An Exquisite Family Camp in the Khwai Area (Eastern Border of Moremi Game Reserve)

Khwai Leadwood is one of the newest developments in the African Bush Camps portfolio. Located on a beautiful site within this community-run concession on the eastern border of the Moremi Game reserve. The banks of the lagoon flowing into the Khwai River act 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 Leadwood 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

The camp has a full solar power farm and a sewerage purity system to ensure that 80% of all the water used in camp is recyclable. The camp will comprise of 2 family units (with interleading walkways/rooms) and 2 standard units built on raised decking, with 180 degree views of the lagoon in front of camp. The rooms will have en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers and flush toilets.
