Belmond Khwai River Lodge

  • Located in the north-east of the Okavango Delta
  • 14 luxury tents
  • Swimming pool, spa treatment room
  • Twice-daily game drives

Khwai River Lodge is very luxurious property, one of the largest lodges in the region and one that appeals to clients wishing a comfortable and secure game viewing environment.

Khwai River Lodge is well-run and offers a high level of comfort, yet it will not appeal to those looking for a smaller and more personal safari experience.

Located in the Khwai region of the Okavango Delta, Khwai River Lodge sits on the edge of a forest overlooking Khwai River and the vast floodplains of Moremi Game Reserve. This area is known for a high density of game.

Accommodation is in luxury tents on raised wooden platforms with traditional African thatch roofs and sliding glass doors. They all have four-poster beds, an en suite bathroom and an outside deck where guests can sit and enjoy the wildlife around them.

The central area is raised up on timber with an enormous thatched roof. There is a large lounge, a small library and a dining area. Outside there is a 20m swimming pool on a large deck overlooking the surrounding floodplains. There is also an observation deck under a thatched roof with a small high-powered telescope, an ideal place for guests to watch game.

Activities centre around the twice daily game drives, however guests can swim in the pool and there is a spa treatment room where they can be pampered.

"A very comfortable large lodge and one that guarantees lots of great game viewing. If you can get passed the somewhat hefty price tag then this property caters well for a more mature clientele, or someone looking for a ‘safer’ game viewing experience."
