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 as Splash Camp, and you could argue that the Kwara concession dominates the central to northern area of the Delta. It 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, even though large herds are often seen here. With these beasts 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 in 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.

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. 

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.
