KHWAI LEADWOOD

Khwai Community Area (bordering the Moremi Game Reserve)
Set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession, this beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time. The elegantly designed camp hosts six luxury tents and one luxury family unit, keeping in line with the intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. The new camp effortlessly bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and feeling like you’re in the great African outdoors. Woven baskets and beaded décor, along with modern elements, create an authentic contemporary African style. Besides the day-time drives in both the Khwai Community Concession and the Moremi Game Reserve which feature Africa’s big attractions – lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant   buffalo, hippo and giraffe – at Khwai Leadwood you are able to explore nature after sunset with a night drive.

experience with some of Africa’s nocturnal and/or more elusive animals. The camp also provides the opportunity to explore the great stands of leadwood and mopane woodlands as well as open grasslands and banks of the Khwai River on foot. 

Days begin with an early morning buffet breakfast before a morning game drive, which is followed by brunch. Explore the lagoon and river by mokoro (canoe) direct from the camp or discover the area on foot with professional guides. Guided walks normally depart from the camp after breakfast, the duration of the walk will depend solely on the group walking. Snacks and cakes are available throughout the day. On the afternoon game drive just before sunset you will stop at a secluded spot for sundowner drinks and snacks before departing on a night game drive. Returning to camp, enjoy cocktails around the campfire before feasting on a lavish dinner. A wide selection of drinks are available at the bar. 

Preserving the romance of yester-year, a simpler life in harmony with nature, Khwai Leadwood will leave you longing to return to Africa. With its captivating sights, sounds and smells, Khwai Leadwood will capture your heart and make you feel like you are a part of the African wilderness. Fall asleep to the chorus of an African lullaby – hundreds of croaking frogs, the splashing of hippos at a midnight buffet, and the urgent call of the lions in that quiet moment just before dawn.
