Let's Safari Together

Animal magic meets old-world indulgence

Between fig trees and vibrant floodplains, be ideally positioned to see the big game of Moremi Game Reserve

The inviting tented rooms at Khwai River Lodge feature panoramic private decks. They’re the perfect theatre from which to enjoy the drama of the wild. After a day spent in the savannah, unwind in the tranquil pool or share stories by the fire. Want a massage on your private deck? All you have to do is ask.

    Our indulgent tented rooms are built for game spotting. Spy wildebeest from the elevated private deck, or swing in a hammock as zebra and elephants saunter past. Inside, a netted four-poster bed, elegant bathroom, air conditioning and minibar all provide welcome refreshment after a day’s pursuits.

    For a more secluded experience, check in to the private suite. The heated splash pool is a sublime spot to watch an African sunset.

      The History

      Khwai River Lodge holds a special place in Botswana’s history. Opened in 1971 by Harry Selby, it was one of the first lodges to promote safaris with a conservation ethos. Its proximity to the Delta floodplains also led Selby to build the ‘bridge over the river Khwai’. Today this serves as the famous North Gate entrance into the Reserve
