Due to the varying habitats found throughout Khwai, from riverine woodland to open savannah, from mopane scrub to leadwood thickets, there is an immense diversity of flora and fauna to be found here.
The dry season of July to October brings many elephants down to the river, often numbering in the hundreds, whilst buffalo are often found almost always being tracked by the many lions in the area. Due to the large numbers of impala found in Khwai, the leopard and wild dog populations is excellent, and rarely does a safari in the area not encounter at least one of theses on a game-drive. Occasionally there are roan and sable antelope that come down through the mopane woodland towards the river, for a drink.
Khwai is an area that always conjures something up for anyone who visits, and being here on safari, with the ability to operate your own timetable with your private guide either by vehicle, day or night, or on foot, will give you an experience you will never forget.
