African Bush Camps opens new Khwai Leadwood Camp
Leadwood Camp is the newest camp as an addition to African Bush Camps portfolio, located on the edge of the Khwai River, one of the permanent channels of the mighty Okavango Delta. With our first international guests welcomed this week, we are very excited to share that all guests staying at Leadwood for at least 3 nights will have the opportunity for a 30-minute scenic helicopter flight over the Delta, taking in a wet wonderland and the myriad of waterways that make up this natural phenomenon. Khwai Leadwood is the newest, and 16th, member of the African Bush Camps collection of properties.
Set within the Okavango Delta’s community-run Khwai Concession, this beautiful camp is tucked under the trees on the edge of the Khwai River. This river is all that separates the iconic Moremi Game Reserve and the concession, with hippos, elephants and even lions crossing over from time to time. Watching these animals manoeuvre through the water is an exceptional experience for even the most travelled safari veterans.
The elegantly designed camp hosts six standard tents and one family unit, keeping in line with the intimate and exclusive wilderness experience. The new camp effortlessly bridges the gap between luxury accommodation and feeling like you’re in the great African outdoors. Woven baskets and beaded décor, along with modern elements, create an authentic contemporary African style.
During the day, guests can enjoy game drives, walking safaris and mokoro safaris (water levels permitting) on the search for Africa’s big attractions including lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe. An additional virtue of this area is that guests can head off on night drives and get an up-close and personal experience with some of Africa’s nocturnal and more elusive animals.
Khwai’s biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the plentiful and extraordinary wildlife – you’ll never be bored here! Adventure and relaxation are on offer as guests live out their ultimate safari experience – from setting off on a morning walking safari to enjoying a gin and tonic overlooking the Khwai River.
