Hyena Pan

Situated on the 200 000 hectare Khwai Private Reserve within a cathedral of mopane trees and overlooking a natural pan

Situated within a majestic cathedral of mopane trees, Hyena Pan overlooks a natural watering hole deep within the Khwai Private Reserve, a 200 000 hectare conservancy on the northern border of the Moremi Game Reserve. This conservancy is operated in partnership with local families.

The camps eight tents offer simple comfort and are en suite with showers powered by gas boilers. 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.

The focus here is on land activities and the concession is explored by morning and afternoon game drives. Other 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 at Khwai Skybeds as well as the raised platforms.

Khwai Skybeds are a unique concept providing an excellent way to experience the African bush from four meter high semi-thatched hides, allowing guests the opportunity to sleep under the stars with just a mosquito net separating them from the wild.

Activities include both morning and afternoon game drives which include sun-downers and game walks. Species frequently seen include lion, leopard, wild dog, kudu, waterbuck, red lechwe, eland, impala, roan, buffalo and warthog.
