What an amazing time!
Fantastic welcome in a charming, colonial style of lodge. Due to be rebuilt provided a new lease is granted. I do hope so, as the staff and guides were really wonderful, and welcoming. I have never seen so many hippos and returning home, I miss the 'happy hippo' noises from the nearby river. The concession offered more game viewing opportunities than the nearby Moremi Game Reserve, but this might be a seasonal thing. Most unforgettable were the lions and most exciting of all - a close and fairly long encounter with a beautiful female leopard and her kill.....an amazing experience! Thank you so much for a wonderful time!
Give me more , Give me more
What an amazing experience . Great Guide , Staff and wonderful accommodation. Excellent food . The Safari was truly memorable . Off piste and close as you can get to mother nature . You may drive for 1 or 2 hours without seeing any of the big 5 and then suddenly you see a Leopard or Rhino . So pleased we experience all 3 Belmond lodges as each one which had a different experience .
The best Belmond property I’ve been to
After several safaris to Africa and many stays at Belmond properties throughout Europe and the world, i can honestly say that this one is by far the best, in terms of service, setting, luxury and safari outings. The staff is outstanding, the setting divine, and the tents beyond luxurious. Attie and her husband Vasco who manage the property go out of their way to meet your every wish and desire. My favorite hotel stay of the year. I wish all Belmond properties were as flawless as this one. Bravo and Thank you!

An amazing and unforgettable stay
My wife and three teenage daughters just had one of the greatest travel experiences imaginable at Khwai River. The staff is A++++, starting with Attie, the manager and the entire service staff. Our guide, Vasco, was nothing short of spectacular - unbelievable knowledgeable, capable and adventurous, demonstrating a true expertise and care for the beautiful surroundings and their inhabitants. We got the sense from other guests that their guides were similarly wonderful. Almost every meal was beautifully prepared, healthy and delicious. The rooms were beautifully decorated in a simple yet elegant style appropriate for the beautiful location, though the bathrooms could probably use a bit of an upgrade. Khwai River Lodge was a very special place in every way and we will never forget our stay there. Gratefully, we were able to tune out some of the recent reviews we saw on trip advisor. The criticisms are completely unfounded and we hope this will offset any concerns that others considering a visit to this amazing lodge and area might have.
