The camp is set under a canopy of aged indigenous leadwood and fig trees, overlooking the Kwai River Floodplain. Hippo, Elephant and other big game animals can be seen from the lodge and grounds.

Activities / Game Drives:
The Khwai River is part of the Okavango Delta's system. But the lodge lies at the point where the river narrows to a stream and disappears into the sand and here you find Moremi, one of Africa's most majestic game reserves. Moremi roars with Botswana's largest, grandest, fastest, sleekest and most beautiful game.
Waterbuck, crocodile and hippo abound. Vast herds of antelope and zebra graze contentedly on the coarse grass. And where the antelope feed, the predators are not too far off: lion, leopard and cheetah, hyena and wild dog.
Morning and afternoon game drives or guided walks, after dark spotlight game drives, bird watching, - game - flights on request.
