Khwai Tented Camp

About Khwai Tented Camp, okavango delta

Set in the Khwai Community Concession, Khwai Tented Camp gives you the perfect combination of wilderness, wildlife and luxury. This game-rich area is located across the border from the Moremi Game Reserve near the Khwai River, the sole water-source for miles and a prime location for thirsty wild animals.

This is an excellent camp for families, small groups or even solo travellers, with just 12 beds for guests. Being on a community-run reserve, a percentage of tourism fees go directly to help the local people and projects, and as you are outside of the main reserve you can explore via night drives, day drives, and walking activities.

This is a great lodge for helping the local community.
