The KGH is located close to the Moremi north gate, but also close to the Khwai concession, borg of which have great Wildlife and nature. Inside the camp the accomodations are spacious and very comfortable. However, the best feature are the staff who are friendly, helpful an knowledgeable (Max is a great guide)! A big recommendation!

It was very hot in the hut during the day. The big fan they provide helps a lot. If you can stay at North Gate campsite instead - it will be much cooler at night as the clay hut keeps the heat for a long time even when it is already chilly outside. The place is within the village so expect some noise (late at night it was very quiet, though). The food was very nice and plentiful. Moremi North Gate is a five-minute drive away. Buy your permits in advance in Maun if you want to enter the park very early. We arrived at 5:30 (opening time in October) and there was nobody there to buy a permit until 7!!!

Super friendly staff and a very familial atmosphere. The guesthouse is situated outside of the surrounded national parks (Moremi / Savuti), so no park fees have to be paid on top. I haven’t booked an accommodation at the guesthouse as I was on a 4x4 camping trip. Due to the fact I cannot really say anything about the accommodation itself, just about the surroundings and the staff. I got stuck with my car at the guesthouse and they were really extraordinary helpful! Best place to have a broken car 🤷🏻‍♂️. As my satellite phone wasn’t working somehow, they organized everything with the repair shop of Bushlore in Maun. They took care of any kind of communication and as the technician arrived they helped him fixing my car. People in the bush help each other - an amazing experience for me! During the time all organization and time to repair my car, they organized as well that someone gave me a ride to the Mokoro boat station, so that I could do my Mokoro trip which was booked in advance. When I returned from my Mokoro trip, cold beverages were offered. I didn’t expect that much help, as I haven’t booked anything at the guesthouse but they were helping anyway. About the facilities which I‘ve seen I can see the public restroom is in a very good shape and completely clean. The reception and the selfservice restaurant area is clean und looks very cozy and comfortable. I spend a lot of time in this area during the time I was forced to wait for the technician. From all these points I can really state that I can recommend this guesthouse! It’s very rare to meet such helpful and friendly people, taking care of people even if they are not their customers!!

The location is really great. Khwai Guest House is located in Khwai Concession Area of the Okavango Delta and just a 2 min drive to the Moremi Game Reserve. By staying here you get breakfast and dinner included. If you wish to have lunch there, order in advance! They have 6 huts which feature mosquito nets, bathroom with toilette and shower. At night you can hear the roaming animals like hyeanas and elephants. Food is great! The activities are highly recommended. The game drives through Moremi and Khwai Concession area are fabulous. You will see lots of wildlife. Khwai Area is perfect for seeing leopards and lions. We even saw a serval in Moremi.

The bedrooms are rather small, separate toilet, separate shower (very good). Friendly staff, good food. With the ongoing drought the dust from the main road is a nuisance. And the traffic on the road has increased again. For self drivers a very good place to stop and spend some time to explore the khway river area, which is in my opinion a beautiful experience - better than savuti or moremi. Let's face it: the area is in big demand - and every year more tourist show up.
