Belmond Khwai River Lodge Review
As you sit on the wooden deck jutting out over the clear delta waters, munching 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. The location, 8 km (5 mi) northwest of the north gate of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, means that you will see lots of game, not only on your drives but also from the lodge itself. The excitement of seeing a hippo or elephant stroll past the viewing deck outside your deluxe tent is not something you'll easily forget. The lodge is also the stuff of bird-watchers' dreams.
