Khwai Development Trust is located in the heart of the Botswana wilderness, located to the north of Moremi Game Reserve and to the south of Chobe National Park, it serves as not only one of the country’s best managed Community Based Natural Resource Management Programs but also a perfect stop over when traveling between the two national reserves.
The Trust was founded in April 2000, and represents the interests of the community of the Khwai Village, through the Trust the community has been empowered to play an active role in the sustainable use of natural resources whilst ensuring that the benefits from the tourism activities that take place in the area are distributed to all households and residents.
Outside of the income generated by its tourism activities, the Trust builds houses for destitute members of the village, it also contributes a monthly stipend to the elderly that exceeds the government pension payout. It pays annual dividends to its members. In addition to the work the trust undertakes with the community, it also assists in the day to day occurrences that come with living in such a remote wilderness area, by transporting the sick and elderly to Maun when needed and assisting families during extreme times such as funerals.
