The Khwai Concession provides a patchwork of lagoons, shallow flooded pans, open grass plains, and woodland forests. Combine this with the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve is a private concession that boasts splendid scenery of untouched grasslands, riverine forest, and meandering lagoons and you have the full Botswana floodplain experience. Mokoro through the lagoons and enjoy the abundance of wildlife all around you.

Then head to one of the natural seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, for a completely different yet just as incredible sighting. Stay in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park at our luxurious Thorntree River Lodge and spend your days on the Zambezi river or tracking white rhino with our professional safari guides.

Come experience a unique green season safari in Botswana!

Khwai Bush Camp

Botswana

✈️: Maun International Airport to Khwai Community Area

Khwai Bush Camp, on the edge of the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana, is nestled amongst a forest of sycamore and leadwood trees. A perfect welcome to the green season with dramatic afternoon thunderstorms which are expected to provide much needed relief to wildlife and vegetation. Migrant birds arrive in their flocks and predator hunts are common as vulnerable offspring are born. Experience the vastness of the landscape beyond with a helicopter transfer to the Nxai Pan.

Linyanti Expeditions focuses on walking safaris. The small, intimate camp has 6 tents, ensuring the same personalized service for all 12 guests.

Each stretch canvas tent houses a gazebo-style extension, where beds can be moved to at night to allow a sleep-out experience. A one-of-a-kind adventure awaits you from the comfort of your dedicated, mesh-enclosed private deck.
