The Khwai Community Area is a 180,000-hectare concession of the Okavango, it lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. There is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the Okavango Delta and the Khwai concession. The Khwai Community Area offers the same wildlife experience as Moremi Game Reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession, which allows lodges to offer walking safaris and night drives. The Khwai Community Area, formally a private hunting concession is now managed by the local community as a conservation and ecotourism project. Huge herds of elephants are often seen as they move between the mopane forests and the water systems. This area is also a great place to see the rare Roan and Sable antelope. Populations of lion, spotted hyena, leopard and the African wild dog are also present. The Khwai River is also famous for its variety of birds of prey, most notably the Bateleur Eagle which is seen in large numbers between August and November.
