Overview: Khwai River Lodge

Sink into time-honoured indulgence as you overlook the vibrant floodplains and dramatic big game of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve.

Moremi Reserve is situated at the heart of the Okavango Delta and was the first wildlife area to be set aside by tribal people rather than colonial powers.

Belmond Khwai River Lodge is home to luxury rooms seated on raised wooden platforms with traditional African thatch roof. Private decks with easy chairs and hammocks provide panoramic views.

Inside you’ll find a netted four-poster bed, an elegant bathroom, a stocked mini bar and discreet air conditioning.

Tucked away from the main rooms, our private suite offers a more secluded, romantic experience. The large deck includes a heated splash pool with full views of the reserve. An open-air bathroom, complete with double showers and copper-framed Victorian bath, brings you closer to nature.


Belmond Khwai River Lodge is located on a private concession nestled on the edge of the leadwood and fig tree forest of the Khwai River floodplains, bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve which allows free movement of animals within the Delta according to seasonal migrations.

Khwai River floodplains are renowned for its large concentration of mammals and is a year-round destination for wildlife. Enjoy the option of safaris in either the Moremi Wildlife Reserve or the private concession where guided safari walks and evening safaris are also offered.

Belmond owns and operates three luxury safari lodges in Botswana each situated in a unique location and eco-system, which gives guests the opportunity to experience a variety of safari experiences within one complete itinerary.
