Belmond Khwai River Lodge
Belmond Khwai River Lodge, Khwai Concession, Botswana
Belmond Khwai River Lodge is situated on the edge of a leadwood and fig tree forest, overlooking the vast Khwai River floodplains and beyond into the Moremi Wildlife Reserve.
Khwai is renowned for its large concentrations of mammals and it is not unusual to see many different types of wildlife from the comfort of your own private deck. In the centre of camp there is a large thatched bar and dining area.
There are comfortable chairs, books, magazines and even a chess set. Outside there is a large swimming pool on raised decking and a small observation deck with a telescope and thatch roof - ideal for game spotting in the heat of the day.
Khwai's sixteen canvas rooms are spread out in a long line, thus meaning the furthest is a good 5 minute walk from the bar. All the rooms are very luxurious, raised on platforms with polished wooden floors and shaded by a thatch roof.
Each luxury tent has a large four poster bed with mosquito netting, air conditioning, a safe and en-suite bathroom with double shower. In the front of each tent a large and shady veranda has safari chairs overlooking the river and dinner can be served on your veranda on request.
