Khwai Botswana

Khwai Botswana

Sandwiched in between the moremi game reserve and the linyanti is khwai, one of the greatest wilderness areas in Botswana, made up of swamplands and large mopane forests and huge areas of grass plains, khwai is home to lions, leopards, elephants, cheetah, wild dogs (painted dogs), buffalo and many other types of birds and antelope.

Getting there

There are three different ways of getting to khwai, the first option is to self drive in through moremi from Maun or through the linyanti if you are coming in from Kasane .
The other option is to use a tour operator such as Bush baby calls safaris and allow them to organize your safari, take care of you, set up your camp and take you on safari, the nice thing about this opinion is that it is hassle free and very adaptable to your requirements/desires
The third way is the luxury option and that is to fly into khwai land at the khwai river airstrip and be collected by your safari hosts,

Where to stay

Camping: the campsites at kwai are managed by the skl group in maun, each site has running water, and a fire place, the ablutions are very clean and have flush toilets and hot and cold water showers, unfortunately the baboons are troublesome and have been known to break into both tents and cars (a reminder of why you should never feed monkeys or baboons) the hyenas also are very active in and around the camp as soon as the sun sets

Lodge accommodation:
Khwai River Lodge (Belmond safaris)
Khwai tented camp (African Bush Camps)
Machaba Camp (Little Machaba)

The Moremi reserve is home to all the big five as well as a vast variety of other species including the beautiful African Wild Dog and the sometimes elusive Bat Eared Fox.


Getting There: One of the more common ways to explore the Moremi is to self drive, one can even Hire a 4x4 in Maun and then drive with confidence into the Moremi, a 4x4 is essential when exploring the Okavango delta and the Moremi game reserve is no exception, one of the worst parts is the section of road that starts at the little village of Serobe and ends at the wildlife veterinary gate just before the road forks at the Khwai/Moremi junction, this section is very bumpy as well as being incredibly sandy. However the roads are always changing and in the rainy season, some roads disappear altogether.
If self driving is not your cup of tea, there are…
