Okavango Khwai Concession
, also known as NG18, is a private safari area located to the north-east of the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana.

This concession covers an enormous 2100 square kilometres and is restricted to just 68 guests in four small camps, providing around 30 square kilometres per person, which is a very low visitor density.

The concession encompasses most of the land between the northwest corner of the Okavango Delta, Moremi Game Reserve, Chobe National Park and the Linyanti Waterfront. It is largely comprised of dry mopane woodland, but has substantial frontage onto the Khwai River only on its southern boundary.

The Khwai River is a modest but very important watercourse which flows out from the northeast corner of the Okavango Delta into the surrounding dry mopane forests to terminate in a modest area of marches a little further to the east. During the Jun/Oct dry season the river acts as a magnet for wildlife, providing excellent opportunities for safari, with an especially good reputation for for lions, leopards and elephants.


The area contains four camp options, all of which are incredibly good value for money ...

Sable Alley ... is a high quality and very comfortable camp in a very attractive setting close to the river and offering the full range of Okavango Delta experiences.

Hyena Pan ... is a simpler camp set way out in the dry mopane forest to the north and offering an intimate and atmospheric waterhole experience, particularly strong for elephants.

Khwai Skybeds ... is a rare and unusual experience, similarly located around a remote waterhole in the mopane woodland, a single night sleepout experience with beds raised up high on platforms under the stars.

Tau Camp ... is a relatively small and simple camp which is offered to private groups of up to 8 guests, providing a very intimate safari experience.


Okavango Khwai River is most commonly combined with other Okavango Delta areas, as well as camps in the Linyanti Waterfront, Makgadikgadi and Central Kalahari. It can also be combined with locations in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. Connections to other countries are possible but can be relatively arduous.
