The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season. The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession, which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives. The Khwai River is famous for its large population of predator birds, most notably the Bateleurs which gather on the outskirts of the river during August and November. As a result, this area is immensely popular with bird spotters.
