Located in the community-run Khwai Concession in the Okavango Delta, the beautiful Khwai Leadwood Camp is hidden under trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is the only thing that separates the iconic Moremi game reserve and this terrain. From time to time, hippos, elephants and even lions cross the river. Watching these animals maneuver through the water is an extraordinary experience even for well-traveled safari veterans.
The elegantly designed camp houses six standard tents and a family unit, which does justice to the intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. The new camp bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and the feeling of being in the African nature. Braided baskets and pearl decorations combine with modern elements to create an authentic contemporary African style.
During the day, guests can go on game drives, hiking and mokoro safaris (if the water level permits) in search of Africa's great attractions, including lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe. An added benefit of this area is that guests can take night drives to get up close and personal with some of Africa's nocturnal and otherwise hard-to-find animals.
Khwai's greatest asset is undoubtedly the rich and extraordinary wildlife - you will never get bored here! Adventure and relaxation are on offer - from a morning walking safari to enjoying a gin and tonic with a view of the Khwai River.
The behavior of the animals is different in the evening. Lions awaken from their daytime sleep and usually go hunting, and the rare aardwolves, aardvarks, servals and caracals come out of their hiding places - so keep your eyes open!
The mokoro is the "African gondola" and used to be the most important means of transport for the village members of the Okavango Delta. In the past they were made from the trunks of liver sausage trees, today they are mostly made from more environmentally friendly fiberglass. It is a truly relaxing and mind-altering experience to see where the sky ends and where the water begins while gliding down the mirror-smooth.
Walking is a truly exciting way to experience the African bush. You can delve deeper into the details of living beings, large and small, and explore the environment in which they live, how they think and act. It appeals to all of the senses and it's a great way to be active between amarula coffee and sunset.
The gateway to the world-famous Okavango Delta is the small town of Maun. In terms of area as large as Schleswig Holstein, the Okavango Delta is the largest inland delta in the world. Almost the entire spectrum of the fauna of southern Africa is at home here and can be observed in a very short time, even the rare rhinos can be found again.
Chobe National Park was established in 1967 as the country's first national park shortly after independence. In total, up to 90,000 elephants, buffaloes, hippos and antelopes live in the park. But lions, leopards and cheetahs can also be found here. In addition, 440 native bird species make the heart of every amateur ornithologist beat faster.
The Moremi Game Reserve is a 4871 km² nature reserve in Botswana and is considered one of the most beautiful and exciting protected areas in the world. The Moremi Reserve forms the heart of the Okavango Delta, it extends from the northeast part to the west of the delta and covers almost a third of the total area.
