The camp preserves the romance of yester-year, a simpler life in harmony with nature. From the sanctuary of a cool thatched interior and a veranda that overlooks the famed Moremi Game Reserve, one of the richest game viewing areas in Botswana, our guests are able to watch the magic of Africa unfold. The area offers varied ecosystems- from enchanted forests and undulating grasslands to lush floodplains and meandering lagoons, this is one of the most consistent areas for wildlife encounters year-round.
Khwai Tented Camp will remain on its current site for 2017, on the banks of a lagoon flowing into the Khwai river. The tents are being upgraded to a more modern and spacious Serengeti-style tent, with stylish and comfortable interiors and private bathrooms with running water, giving a genuine safari camp feel. The camp comprises of 6 elegant tents perched on wooden decking overlooking the tranquil waters of the lagoon. The camp exudes the charm and aura of the old Africa in a new era, and provides a truly authentic African safari experience.
Khwai Leadwood Under Thatch will form part of the dedicated group of African Bush Camps family camps, and for 2017 replaces plans for Khwai Leadwood, our tented family camp in the Khwai Community Area. We had plans to build Khwai Leadwood to open in 2017, however due to delays in environmental permits to start building and now with the floods from the summer rains, we could not put those plans into action and therefore there are delays in their roll out. We are pleased to offer you an alternative in the form of Khwai Leadwood Under Thatch as our family camp located on the swelling Khwai River. Khwai Leadwood Under Thatch will possess the same level of style, interiors, comfort and standard that our guests have come to expect from African Bush Camps properties, and is a great link to our collection of family-friendly camps in Linyanti, Hwange and Livingstone. Khwai Tented Camp will remain on the current site within the Khwai Community Reserve. In 2018, both Khwai Tented Camp and Khwai Leadwood will open on the new site on the Khwai River, where the river offers a permanent source of water in front of all units and magical views of a lush forest and floodplain of the Moremi Game Reserve.
Khwai Tented Camp and Khwai Leadwood Under Thatch will both open in June 2017 for new bookings.
