Nestled in the heart of the Okavango Delta's community-run Khwai Concession, this enchanting camp is discreetly positioned among the trees along the Khwai River's edge.

The camp, adorned with six standard tents and a family unit, maintains an intimate and exclusive wilderness ambiance. Seamlessly blending luxury accommodation with the essence of the African outdoors, the camp features a design that harmonizes woven baskets, beaded décor, and modern elements into an authentic contemporary African style.

Daytime adventures include game drives, walking safaris, and mokoro safaris (subject to water levels), providing guests with opportunities to encounter Africa's majestic wildlife, from lions and cheetahs to elephants and giraffes. The unique charm of the Khwai area extends to night drives, allowing guests a close encounter with Africa's elusive nocturnal creatures.

Great safari experience

Susan S, - September 2023

This was our first safari experience and it exceeded my expectations. The staff was kind and very welcoming. Our guide, Gilbert, was the BEST! He is so knowledgeable and friendly. Such a nice man. We saw a lion kill and wild dogs in the same day! The accommodations were nice and the food was excellent. Highly recommend!
