  • Khwai Concession is 180 000 ha of prime and scenic wilderness located between Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, 

  • The Khwai Concession is community-run and all proceeds go towards the community and their eco-tourism initiatives for community upliftment and projects.

  • It is located on the north eastern edge of Moremi and is one of the most scenic areas of northern Botswana with prolific wildlife.  

  • Regular sightings of leopard, wild dogs, hyenas and lions. 

  • The Khwai River flows through the concession and spreads out into marshy areas and channels with good populations of elephants, hippos, crocodiles, waterbuck and lechwe

  • The mopane woodlands away from the river host extensive populations of plains game – zebras, impala, giraffe, buffalo – and many elephants.

  • The Khwai Concession is a good area to see Roan and sable antelope, which are relatively rare.

  • The concession also boasts an incredible range of bird species including Verreaux's eagle owl, Senegal coucals and long-toed lapwings.

  • Because Khwai is outside the national parks, off-road driving, bush walks and night time game drive activities are permitted.

  • The best time to go is usually the dry season – July to October, when the waters of the Okavango Delta arrive from the west via the Khwai River and attract thousands of animals from Chobe National Park.  

  • Wildlife sightings can be crowded during the prime safari season of July to September, but there are some private concessions within Khwai with restricted access.

By road
A 4 hour drive from the northern Park entrance of Chobe National Park on a good gravel road that is passable in 2WD. From Maun the first 100 km is tar but then the road is sandy and deteriorated. Taking your own fuel is a must. A 4WD vehicle is essential on other routes as well. 

By air
Air transfers are regularly made from Maun and vehicles from private camps do the ground transfers.
