The location of Khwai River Lodge, between the Moremi and Chobe game preserves, is the primary reason to stay here. The lodge and cottages directly overlook the river, enabling incredible wildlife viewing without ever leaving the property -- though of course the game drives are...More

Went here with a Tauck tour and it was nothing short of wonderful. Excellent local guides who knew their stuff and truly wanted to share. You truly live among the animals--and need to exercise some care! Once in a lifetime!

About
Description

Nestled on the edge of a leadwood and fig tree forest, overlooking the vast Khwai River floodplains and beyond into the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, sits the luxurious Belmond Khwai River Lodge. Khwai is renowned for its large concentrations of mammals and it is not unusual to see many different types of wildlife from the comfort of your own private deck. As a year round destination for wildlife, predators can regularly be seen in the area, rated as one of the most prolific in Botswana for viewing wildlife. The exceptional location of Khwai makes it a regular host to Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dogs. Birdlife can also be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors near the lodge. At Khwai River Lodge, you are close to Africa's heartbeat and at the centre of a world that has not altered since life began. You can sense this from the moment you arrive.
