Intimate Bush Camp & Luxury Lodge

Intimate Bush Camp & Luxury Lodge

A perfect balance between adventure and luxury, the Khwai-Kalahari Journey is the ideal way to experience the enormous diversity of Botswana.

Khwai Camp Experience the African Bush Like the Explorers of Bygone Days

The focus of this mobile safaris 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.

The Lodge An Oasis in the Kalahari
