Intimate Bush Camp & Luxury Lodge
A perfect balance between adventure and luxury, the Khwai-Kalahari itinerary is the ideal way to experience the enormous diversity of Botswana.
Travel from the lush Khwai River, teeming with wildlife, through a wonderful scenic helicopter flight over the Okavango Delta towards the starkly beautiful, semi-desert Kalahari, home to the ancient Bushmen.
A luxury tented mobile safari in Khwai gives you the experience of the African bush like the explorers of yester-year.
The focus is blending into the environment with the camp geared towards an eco-friendly use of the natural environment. Wildlife sightings are excellent with the wildlife being more comfortable around the smaller scale of a mobile tented camp.
The intimate bush camp allows you to immerse yourself in the African bush, uninterrupted by the distractions of the modern world.
