Itinerary breakdown

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.
