when great numbers of elephant, antelope and buffalo move into the area. Predators are drawn to the bounty, and Khwai is famous for sightings of lion, leopard and wild dog as well as many species of eagle and vulture. Morning and late afternoon game drives are supplemented with spot-lit night drives, guided nature walks and visits to the local Khwai village for an insight into life on the wild fringes of the Okavango.
