Situated within a majestic cathedral of mopane trees, Hyena Pan overlooks a watering hole deep within the Khwai Private Reserve, a 200 000 hectare conservancy on the northern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. Hyena Pan is a rustic but comfortable camp with a friendly atmosphere offering an affordable safari experience. Best experienced in the dry season when the waterhole attracts huge numbers of elephants and other animals. The photo hide is a great experience.
The focus here is on land activities and the concession is explored on morning and afternoon game drives. Other full day drives explore the banks of the Khwai River with walking safaris allowing guests to get close to nature. The camp has access to the ground level hide which offers spectacular photographic opportunities- often a highlight for many guests to Hyena Pan.
Hyena Pan camp has eight simple comfortable tents which are en suite with showers powered by gas boilers. The tents are simply decorated, splashes of colour from local beads and artefacts add a welcoming atmosphere. Cameras and batteries can be charged through each tent’s international adapter, powered by solar panels. There is no phone or wi-fi signal in camp.
The main guest area overlooks the waterhole and comprises a spacious dining deck as well as comfortable seating areas, a sun deck, and pool deck with a rim-flow splash pool. The open air boma with camp fire provides excellent opportunities to view game at night. The camp also has a small reference library.
The Khwai Concession and, more particularly, the Khwai Private Reserve provides an incredible combination of space, exclusivity and fantastic wildlife encounters. The concession borders both the world famous Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park with Hyena Pan itself only 12 kilometres north of the Khwai River. Common species include elephant, buffalo, general plains game as well as wild dog, lion and leopard. This conservancy is operated in partnership with local families.
