Khwai River Lodge
Khwai River Lodge is one of the Okavango's oldest lodges and it had already been running for a number of years when Chris, from Expert Africa, first visited it in around 1992. He still has very fond memories of the original camp with its understated little bungalows dotted amongst leadwood trees on the edge of Khwai River's floodplain. Much of this venerable old lodge was demolished a few years later and today, apart from the basic structure of its old office which has been preserved as a small museum and curio shop, it’s a much more upmarket offering and from the rubble of this old camp, a new more opulent lodge has arisen.
Our view of Khwai River Lodge
Khwai River Lodge is a well-run and very substantial luxury safari lodge in a picturesque area. The game densities here are usually high, especially toward the latter parts of the dry season although there are a lot of other people around too, relatively speaking. The range of activities at Khwai River Lodge are a little constrained when they take place in Moremi Game Reserve where walking, off-road driving and night drives are banned but there is still the chance to walk (local conditions permitting) and drive at night in the local concession.
Khwai River Lodge is situated just outside of Moremi Game Reserve near the heart of the Delta
