An authentic bush experience and sustainable community-focused safari

Set within the Okavango’s community-run Khwai Concession, the camp laps up its beautiful lagoon front setting. Perched on a raised deck, with sweeping lagoon views connecting to the Khwai River, this beautiful camp seamlessly blends into the surrounding woodland area. Simple yet elegant, Khwai Tented Camp strikes the perfect balance between homely touches whilst not detracting from the wild environment.


The camp consists of six en suite tents all dotted along the lagoon for the utmost privacy. The camp preserves the romance of yester-year, a simpler life in harmony with nature. There are no permanent structures; everything can be removed to leave the wilderness exactly as we found it, minimizing our impact on the environment. As Khwai is a community-run concession all proceeds from tourism go directly to help the local people and projects through the Khwai Community Trust.

Besides the day-time drives which can feature Africa’s big attractions – lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe – you will be able to explore nature after sunset with a night drive.


  • Wonderful place to stay, elephant grazing outside my room shoulder to shoulder with my deck, tracked a young leopard and watched a lion pair, my guide agreed to a breakfast sunrise run, he did the cooking, what fun.

  • We stayed 3 night here and 3 at Linyanti all with African Bush Camps. my wife and I could not recommend these camps highly enough.

    The location, staff, food, accommodation and of course the game drives, Mokoro adventures, safari walking, were just second to none.

  • We went on a big anniversary trip to Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana staying throughout in African Bush Camps and The Victoria Falls Hotel. Khwai Tented Camp was our last stop. Despite two weeks of 5.30am wake up calls we were still ready to enjoy the game drives because the staff were so enthusiastic and helpful! Our guide found me the elusive leopards we hadn’t seen elsewhere to really round off our trip.

  • The service is top-notch, and the host, Lebo, does a wonderful job of making the guests feel welcomed and special. After going out on safari with their excellent guides (we had Mighty and Aubrey, who were both impressive trackers and cool/interesting people) you’re always greeted back by friendly faces and amazing energy. After spending three nights at the camp, it really does start to feel like a home, and it is difficult to leave.
