Khwai Leadwood

Nestled beneath towering motswere trees overlooking the Khwai River, Khwai Leadwood offers an intimate, exclusive experience. With just seven tented suites scattered along the river bank, it’s easy to feel like you’ve got the whole place to yourself. Bordering the wildlife-rich Moremi Game Reserve, top-notch game viewing is the order of the day. (You might even catch a glimpse of some cheetah on the floodplains, if you’re lucky.) Head off on a night drive in search of nocturnal Okavango or explore it on foot on a walking safari at first light for a whole new perspective.

The Khwai Leadwood Experience

The location of the lodge is in the community run section of the Khwai concession, with only a river separating it from the mighty Moremi Game Reserve. Among the extraordinary experiences on offer is watching wildlife such as elephant, hippo and even lion, cross the river. The lodge is luxurious but manages to retain the feel of an authentic bush camp.

Stuff we love

Life in the trees

  • Being made to feel truly at home by the proud Khwai community who live and work here.
  • Watching elephants – even the smallest of them – crossing the river at sunset.
  • Waking up to spectacular views over the Khwai river and the plains beyond
