Khwai Leadwood Camp
Situated in Botswana's Okavango Delta, Khwai Leadwood Camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River, the only thing that separates the concession from the iconic Moremi Game Reserve, with elephants, hippos and even lions crossing over the river from time to time. Seeing the wildlife maneuver through the water is an unforgettable experience, even for the most travelled safari veterans.
The camp has six standard tents and one family unit, ensuring an intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. Decorated with an authentic contemporary African style, each tent has a private deck with a day bed. The tents are all en suite with both indoor and outdoor showers and the honeymoon suite has a beautiful, secluded bath on the outside deck. For families there is a 2-bedroom room connected by an inter-leading walkway. The unit has an indoor bath and a shared deck. The main area of the camp includes a swimming pool, lounge and a reading area and dining area.
Khwai Leadwood is situated in the Khwai Concession, which is a 1800km area, situated in the northeastern Okavango next to the Moremi Game Reserve. It was formed by the local Khwai villagers, a population of just 400 people, and is managed by the Khwai Development Trust. This local community now runs ecotourism initiatives which actively conserve the environment and manage the wildlife in the concession. The plentiful wildlife is undoubtedly Khwai's biggest drawcard, with the big attractions such as cheetah, lion, leopard, wild dog, buffalo, elephant and giraffe on full display. Activities on offer include game drives, walking safaris and mokoro safaris (water levels permitting), as well as night drives to get an up-close and personal experience with some of Africa's nocturnal and more elusive animals. Offering both adventure and relaxation, as a guest of Khwai Leadwood you will live out your ultimate safari experience - from enjoying a morning walking safari to sipping a gin and tonic overlooking the Khwai River at sunset.
