“A special camp with an exceptional manager/guide”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Khwai Tented Camp is a really specially place to stay. It is not the most luxurious camp in the Delta - but that would be difficult as they have to relocate every 6 nights. It's a small intimate camp, with all the essentials, and a wonderful staff. Pilot the manager/guide is a real gem - he manages the camp, trains the staff and runs all the activities, including game drives, night drives and walks. He has a wonderful sense of humour and a tracking ability second to none. We watched and followed a leopard for over an hour on the first evening - with Pilot driving off road through the bush (over bushes etc), spotting with a light with one hand, driving with the other, with his head out of the vehicle following tracks at the same time - magic! I had 4 nights at the camp and wished I could stay longer. If your reason for visiting is to spend time watching/photographing wildlife you will not be disappointed.

We had an incredible time in this camp.
We stayed here fot 2 nights after staying in an other camp from African Bushcamps, called Linyanti bush camp.
This camp is more basic. Only 4 tents and smaller than the tents in Linyanti.
Lovely bucketshowers and good food.
Fantastic guide, called Pilot, took us around for two days and we loved it.
The staff tries everything to make you happy. Well we were happy from the first minute to the last one!!
The way to get there is by small plane which is of course an adventure itself.
