Description

Relaxing and natural campsite with 10 spots directly on the border of a shallow river. We were surrounded by around 50 elephants at lunch time! Lots of herds came to drink and bathe.

There are basic ablutions, with donkey fired hot showers (pressure not that good) and flush toilets. No further facilities, but who needs these anyway?

Perfect for game drives in the area along the Khwai river. Lots of animals, loads of hippos, elephants, antilopes and even saw wild dogs.
2021 : 350 pulas pppn / 2 hours mokoro : 400 pulas pppn.

We loved this place! Despite the time of year and there not being many animals around, we enjoyed the peaceful view of the river from the camp, which was visited by impala. The birds were also incredible. Nice ablutions, which we chose to camp near to. The staff camped nearby but were very discreet.

Report Check-In

10 sites along a river connecting Mbudi and Khwai rivers. We had huge heards of elefants, hippos, hyenas, waterbucks around, heard lions. Campsite directly connected to western Khwai rivefront game area by a rivercrossing passable with a Fortuner. Nice mokoro trip, we saw elefants and buffalos.

Lovely campsite, unfortunately quite expensive(350pppn), but we had a great 3 nights there with plenty of game through the camp. Particularly elephant and hyena (neither an issue if you follow standard bush logic…), camp sites allocated on arrival. Many are reasonably far from ablutions (1 toilet and 1 shower - well kept though), so you may need to drive (if you don’t - PLEASE BURN YOUR TOILET PAPER - the jackal will dig it up!)
All camps seemed quite nice although I’d avoid the ones right near the ablutions as the staff camp is directly behind it and while they are not noisy as such, you will hear them at night as sound travels. Possible to collect water from the river, although I would only use it for washing.

Great place. Very wild. Staff are helpful and professional.

Cost 300pppn

We just had a lonely hippo in the pond and we didn’t see many animals on the Khwai River drive or inside the Moremi NP. Seems this was the consensus of everyone we spoke to. Time of year I guess.
