An intimate camp overlooking a natural water pan that draws abundant wildlife

Hyena Pan offers a private and personal safari experience set in the wildlife-dense 200.000 ha Khwai Private Reserve. The camp’s 8 tents are set up high amongst a grove of cathedral mopane trees and overlook a natural water pan that draws plenty of wildlife, especially elephants. Visit the underground hide for unbelievable photo ops and go on a game drive to spot predators, plains game and more. Then, slow down in the open-air boma, dining deck and lounge area, and watch the lit waterhole before retiring to your solar-powered tent equipped with all the essentials. Acknowledging the part eco-tourism plays in wilderness protection, Natural Selection offers the opportunity to support various conservation efforts while overnighting here.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Botswana

Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.


Hyena Pan Tent (Twin)

The 8 Hyena Pan Twin Tents all come with 2 three-quarter beds, and 3 can be converted into king-sized beds. Children 6 and older are welcome at the camp and the tents accommodate a maximum of 2 adults. Other amenities include an en-suite bathroom, a fan, charging facilities, and a veranda with a seating area.
