KHWAI LEADWOOD LODGE
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.
Hyena Pan is situated in a 200 000 hectare private conservancy, Khwai Private Reserve. It falls within the Okavango Delta World Heritage Site, and borders Moremi Game Reserve, the Khwai River and Chobe National Park.
Overlooking the Hyena Pan, is in a forest of Cathedral Mopane just 12km north of the Khwai River, the theatre of animals passing through will amaze and delight you, all visible from a choice of viewpoints in camp. With one of the few permanent water holes in this area thanks to solar powered boreholes, and also its location as an elephant route between Savuti in the Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta, we see movement of elephant through the area constantly.
