Great experience in the Delta

Kwara camp is in a beautiful setting on the water with the opportunity for great wildlife viewing from the deck of your tent.

We loved our Guide Robby and Tracker Master who spent extra time tracking cheetah and lion for us, and looking for sitatunga on our boat trip. The boat trip through the Delta was a highlight -- its nice to have some variety from the game drives. Only improvement here could be in the food, both in variety and quality.

Loved all the staff and the camp had some interesting characters visiting as well.

Kwara Camp review

This was the first Safari that we have been on and although we had read up on it before we went, our expectations were exceeded in all respects.

Our guide Dix, was excellent and good fun. We saw - lions, cheetah, leopard, wild dogs to name a few.

We loved sitting around the camp fire (bush TV) after dinner chatting to the other guests.

The thing that probably impressed us most was how friendly all of the staff were.

Kwara Camp review

Game drives really good and saw loads.

Guide (Robbie) v good

Water safari a real treat with driver KP

Very hot when we were there (42+) so absence of any mechanism to cool down was the only real drawback

We liked this camp as it is very natural (elephants in camp etc)

Staff v good

Great remote Camp

A great location in Africa. But who knew it would be so cold at night.

Thick blankets were provided and it was a very comfortable stay in such a remote area.

Kwara Camp review

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Kwara very much.

Our guide Dix and the tracker worked together very well. The tent was very comfortable and we loved being able to lay there and see out at night. We had a little trouble getting warm water to last long enough to shower, but that was OK. We liked having the campfire in the morning. Unfortunately the day we did our mokoro it was quite windy, and we had to head back early.

All in all, we had a great time.

Kwara Camp review

This is a lovely camp. The accommodation is slightly older and less grand than in Lagoon but perfect for a three day stay - in fact it felt more authentic.

We had an excellent stay here - great game drives seeing a lot of different animals and birds with extremely knowledgeable guide and tracker. Their willingness to track and find interesting animals was great and included a number of lions, leopards, hyenas and a pack of wild dogs. At times the drives were exhilarating as we raced through the bush in an attempt to both find and then keep up with the animals! we also went on a river trip and out in open canoes which again were great experiences. Food and hospitality were excellent with nothing being too much trouble.

During our stay we learned about the ethos and approach to environmental and conservation issues in Botswana and by Kwando camps themselves and were very impressed with the commitment of the staff we met to this ethos.

First visit to the Okavanga

It was interesting to stay in a different terrain from the other Kwando Camps. The highlight was the visit to the newly discovered wild dog den with sixteen pups, and we also saw around a hundred elephants on one evening drive.

Like Lagoon, the emphasis seemed to be on predators and we spent several hours on abortive hunts for lions.

The evening river boat trip was very enjoyable, as was the Makoro on the lagoon.
