What makes Khwai Bush Camp so appealing is its location in the private Tsaro Concession along the banks of the Khwai River, so it enjoys total exclusivity in one of northern Botswana’s most sought after wilderness destinations. From its spot under the ancient leadwood trees and sycamore figs, the central dining, lounge, and boma area twinkles happily and the calls of insects, frogs, and birds fill the air. There are not many excellent safari options in the area accommodating families, but Khwai Bush Camp has two suites dedicated to parents travelling with kids, and there is no minimum age limit.
The permanent presence of water in the Khwai River means that Khwai Bush Camp has front row seats to one of the most popular wildlife spots all year round. The river nourishes an abundance of wildlife during the dry season when all other temporary waterholes dry up, so June, July, and August are sure to be full of wildlife encounters. During the rainy season the migratory birds flock to Khwai to replenish with the feast of food and water available and this is generally the quietest travel season (January to March), so those looking for a totally exclusive safari experience should brave the heat and humidity to see Khwai at its most bountiful. Mokoro excursions are offered when the water levels are high enough, and game drives, night drives, and bush walks are offered all year round. Children are not able to join the walking safaris, but can go on a mini-nature walk with a qualified guide.
