Khwai Tented Camp is situated in a community-run concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. The Khwai River forms a boundary between the reserve and the community area, and as the sole source of water for miles around attracts wildlife from afar. As the game reserve is community-run, a percentage of tourism fees go directly to help local people and projects through the Khwai Community Development Trust. Guests will enjoy spacious tented accommodation in six twin–bedded Meru-style tents, complete with comfortable beds and private en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot-water bucket showers.
As part of a community concession, Khwai Tented Camp allows guests to enjoy night drives and walking activities (which are not permitted in the National Parks). Game drives in open 4WD vehicles are on offer as part of the daily activities. Exploring after dark with spotlights gives guests an opportunity to discover the nocturnal animals which are rarely encountered during the day. There is the added opportunity to explore the surrounding wilderness on foot and enjoy a close encounter with flora and fauna.
Khwai Tented Camp has recently been relocated to a semi-permanent site within this community-run concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. The new exclusive location of the Khwai Tented Camp, on the banks of a lagoon flowing into the Khwai River, acts as a boundary between the reserve and the community area, offering visitors staying here several unique ways to experience Africa. Besides the day-time drives which can feature Africa’s big attractions – lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe – guests at Khwai Tented Camp are able to explore nature after sunset with a night drive. This activity, along with the guided walking safaris, is not usually permitted in the National Parks or Game Reserves, and allows guests to get an up close and personal experience with some of Africa’s nocturnal and / or more elusive animals. The camp also provides the opportunity to explore the great stands of leadwood and mopane woodlands as well as open grasslands and banks of the Khwai River on foot.
