Moremi Game Reserve, the setting for Khwai River Lodge, is quite simply one of the most beautiful places I have been to in a long time. Overlooking floodplains and forest, it's a largely untouched wilderness and quite magical. The Lodge itself blends in beautifully with the surroundings: spacious luxury tents are housed on raised platforms, allowing for breathtaking views, while a traditional African thatch roof offers shade. The private decks are also ideal for viewing wildlife, of which there is abundance.
The tents are wonderfully luxurious, and the Lodge has all the modern conveniences I required, but of-course the real enchantment of the place lies in the wonderful hospitality and incredible sights and sounds. Everywhere I looked was picture perfect, and yet no photograph could possibly do justice to the beauty of the place. Game drives and candlelit dinners out on the deck only added to the magic. Oh so worth it!
