Hyena Pan is situated in a private conservancy – Khwai Private Reserve. This 200 000 hectare conservancy falls within the Okavango Delta World Heritage Site, and borders Moremi Game Reserve, the Khwai River and Chobe National Park. A highlight is spending a night on a sky bed a little way away from the from camp. The ‘sky bed’ is an elevated and luxurious sleeping platform set with a view over water.
The camp, which overlooks the Hyena Pan is in a forest of Cathedral Mopane and is just 12km north of the Khwai River. The Theatre of animals visiting Hyena Pan will amaze and delight you, visible from a choice of vantage points in camp. The rains, which fall from December to March fill the many pans around camp and throughout the forest. As these pans shrink during the dry season, March through to late November, water is pumped from solar powered boreholes to ensure a constant supply of water. This water source provides amazing private game viewing opportunities all year round.
The permanent tents offer spacious comfortable accommodation with en-suite facilities. The safari tents offer twin beds, bedside tables, solar powered lighting, table and chairs to relax and enjoy the view and a closet to hang your clothes. The tents have en-suite toilet and hot showers. Built in mosquito nets on all doors and windows to keep out the unwanted insects.
Hyena Pan boasts an underground hide, a ground level, hidden view point, positioned facing an extremely private and special waterhole within our private concession area. Spectacular photographic opportunities from ground level are there for the patient, absolute quiet and absolute privacy – a very unique experience awaits at this amazing venue. Elephant frequent this water source, as do Kudu and Roan Antelope. Giraffe and Warthog are regular visitors, whilst Buffalo and Eland are more special visitors. An afternoon spent in this tranquillity is a rare treat.
Elevation options are also available; take an afternoon or a morning ‘atop’ one of our 5 meter high semi-thatched elevated platforms. View the regular visitors of elephant and antelope from one of these elevated platforms; a pack tea taken along makes the experience complete. Although for the slightly more adventurous, a night out sleeping under the Milky Way in all its glory, with mosquito nets and the full African sky is an added option. Each deck comes with twin beds and ablution facilities.
A special feature of this private concession is the ability to walk; relaxed and informative game walks are an option to Hyena Pan guests. Exhilarating emotions surge through the walker as the opportunity to walk up, within a safe distance, of animals and birds who call Hyena Pan home becomes a reality.
