Activities at Belmond Khwai River Lodge

The day at Belmond Khwai River Lodge starts and finishes with game drives, to make the most of the cooler hours when both animals and people are more active. First time safari-goers will be delighted by the chance to see all of the Big Five, while twitchers will be well rewarded by the extraordinary array of bird-watching. To see the bush up close, there are walking safaris, and for those who are interested in the local culture, there is the chance to visit a nearby local village.
