Mogotlho, Khwai River
Mogotlho Safari Lodge emanates the essence of Africa and delivers an intimate safari experience in the heart of Botswana. This safari pearl, bordered by the Chobe National Park and Moremi Game Reserve, is a choice for the conscious safari enthusiast. The luxury tented camp is built off-grid, seamlessly blending into African nature on the banks of the Khwai River. Guests can immerse themselves into an African safari experience guided and hosted by Mogotlho’s passionate team made up of residents from nearby villages.
Each of the 13 spacious and luxurious tents, has been intimately placed to ensure unspoiled panoramic views of the African bush, with a touch of class and plenty of privacy. With each tent having a unique view of the river, a life source and watering hole for wildlife, you will have ample opportunity to observe our African wildlife and ever-changing landscape from the privacy of your balcony.
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.
