Luxury Holidays At Khwai River Lodge, A Belmond Safari, Botswana

A worthy addition to any luxury Botswana safari, Khwai River Lodge, A Belmond Safari, Botswana boasts a perfect location under the shade of fig trees and overlooking the game-rich floodplains of the Moremi Game Reserve. Animals can move freely between the reserve and the lodge, so it’s not uncommon to see elephant, zebra and antelope from the luxury tented rooms or the lodge's twenty-metre swimming pool. Located on a private concession, game drives can be conducted at night, as well as more traditional early morning and afternoon safaris. Perfect for a little post-safari relaxation, a spa offers pampering massages and manicures using natural products sourced from the African bush. At night, after a dinner in Mothupi’s lantern-lit boma, look up to the night sky with spellbinding stargazing opportunities.

Property Highlights:expand_more

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.

Hotel Experiences

Share stories around the campfire as you gather with your fellow guests in the boma. A local choir will sing their traditional songs, before the tantalising tastes of a variety of African dishes are served beneath the sky. You can also experience the wonders of the night sky through the lodge's telescope, learning more about the constellations of the southern hemisphere and how the bushmen have used the stars to navigate.


Khwai River Lodge is an ideal destination for a romantic safari or honeymoon. The secluded Private Suite is the perfect accommodation with its own rim-flow pool overlooking the flood plains. Experience the romance of an African sunset, before an intimate dinner on the private deck.

Spa & Wellness

After enjoying the wealth of wonderful activities available at Khwai River Lodge, the spa offers some well-deserved pampering. Using African botanicals, spa treatments can also be enjoyed on the deck or in the privacy of your room. Intriguing treatments include African potato manicures and soul of Africa massages.
