Kwara Camp, Kwando Safaris

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!

Kwara - Reviews

Kwara was a good place to start off.  We were fortunate in having George as our driver/guide - mature, very well informed about all the wildlife and with a good sense of humour.  As there were four of us we mostly went on drives on our own with George and a spotter, although the camp was full.  The rest of the staff were very helpful and friendly.  The accommodation was very adequate and certainly a far cry from our first safari experience in 1985, with electric light, running water and flushing loos now!  The food was fine - although the  Christmas turkey was the size of an average chicken and meant to feed about 20 of us!  Plentiful wine and all sorts of spirits though.

We enjoyed the dance/singing routine before dinner (twice), which was just as much for the staff's benefit as the punters'.
There were plenty of animals to see - lots of lion, elephants, giraffe etc. at close range to the camp and, of course, loads of birds.  The river safari was good once they had got the boat working and fortunately the punters at little Kwara (friends of Matthew's) came to our rescue several times when the boat stalled!
