Safari Experience

Khwai Tented Camp provides a view of the Old Untouched Africa in this prolific and sought after wildlife area, giving guests the opportunity to encounter predator species up close and personal, as well as offering guests varied activities.

Besides the day-time drives which can feature Africa’s big attractions – lion, cheetah, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and giraffe – guests at Khwai Tented Camp are able to explore nature after sunset with a night drive.

This activity, along with the guided walking safaris, is not usually permitted in the National Parks or Game reserves, and allows guests to get an up close and personal experience with some of Africa’s nocturnal and/or more elusive animals.

The area is well preserved by the community who benefit from the Tourism Dollar and the wildlife and birdlife in this area thrives.

There are no permanent structures; everything can be removed to leave the wilderness exactly as we found it, minimizing our impact on the environment.
