Each of the camp's rooms is a cosy retreat from the elements where you will find large King-size beds (that can also be twins), writing desks, cool ensuite bathrooms and private verandas with views across the grasslands. The camp's main area features a sunken lounge and fire pit, the perfect spot for that first morning cuppa or an early-evening G&T. Looking out over a favourite grazing spot for zebra and elephant, it's a fabulous wildlife-watching base during siesta time too. The dining area, bar and lounge are under the thatch, and are subtly stylish, dotted with sunny cushions and black and white artworks.

Located in the Khwai Private Reserve, a 200,000-hectare area of pristine wilderness the camp sits in the middle of some of the most famous and iconic game-viewing areas on the continent. Here you can expect a true wilderness experience in truly iconic Delta scenery: vast floodplains, sprawling grasslands and an intricate network of channels and lily-filled waterways. These varied habitats support an impressive cast of animals and all the stars of the wildlife show are present - as well as a few extra. With very few other vehicles (and people!) around, you can expect a different activity to enjoy every day, from classic game drives to mokoro trips and boat safaris.

Getting There

Fly from Cape Town or Johannesburg into Maun and from there, you will take a smaller, light aircraft to the Khwai Private Reserve and game drive into camp.
