About Kwhai River Lodge, A Belmond Safari, Botswana
Belmond Khwai River Lodge is set on the banks of the Khwai River, the only permanent source of water in the area. The Khwai River is regularly frequented by herds of elephant and pods of hippopotami. Africa's first wildlife area set aside by tribal people rather than outsiders, the Moremi Reserve has barely changed since life began. Fifteen luxury thatched tents are discreetly air-conditioned. Large wooden decks provide a great place to enjoy the drama of the wild or the delights of a private dinner.
Birdlife can be viewed in abundance with exceptional sightings of wildfowl and raptors. At the spectacular observation deck overlooking the Khwai River and beyond into the Moremi Game Reserve, there is a high powered telescope, perfect for seeing game on the floodplain. Khwai's Private Suite benefits from a private vehicle, guide, heated splash pool and outdoor bathroom with double shower and Victorian copper-framed bath. Internet access and satellite TV located discreetly away from the main lounge and dining areas.
