Situated on a forested island, and shaded by large trees overlooking floodplains and a seasonal lagoon in the Okavango Delta, Kwara Camp has the style of a fairly traditional safari camp. It offers its guests year-round land and water activities: big-game-viewing plus access to permanent channels of the Okavango Delta. Stop press 27 March 2015 - News from the camp regarding mokoro excursions at Kwara Camp. "Due to exceptionally low rain fall during the last few months, Botswana is threatened by drought. Although the water in the Okavango Delta actually comes from rainfall in the Angolan highlands, it is normally replenished during the summer season by localised rain. Without this additional rain, the lagoons and waterways reduce in size. This particularly affects the prime mokoro areas – open areas of shallow water, including floodplains. Naturally, this also affects the animals that live in the water, such as hippos: as their habitat decreases in size, their comfort zone also decreases. In order not to place any unnecessary pressure on the hippos, and to ensure the safety of our staff and guests, we have decided to suspend mokoro activities at Kwara and Little Kwara camps until water levels increase. Hopefully this will be resumed within a few weeks, as the Angola flood waters arrive. Boat activities, which are in the in the permanent deep water channel are not affected by this."
Our view of Kwara Camp
Kwara is a relatively simple safari camp with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It’ll suit those who are keen on seeing the big predators to the exclusion of smaller wildlife, and are happy to forgive their fairly traditional tents which prioritise the necessities, rather than the trimmings. Given that, it’s in a great area with excellent game densities and often delivers really great predator sightings.
