I just got back and look forward to visiting again. The accommodations at Khwai Tented Camp have been recently refurbished. They now include a large tent with separate flush toilet area and running hot/cold water in sinks and the shower. The tent has flaps that open for ventilation and a lovely porch that looks out onto the lagoon; still, it's...

The accomodatiion was poor and not as described in the brochure. The cuisine was poor - it was described as being on a river and actuall no boats have been from there as there is no navigable water. We would not recommend this as it certainly fell far short of the typical Btswana camps

Good day V563SQpeter, Thank you for taking the time to review Khwai Tented Camp, we appreciate your feedback as it helps improve our offering. I am sorry that you felt your accommodation was poor.

Came here with my 16 year old son in September. It was very hot. I would say that Khwai had the most primitive/ basic of all the accommodations of the 4 places we stayed in Botswana. They did recommend to shower/ cool off mid day, re-wet your damp towel and lay it over you to nap. It did help but...

the title says it all - what an amazing guide Gideon is, I have never known a guide like him great, dry sense of humour and how he finds the leopards he finds I will never know! I saw more leopards here than I have ever seen before. He drives through spaces to get you as close as possible. AMAZING!...

We spent 3 nights here in September as part of a safari experience. It is a fairly small camp which makes it friendly and the way it is set up helps the true safari camp experience - camp fires, toast and porridge warming on the fire pit for your early morning snack, having a beer or glass of wine round...
