Situated just outside the Moremi Game Reserve, Khwai River Lodge is in an idyllic location right on the river in the north-eastern reaches of the Okavango Delta. Accessed by light aircraft from Maun, guests are met by 4-wheel drives and transported the short distance from the dirt airstrip to Khwai River Lodge. There you are warmly welcomed by traditional African...

One of the biggest surprises was the quality of the food at our safari lodges. Absolutely outstanding. Fabulous guides and lovely rooms that I can't really believe were "tents." Our trip exceeded our wildest dreams. I do think we were overstimulated at times from all the wildlife as pointed out by our marvelous guides. The guides (including Moses) are so...

While in Botwana, we stayed several places(August 8-18 2015) Belmond was our favorite. Very nice tent cabins with porches where we could sit or lie in hammock and watch animals at the river. The staff was wonderful, the food was very good, and the game drives were outstanding.

The whole experience was great, the setting awesome, the food outstanding, the service exceptional, the game drives exceeding expectations, the villa magical. The staff looked after all my needs. Sella is an excellent guide, thanks for finding the leopards in the tree with hyena and lions around the tree looking on. And the wild dogs feeding and the grumpy elephant...

Khwai River Lodge is a wonderful destination, from the moment we arrived the staff made us so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was the finest 'camping' that we have ever experienced, and the food was all delicious. Moses our guide taught us all so much about Botswana wildlife, and was also great company. We are still...

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...

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....
