Open Landcruisers are used for simply unforgettable morning and afternoon game drives. This area of Botswana is known for its big cat predator population, as well as large herds of elephant and buffalo. Belmond Khwai River Lodge is located on a private concession which means that vehicles can drive off-road and after sunset, in search of Moremi’s nocturnal creatures. Due to its prime location, wildlife can also often be seen from the lodge. Alternatively, get closer to nature on a walking safari led by experienced guides. Explore the rugged landscape, and learn the art of tracking along the way. You will return with your senses enhanced after learning about the intricacies of the biodiversity of the Okavango Delta and its various habitats. The private hide is where to head between game activities. With elevated views overlooking the Khwai River, it's a peaceful spot to look for Botswana's colourful bird species - including malachite kingfishers and open-billed storks.
