Botswana is filled with an abundance of wildlife and birdlife as one gets to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the outdoors.
The Okovango Delta is known for its large populations of mammals and excellent birding, particularly in the breeding season (Tip #1: always keep your binoculars on hand!). This oasis is very much at the center of Botswana's safari industry, a pulsing wetland with the remainder finally flowing into Lake Ngami.
The Khwai Tented Camp offers a safari that has kept an eco-conscious approach and is completely solar-powered. With the main area being under canvas, compromising a comfortable lounge area, simple yet elegant, Khwai Tented Camp is the epitome of a luxury safari.
With hammocks and a sparkling swimming pool, this site is concentrated on wildlife in every aspect with early game drives and a dedicated radio channel in the Khwai to minimize radio interruptions.
Guides accompany guests along drives and walks to help them understand the area and explore trails less trodden inside the park. You can get the chance to encounter a range of wildlife which includes cheetah, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, wild dog and more.
Night drives and walks are not usually permitted in the national parks or reserves, so it is great to have the opportunity to spot some nocturnal game and other elusive animals during the quiet evenings in the bush.
"Khwai has cute tents set on a pond which is full of Hippos. They come out of the pond and crash around outside your tent at night. The food is spectacular. Best of all are the animal encounters. Recommendation: give yourself an extra night in the area!" - Arnold M from Sydney, Austrailia
Cultural tours are also available for guests, allowing one to get a glimpse into the local's lives in their villages. The entire camp is a community-run concession, therefore all proceeds from tourism go directly towards helping people and projects through the Khwai Community Trust.
This incredibly diverse and culturally maintained area lends to the unique safari experience at Khwai Bush Camp. Spend your days on boat safaris or evenings around the campfire and take in all that nature has to offer.
