Your Experience

Sunrise and sunset offer safari explorations of our private concession in a classic style safari vehicle. For a experience truly connected to nature, we invite you to embark on a walking safari – following in the footsteps of our experienced professional guides. One may even take to the Khwai River itself in a traditional Botswana Mokoro – floating beside the African wild wonders. This is especially inviting if you are a keen birder – the riverine habitat is a haven for birds.

Simply relaxing by the pool or observing the river and its wildlife from the deck is accepting our invitation for relaxation. To fulfil your cultural curiosity and understanding, a village experience may be arranged – educating guests about local life, human-wildlife co-existence as well as the community projects linked to the lodge. With the vision to pioneer new ways of developing tourism, conservation and sustainable community upliftment, such engagement from guests is an important part of our conscious ethos.

Reconnect, relax and rejuvenate at our eco-lodge nestled beside the Khwai – returning to our roots intertwined with nature.
