At the beginning of April, we spent two nights at Khwai camp, the second stop on our Botswana fly-in safari. The camp infrastructure was a little more basic than the previous camp: bucket showers -but delivered within minutes after the request was made- and the tents were not very spacious but they had electricity and the bathroom had a sink with running (cold) water and a flush commode. For us it was sufficiently comfortable for a tented camp. The common area was rustic but nicely furnished and decorated and included an open dining and sitting area and a deck with fire pit, all with a beautiful view on the marshy surroundings. We arrived after a period of abundant rain, so everything was green and lush, the downside was that game viewing was more difficult because of the tall vegetation and driving the dirt roads was difficult at times. We still saw lots of animals on extended game drives thanks to our dedicated guides. Max was a knowledgeable guide and did a great job navigating the muddy dirt roads and river crossings. Meals were good, and like a previous reviewer stated, we also particularly enjoyed the lunches and tea times. What stuck out and made this the most enjoyable experience of our trip were the personal atmosphere and the exceptional friendliness of the entire staff.
