Our Support of the Wild Entrust Africa Conservation Project

We’ve joined forces with Wild Entrust Africa to help mitigate the lethal conflict between predators and people in Northern Botswana. With the help of our partnership, six camera traps will assist the project’s ground-breaking scent-mark research, which keeps predators away from livestock and safely inside protected wildlife areas.

Our guests can visit the Wild Dog Research camp and listen to a Botswana Predator Conservation Programme researcher talk about their fascinating and invaluable work.

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
