Blue and white water lilies cover the lagoons amid a landscape of sweeping grasslands, floodplains and riparian forest. The Khwai Concession is situated on the fertile northeastern fringes of the Okavango Delta and is considered a prime safari destination. You’ll see huge herds of migrating elephants enjoying the Mopane woodlands of the park’s interior. Large predators including lions, African wild dogs and spotted hyena are here too—and you may even spot a leopard. Relatively rare Roan and Sable antelope reside within the Khwai Concession. And, there’s also an impressive array of birdlife.
With no fences between the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park and Khwai, animals are free to roam in search of food and water. Animals migrating from the Linyanti concession find their first water source along the banks of the
Khwai River yielding ample wildlife viewing possibilities.
The Khwai Concession represents eco-tourism at its best. It is community-run with all proceeds from tourism going back into the Khwai Village for community upliftment and eco-tourism initiatives.
