Brand new in 2019, Kwara is now the flagship camp for the Kwando group… and it shows.

It is still a bush camp and in keeping with the company’s philosophy that it’s the the wildlife experience which matters most, they have managed to include some great styling.

The point here is that in this region there has been a lodge for many years, and it really is one of the best wildlife concessions in Botswana.

With added comfort levels, this camp is going to be hard to beat.

Wildlife

This area shares a similar region to the northern area of the Moremi Game Reserves and you could argue that the Kwara concession dominates the central to northern area of the Delta. Ads such its is the incredible array of wildlife habitat which dictates what can =be seen here.

You will definitely find elephants here but perhaps not in the huge numbers you can see in the Chobe or Linyanti areas. The same can be said of buffalo eve though large herds are often seen here. With these beast come the predators with lion, hyena, leopard being especially prevalent. The Kwara area is also know for good sighting of cheetah and sometimes wild dogs.

Plains game is abundant here, sightings are especially enriched by Red Lechwe in the waterways and also the beautiful sable antelope.

With some of the lagoons ion the area being approachable by boat, Kwara has been very fortunate over a number of years to witness huge heronries where many birds are happy to nest, this is truly one spectacle not to be missed and a real feature of the Okavango Delta.

The Camp

Camp Overview

Kwara sits on the beautiful lagoon of the original site, and is a larger and more luxurious camp than its predecessor.

The décor of Kwara pays homage to the authentic African style of Kwando Safaris, and has 9 canvas tents. Each tent has a spacious deck overlooking the lagoon, an ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and a gorgeous bath – all of which have views out to the floodplains. There is a ceiling fan in the room and mosquito nets around the beds.

Like other Kwando properties, Kwara offers a digital detox experience (no wifi, no cell phone connectivity) allowing guests to truly enjoy and embrace the natural setting of the camp.

All activities will be accompanied by a guide and tracker. However unlike other Kwando Safaris camps, all 9-seater vehicles take a maximum of 4 guests. They operate game drives (off-road and at night), walking safaris, mokoros, boat cruises, and seasonal fishing. 

Lodge Layout

The main area of the camp, sits in the centre of the camp, has a dining area, lounge and curio shop. Kwara also has 2 small pool areas at each end of the camp providing guests with more private lounge areas.

Each poolside has a small bar and pool loungers for guests to enjoy the afternoon siesta period. There is one additional pilot/guide tent of a lesser standard than the other guest tents.

Camp Environment

Overlooking a secluded lagoon in the northern Okavango Delta, Kwara offers the ultimate Delta experience. Its location allows access to the permanent waterways of the Delta as well as expansive dry land areas, admired for their quality game viewing.

Kwara offers, within the exclusive concession in which it is located, a wide variety of activities. In addition to game drives, both day and night, the camp offers mokoro trips, as well as fishing (spinning equipment is provided but fly fisherman need to bring their own equipment). Boat trips are on a double-decker boat that visits the Godikwe Lagoon in the waters of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is known for the abundant varieties of birdlife especially during nesting season.

Kwara is known for its consistent sightings of predators, including lion, cheetah, leopard and on rare occasion – white rhino! Herds of elephants also frequent the area, as well as giraffe, zebra, sitatunga, lechwe, impala and hippos.
