Khwai (formerly known as North Gate) is a group of sites in the Moremi Game reserve. The area is well known for it's extensive variety of animals and the San Bushmen, who have a growing community nearby. Campsites are grouped together with their own fireplaces but sharing two ablution blocks with solar lights and ensuite showers and toilets. In 2010 new ablution blocks were erected at the campsite. The campsites are not fenced, be alert. Reservations must be made in advance and paid at the Maun Office of the S.K.L. Group of Camps (Mapula lodge).

“Camped at Khwai - Northgate in February 2016. Ablutions were kept spotless and in full working order. The campsites were also clean and maintained daily. Our experience was superb. The community were welcoming and warm. Game though was rather sparse but then that's just what it was at that time. Great experience.” - Charles Becker, 2016/04/30
“In 2010 new ablusion blocks were erected at the campsite.” - Mietsie Visser, 2012/04/11
“The site is under trees on the banks of the river Khwai but is infested by a troop of well fed vervet monkeys. The two ablution blocks have flush toilets but are sadly in need of renovation which could be coming soon.” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
