An authentic bush experience & sustainable community-focused safari

Located on the eastern edge of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Khwai Bush Camp traces the border of the Moremi Game Reserve. A truly magical setting ideal for year-round wildlife encounters, the lodge is nestled amongst a forest of sycamore figs and leadwood trees on the banks of the Khwai River. Exuding all the charm and allure of an old-world safari, your stay here will feel completely in harmony with nature. With two spacious family chalets and a dedicated Cub Club, the lodge is particularly tailored towards welcoming families.

 

The camp itself consists of four standard and two-family chalets dotted along the Khwai River. Retreat to your elegant yet understated chalet, with either a double or twin bed configuration and spacious en suite bathroom, and savour the magnificent view over the river banks. From the sanctuary of a cool thatched interior and a veranda that overlooks Moremi Game Reserve, the richest game viewing area in Botswana, you will be able to watch the magic of Africa unfold.

From the enchanting forests and undulating grasslands to lush floodplains and meandering lagoon, the varied ecosystems mean this is one of the most consistent areas for wildlife encounters year-round. Spend your days floating through the shallow waters of the Delta as the locals have done for centuries in a traditional mokoro or dugout canoe. Savour the utter tranquillity, only broken by the call of wildlife.

Reviews

  • At Khwai Bush Camp you get close to the wonders of nature or rather you’re right in the middle! We not only appreciated the respectful way of observing wildlife of our guide Mighty but also his huge knowledge and his passion. Whether during the bushwalk, the night game drive with the sighting of a giant eagle owl amongst others or during the daily game drives, we learned a lot from Mighty, just watching and enjoying in peace.

  • We spent two nights at the camp in August, we had great safari with Sinka our guide spotting leopard, wild dog, lion killing antelope etc. Not a single Safari without seeing amazing wildlife.
    People at the camp were very nice and friendly and the food was excellent. Camp is in the wild we were even able to see a lioness during our lunch there.

  • This was the 2nd stage of our Botswana safari holiday, travelling as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children (10 and 12)). We were met on the airstrip by our guide “Professor Ken” and driven by jeep to Khwai Bush Camp. We arrived to a very warm welcome of singing and dancing by all the camp staff, followed by drinks and cold flannels to refresh ourselves. That was just the start of a truly first class service which lasted to the very moment that we departed.

  • Our family of 6 spent 3 nights in the Khwai Bush Camp. The experience was outstanding in every way. The staff went to extraordinary lengths to make our stay memorable. The lodge and cottages were comfortable and nicely furnished. The food and special evening under the stars were special treats. And, special thanks to Sinka, our guide, and Kaytee, the camp host, who made our stay in Africa a joy.
