Day 3 - 4: Moremi Wildlife Reserve

After a peaceful morning sleep-in or a last morning activity at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge followed by a delicious breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Belmond Khwai River Lodge where animal magic meets old-world indulgence.
Track big game in morning and afternoon game drives by open 4×4 safari vehicle in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, renowned for frequent sightings of lion, leopard & cheetah, as well as wild dogs, whose numbers are so rapidly dwindling in other areas. Other games seen in the area are hyena, hippo and the full range of antelope, large and small, including the red lechwe.
Get closer to the wildlife than ever before on a Khwai Riverwalk with one of the camp’s experienced guides. Embrace the spirit of adventure as you trek through the rugged landscape, spotting animal tracks, curious insects, rare plant life and countless other amazing sights.
Game viewing is at its best in the dry season between July and October and for the keen ornithologist, birding can be very rewarding, especially between November to April. Bird lovers can conceal themselves in the camp’s private hide which enjoys elevated views across the Khwai River and is the perfect spot to observe the region’s rich variety of birds, including malachite kingfishers and open-billed storks.

A cultural visit to the local Khwai village can be arranged. Accompany by your guide and a local villager, take a stroll around the small village and chat with the locals – get a feel for their culture and their way of life.
Star gazing is another activity offered at the camp. Be captivated by the treasures of the boundless night sky. Using a telescope, focus on constellations that northern hemisphere visitors may never have seen before, such as the Southern Cross. You will also discover how Bushmen used the stars to locate the true south.
After a day spent in the savannah, unwind in the tranquil pool or share stories by the fire. For those wishing to enjoy further pampering, the lodge has a ‘Naturally Wild’ gym and spa facility. Guests can enjoy indulgent massages and body wraps in the spa or in the privacy of their tent.
