African Bush Camps - Khwai Leadwood

Notice how adventure can meet serenity at this beautiful bush camp in Botswana

Nestled close to the edge of the Khwai River, the beautiful Khwai Leadwood sits calmly beneath a canopy of bush trees. With the river being all that separates this luxurious camp from the iconic Moremi Game Reserve, live out your safari fantasy by watching hippos and elephants maneuver the water as you sip your morning coffee. 

 

An exceptional experience for the most travelled safari veterans and children alike, Khwai Leadwood is the ideal destination for families, couples and solo travellers looking for a holistically African adventure. With six elegantly styled tents and one family unit, the camp bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and feeling like you’re in the great outdoors. 

 

Part of the African Bush Camps collective, Khwai Leadwood is set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession and was founded upon ABC’s values of “sharing and conserving Africa together”.
