A Luxurious Belmond Safari Lodge Experience Along The Khwai River In Botswana

Guests are treated to morning and afternoon game drives, night drives, guided safari walks, and visits to the local Khwai village.
Khwai River Lodge overlooks the vast Khwai River floodplains, home to abundant wildlife, including predators and many species of wildlife and birdlife. The Khwai Private Reserve is considered one of the most prolific areas for viewing wildlife in Southern Africa.
This location is perfect for individuals who love nature, enjoy observing wildlife, and taking photographs.
All of this combines to make Belmond Khwai River Lodge a perfect escape from city life with access to some of Botswana's best attractions and experiences.
The Khwai Private Game Reserve is a slice of unspoiled African wilderness. Its majestic riverine forests, open plains and seasonal floodplains are home to an abundance of wild game, including lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo.
The Khwai is located next to the Okavango Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve, two of Africa's biggest wildlife sanctuaries.
The Khwai River winds through the private concession area, creating lagoons that are havens for hippos and crocodiles. The river banks are lined with lush vegetation – from palm trees to fever trees – which in turn support a vibrant bird population.
