  • About

The community-run Khwai Conservancy in the heart of the Okavango Delta is one of the most beautiful areas of Botswana. Home to 400 people, the 1,800-square-kilometre patchwork of grass plains, woodland forests, lagoons and marsh boasts a staggering array of wildlife from the Big Five to rarer species such as wild dog and sitatunga.

In the middle of all this biodiversity is Khwai Leadwood. Made up of just six comfortable tents on raised decks perched above a lagoon, the camp accommodates 12 people at a time. There are no permanent structures, and everything is run by solar power to minimise any impact on the environment. That’s not to say the facilities here are basic; the lounge tent has leather sofas, gorgeous African prints and objects of art. There’s a swimming pool overlooking the river, the meals are excellent, and they serve an excellent gin and tonic at the bar.

The highlight of your stay is sure to be the safari drives. Led by experienced local guides who know the region and its wildlife like the back of their hand, on a wildlife-watching drive, you might see lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe. Meanwhile, the night safaris offer the chance to see more elusive, nocturnal animals.
