We love...Belmond Khwai River Lodge

Botswana
 

Belmond Khwai River Lodge nestles on the edge of a Leadwood forest overlooking the vast floodplains of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve in Botswana, known for its exceptional range of big game.

Accommodation:

All 14 of the luxury tents at Belmond Khwai River Lodge are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering magnificent views of the African landscape. The tents are shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.

Sounds of wildlife surround you as you relax on your large private deck furnished with easy chairs and a hammock. The deck also provides a spectacular environment for enjoying a private dinner in complete harmony with your surroundings, ideal for special a occasion or just as a treat.

The tent interiors are luxuriously appointed with en suite bathrooms, a private fully stocked mini bar, four poster bed with mosquito netting as well as discreet air conditioning.

Activities:

Wildlife

Game Drive

On early morning game drives expect to see a huge range of creatures, from big cats such as lions and leopards, to hippo, rhino, antelope, giraffe and buffalo. Widely acknowledged to be the predator capital of the world, this is the only place in Botswana where the Big Five can be found

Game viewing vehicles sit up to only 6 guests, which allows everyone to enjoy a window seat.

Bird Watching

Many visitors come to Belmond Khwai River Lodge purely to experience its huge variety of more than 300 species of birds. If this is you, then do contact us in advance and let us advise on the perfect time of year to see what interests you the most. For instance, some of our visitors time their trip to coincide with the arrival of the massive flocks of carmine bee eaters on their annual migration.

But at any time of year it is wonderful to head out into the bush and among the beautiful trees that surround this camp. Spot the endangered wattled crane, ground hornbill, eagle, several types of stork and many beautiful singing birds such as larks. Special species for twitchers include Arnot’s Chat and Hartlub’s Babbler.

Moonlight Safaris

Night drives “into the middle of nowhere” are an amazing experience—a rare opportunity to be surrounded by the infinite darkness of the African bush. Don’t say a word, but simply gaze up at the stars and listen to the sounds. Nocturnal animals are out on the prowl—scuffling, howling and, if you are lucky, emitting the occasional deep-throated roar.

Star Gazing

The open skies around Belmond Khwai River Lodge make it the perfect place to experience the vast, dark dome of the African night sky. “A jewel box” is how one of our guides describes it, and certainly it is a wealth of riches from the Milky Way to Orion and Venus.

Discover how Bushmen used the stars to locate the true south. And, using a powerful telescope, gaze on constellations that visitors from the northern hemisphere may never have seen before, including the Southern Cross.

Wildlife

Village Life

Belmond Khwai River Lodge enjoys a unique location close to a San bushmen’s village. You may wish to visit this village and you may be invited into a private home to experience aspects of the villagers way of life of people who have had to adapt their ancient traditions to modern times.

Walking Safari

On a walking safari through the delta you are totally enveloped in nature. You spot amazing things close-up: an insect, animal tracks, big game droppings, swarming termite mounds. These small, unexpected aspects of life often make the biggest impression. If a game drive is like reading a book: a walking safari is actually like becoming a character in that book.
