Overview

Pangolin Khwai Camp is a built-for-purpose lodge that seeks to improve your skills and elevate your enjoyment of wildlife photography. Lying in the private Khwai Reserve on the edge of the Okavango Delta and bordering the famous Moremi Game Reserve, Pangolin Khwai Camp certainly has the right location, giving you access to a magical landscape of stunning scenery and teeming wildlife.

Khwai’s wetlands and rivers are home to hippos and crocodiles, its woodlands hide shy sable antelope and leopard while lions and cheetahs patrol the open floodplains for prey. The birdlife is amazing and the area has a reputation for rarities like wild dogs, serval cats, honey badgers and of course the kgaga - the local name for the ever-elusive pangolin. This scaled creature can roll itself up into a protective and impenetrable ball when approached by predators, and seeing one will be highlight of any safari.

Because Pangolin Khwai Camp has a private setting, your guide is allowed to drive off-road for close-up sightings as well as conduct night drives, both of which make for more detailed and atmospheric images. Guided walks and canoe trips (when water levels allow) add to the ways you can experience and photograph the landscape. On mekoro trips, look out for aquatic birds like jacana, tiny painted reed frogs, elephants wading in the water and gorgeous water lilies.

Built by photographers for photographers, the camp is sensible about what is needed. There is the usual comfort and convenience – convivial camp fires, en suite tented accommodation and suppers under starlight – but a quality SLR camera, lens and SD cards are also provided, and there is a photographic expert on hand for advice and instruction. You will find a dedicated area for photo editing and plenty of recharging points. The game-viewing vehicles are well-suited for the task – taking a maximum of four guests, they have camera mounts built into the arm rests and offer every passenger a window seat.

Rooms

En-Suite Tent

There are only five suites on offer at Pangolin Khwai Camp, each a large, walk-in Meru tent. Raised on wooden platforms, the tents can be made up with a double bed or twins and you have the convenience of an adjoining private bathroom with a toilet and shower. The tents have electricity supply for bedside lights and battery recharging plus hot running water, powered by solar energy.

There is plenty of storage space for bags and equipment inside; step outside and you find a small private deck with beautiful views over the floodplains in front of the camp, often complete with browsing elephants and antelope.

Facilities

Lying under mature trees and overlooking huge open floodplains, Pangolin Khwai Camp is centred on its main building, which consists of an open-plan dining room and lounge complete with a dedicated area for photo editing, workshops and presentations. A short set of steps takes you to the sunken fire pit where there are comfortable chairs with easy access to a well-stocked bar.

Driven by solar energy, this eco-camp has plenty of power to recharge batteries and devices, as well as a complimentary laundry service.

Dining

Your day begins with an early wake-up call, accompanied by your choice of tea or coffee with homemade biscuits. Depending on the season, you may have breakfast before or after your morning game drive, after which there is lunch and an afternoon high tea to look forward to. A 3-course supper ends the day, served, like all meals, at a long communal table in the main dining area or outside – either way your view will be that of the unfettered wilderness. Food is fresh and wholesome, using as much local produce as possible.
