An authentic bush camp on a permanent lagoon in the Okavango Delta, Kwara brings guests close to nature with superb wildlife viewing in traditional safari style. On a huge private concession adjacent to Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve, the location is ideal both for exciting game drives on the expansive savannah seeking out predators and plains game, and tranquil boat excursions to explore the permanent waterways and prolific bird life. Kwando Safaris are well-known by safari connoisseurs for their experienced guide and tracker teams dedicated to providing the fullest safari experience with both day and night drives.
Shaded by tall mangosteen and ebony trees, the eight en-suite canvas tents are cozy and comfortable, a big bed taking up most of the bedroom area and looking out through screened windows at the green forest or over the lagoon, and a private verandah for sitting out and soaking up the sounds of the bush or watching a passing elephant. The en-suite bathroom has twin vanities, flush toilet and an open air shower inside a fenced enclosure, and the honeymoon tent also has a bathtub. Electrical charging points are available in the main area.
The lounge and dining room is beautifully furnished with elegant and simple, hand-made teak furniture making a comfortable area to relax between game drives and enjoy the generous communal meals, breakfast, brunch, tea and dinner. Then there’s a swimming pool overlooking the lagoon and a fire-pit for convivial evenings of storytelling.
One of the most diverse areas of the Okavango Delta, the Kwando concession provides plenty of excitement on the extensive game drives, with trackers seeking our predators, from lion to cheetah and wild dogs as well as smaller creatures such as the rare honey badger. Mokoro excursions are ideal for exploring the water, see hippos and elephant up close and see a myriad of bird-life and tiny painted reed frogs. There’s the option of fishing too and eating your catch for dinner.
With friendly hospitality, great guides and a close to nature, old-world Africa atmosphere, Kwara is ideal for those looking for an authentic safari experience with plenty of predator action.
