Fodor's Review

As you sit on the wooden deck jutting out over the narrow Khwai river, eating brunch or chilling out, you may just forget the outside world. Floating water lilies, tiny bejeweled kingfishers dipping and swooping in front of you, and the sounds of gently lapping water relax even the most driven work junkie. Bigger than some of the other safari lodges and one of the oldest, Khwai is renowned for its personal attention and friendly service. Alhtough the lodge is just a stone's throw (across the river) from Moremi, most of your activites will be in the predator-rich Khwai Community Concession—lion, leopard, wild dog, and spotted hyena are regularly seen. You can also spot plenty of wildlife from the lodge itself and the excitement of seeing a hippo or elephant stroll past the viewing deck outside your deluxe tent is not something you'll easily forget.
