This is a fantastic campsite. We spent 3 nights at 3 different pitches. The reason for this was our first pitch MK5 was stuck in the middle with the access road around it. Lots of dust from people driving around rather too fast. The manager, Willie, was very helpful and second night we had MK1 which was better and the last night MK6 which was the best. If I stay at Khwai again I would make sure we had a pitch on the river side as these were 100% better.
The ablutions were clean and the water hot. There was a choice of solar powered ablutions or some smaller ones where the water is heated by gas. We needed some extra wood and one of the staff brought a wheel barrow full from the village for us. All the staff were very helpful.
The campsite is very wild, amazing! Lions and Hyena passing through during the night. You need to keep aware of whats going on. Elephant trapping me in the tent while another trapped hubby in the ablutions, very exciting.
While we were there a pack of wild dogs were hunting right through the camp and we had an encounter with them early one morning as we left camp. 30+ Impala burst out of the bush, jumping around and over our land rover with the dogs in hot pursuit. All just for us. Everyone else was still getting up. We were so lucky.
All our bookings were done by McKenzie 4x4 in Maun. Excellent service.
