Khwai Leadwood Camp, nestled in the heart of the Khwai Private Reserve, a community-run Concession, is an exclusive wildlife haven that invites you to embark on a safari experience like no other. From the tranquil seclusion of your accommodation to the pulse-pounding encounters with Africa's iconic species, Khwai Leadwood promises an escape combining opulence and adventure. 

The heart of Khwai Leadwood Camp beats with the rhythm of safari adventures that promise exhilarating wildlife encounters. Their skilled guides unveil the secrets of the Khwai region through game drives that take you deep into the heart of the African bush. Lions stalking through tall grass, elephants congregating at waterholes, and leopards lounging in trees – each moment is a tableau of nature's drama.

Khwai Leadwood Camp's spacious and elegantly designed tents redefine camping with sophisticated furnishings and modern amenities. Picture yourself awakening to the gentle rustling of leaves and the calls of distant wildlife as you relish the comfort of your plush bed. 

The elegantly designed camp hosts six standard tents and one family unit, all well-shaded from the riverine forest, keeping in line with the intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. The camp effortlessly bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and feeling like you're in the great African outdoors. Woven baskets, beaded décor, and modern elements create an authentic contemporary African style.

Each tented suite offers en-suite bathrooms boasting indulgent bathtubs and rain showers, where relaxation is paramount, and your private deck provides an intimate space to absorb the sweeping views of the wilderness. Every moment at Khwai Leadwood is a picturesque one.

For your culinary journey, Khwai's talented chefs craft gourmet dishes inspired by local ingredients. Whether savouring a decadent breakfast overlooking the lagoon or enjoying a romantic dinner under the starlit African sky, every bite is an experience to cherish. Be sure to ask Safari Guru to pre-organise an interactive bush picnic with the team, where your taste buds awaken amidst the breathtaking landscapes.

Khwai's biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the plentiful and extraordinary wildlife – you'll never be bored here! Adventure and relaxation are on offer as guests live their ultimate safari experience – from setting off on a morning walking safari to enjoying a gin and tonic overlooking the Khwai River - all that separates the iconic destination from the wildlife-rich Moremi Game Reserve.

During the day, Khwai Leadwood Botswana guests enjoy game drives, walking safaris and mokoro safaris (water levels permitting) on the search for Africa's big attractions; lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and abundant birdlife.

As the sun sets and darkness descends, the Khwai Private Reserve reveals a whole new realm of wildlife activity. Embark on thrilling night drives, a unique experience that offers a glimpse into the elusive creatures that emerge after dusk. With the aid of spotlights, you might encounter the enigmatic African wildcat, the bushbaby's luminous eyes, and even the nocturnal hunters on their prowl.
