Overview of Khwai Leadwood

Khwai Leadwood is a luxury safari camp that sits on the banks of the pristine Khwai River in the community-run Khwai Concession of Moremi Game Reserve. Game drives, walking safaris and mokoro (traditional canoe) safaris are just a few of the activities guests can enjoy in this renowned safari region. Visitors can look forward to spotting elephants drinking from the river, giraffe grazing on tall trees and lions on the hunt on night drives.

Exploring the African wilderness can be tiring work, but there’s no better place to unwind from it all than at Khwai Leadwood. When not out on game drives, guests can relax with a dip in the pool or curl up with a good book in the reading area. And, of course, the luxury tents have all the creature comforts you need, including a hammock on the private deck that’s perfect for afternoon naps.

If you’re seeking a classic safari experience that allows you to get in touch with nature while still offering the comfort and style you’d expect from a luxury getaway, look no further than Khwai Leadwood.
