Kwara Camp is a really great camp set in a lovely area of the Okavango. What we really love about Kwando is their dedication to the client experience. They focus so much on the quality of their guides and providing a real safari atmosphere in camp that they have become incredibly well regarded by safari connoisseurs. The location is just as good and with easy access to main river channels of the Okavango they have the full range of activities on offer. We do prefer Little Kwara as the camp is just that little bit more intimate… but we have always loved Kwara!
Kwara Camp - The Details
Kwara Camp is located on the enormous Kwara concession in the North-East of the Okavango Delta. The camp is only as 20 to 40 minute flight from Maun depending on the routing of the aircraft. The airstrip is about a 15 minute game drive from the camp.
The main area of the camp is split into 3 sections. There is the dining room where communal meals take place. Opposite the dining room is the lounge where you can relax after a long day out in the bush, play board games and read books, and in front of both areas is a sandy fire area with camp chairs round a fire, looking over the lagoon.
The teak furniture created by Zimbabwean master craftsmen is elegant, comfortable and simple. Most of the tents are raised on teak decks to afford views over the surrounding plains and lagoon with the resident hippos. The camp consists of 8 luxury tents accommodating 16 guests. There is one honeymoon suite with a bath. The rooms are not in-your-face luxury but are extremely comfortable and quality and have everything you need.
Kwando Safaris was founded to give their guests a true African safari – just what you would expect - but more. Kwando have custom designed vehicles to make your drives super comfortable and most of all, each vehicle has a tracker and a guide. Here you can also night drive, do walking safaris, mokoro trips and boat trips.
The Kwara concession is regarded as one of the most diverse areas of the Delta, offering superb variety between different habitats. Because of this it attracts some excellent animal numbers and a large range of species. Most of all, it is great for predators!
