Both the lodge area and the individual units were superb. The staff is highly competent and very friendly. It is hard to imagine a better experience. The guides made every game drive a top notch experience.

From the day we arrived to the day we left, we could not stop looking at the view. The main area at the Lodge has the most incredible view across the river - it's like watching a wildlife film in front of your eyes! A constant stream of elephants, hippos, crocs, impala, stunning bird life right in front of you... More

I stayed here as part of a Tauck Tour, for two nights in June. I traveled as a single, so I had that lovely room all to myself. One afternoon, I stayed back at the lodge and napped in the hammock, which was blissful. The staff could not have been nicer and everyone I encountered was most helpful and pleasant.... More

This was our first time in Botswana and I can't tell you enough of the wonderful experience we had at Khwai. All throughout the vacation we felt stress free. The staff, the food, the service, all the different touches were amazing. Everything was fabulous! Excellent all around.

We visited Khwai River Lodge for 4 days in July. What a wonderful experience! The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The food was five star. A special mention, Richard our guide, made our stay even more wonderful with his knowledge of the wildlife and plantlife and he went out of his way to show us and find us all... More

Every year or so I plan a father/daughter trip… this year’s destination was Africa. We had the pleasure of staying at Khwai River Lodge, which is located within Chobe National Park and borders with Moremi National Game Reserve. The lodge will blow you away… There are about a dozen “tent” suites at the lodge, and while they are in fact... More

Fabulous lodge with fabulous staff and great views with Hippos wallowing in the river beside the lodge and elephants grazing right outside the balcony. the guides were excellent in observing and educating us on everything from flowers and grasses to termites and lions. Food was great and service was excellent - really enjoyed the staff singing an African welcome!

We recently stayed at the lodge for four nights with a group doing a photographic safari. Being fussy photographers, we had special needs like waking up earlier than normal to get the sunrise shots, staying out longer than usual etc and I need to say that the staff at the lodge were amazingly accommodating. Every aspect of our trip was... More

This hotel is absolutely fantastic, starting from the very nice managers to the kind employees. We had the most incredible experience in our lives thanks to Belmond Safari. Food and the delicious wines also added value to the great stay we has. Also the game drives and helicopter tour was amazing. Thanks for everything Magda, Natie and Rock!

This safari lodge really is in the middle of nowhere - for us tourists the only way in or out is by way of a tiny (6 to 10 seater) prop-plane or, if you have the money, by private helicopter. There is a dirt road which serves the traditional village about a mile away with goods sent every week or... More
