Kwara camp review

We loved our guide - his assurance, sense of adventure, and bush wisdom, and the great rapport between him and his assistant/tracker. It rained a lot but we went out on activities undeterred and had great fun.

Also loved the more indigenous feel of the camp, with its elephants in the garden!

Would be nice if the camp had more sitting/lounge facilities - sometimes there simply wasnt space for all the guests to be in that single lounge space at once.

Great Safaris at Kwara Camp

Lovely, traditional camp although the tents are smaller and little more cramped especially with the additional bed. Lovely staff and good food. Our guide, Russ, and tracker, Master, worked very well together especially when driving through the bush and provided some wonderful sightings including two young Leopards up a tree, a Lioness with an eight week old cub and an African Wild Cat in daylight.

Excellent safari at Kwara

I very much enjoyed staying at Kwara camp. The tents had everything you could need while still retaining something of an'Old Africa' feel.

Guiding was good and we saw cheetah, elephant ,lion and much more. The guide (George) was a good communicator.

I was able to take a short mokoro trip and a walk.

The camp was well organised and well run and service and food were both excellent.

Kwara Camp review

i was interested in seeing Leopard and as there had been a kill we went back several times to see if we could find it/them. in fact we did not see the mother, but did see the cub briefly at night, and it was marvellous. Our viewing might have been longer but unfortunately, whilst I realise it is common practice to share sightings, the next jeep arrived at the spot at high speed and so caused the leopards to move away.

Still, the only 3 vehicles at any sighting, and not following any predator which is clearly stalking prey, seemed excellent rules, and we appreciated the care the trackers and spotters take of their wildlife.

The rooms are fine, although a little more rustic than some camps, but the food was good and I would not worry about any tripadvisor reports to the contrary. The staff are fabulous and Hilda was a star, always cheerful and kind and considerate of the dietary needs of the diabetic in our group.

Rooms were in need of updating but did not spoil this fantastic camp.

Driver George and spotter Josiah were a joy to get to know and incredibly knowledgeable, also great fun. Would go back anytime.

Kwara Camp review

Whilst the accommodation is not of the quality of Little Kwara the quality of the guiding and the experience is not affected.

Besides again seeing abundant elephant, antelope, hippo and co we were fortunate enough to have good sightings of wild dogs, jackel, mongooses, cheetah and even a distant sighting of a honey badger. The guide and tracker went to great lengths to meet our request for cheetah and lion hich they succeeded in meeting.

We've deceided that we should get up earlier because we missed wild dogs hunting an impala in sight of the camp. The impala escaped into the lake only to be killed by one of the resident crocodiles, all within view of some of the guests. We also go to bed too early as one evening whilsts guests were sitting round the camp fire one of the elephants joined them forcing them to stay up even longer drinking their delicious Amarula!

Keara Camp-great Memories, Great Sightings

We feel most fortunate to have launched our Safari experience at Kwara.

The staff was excellent. Our Guide Bate and Tracker KP were quite a team. Our Safari drives covered various areas. We had a lagoon boat ride to the Godikwe herony and got great pictures. We traveled in a mokoro to an Island walk. We even saw the seldom seen Sitatunga.

On our last day we were treated to a brunch by a Hippo pond. Unbelievable. Such memories!

Kwara

Kwara is the oldest camp we visited and it shows it's age in places but we still enjoyed it very much. Which may explain why it was also the busiest camp we visited being fully occupied while we were there.

Our tracker KP and our guide TJ did a great job finding the animals we most wanted to see, big cats and wild dogs. The highlight was the wild dog hunt which was excellent! We missed the moment of the kill but it was still exciting and amazing. The mokoro ride and nature walk were also very interesting with TJ teaching us about the termites and also the animals in the area.

Our favorite spot in camp was the sofa overlooking the lagoon where we sat and watched the birds and animals that passed by. It was a perfect place to complete our African adventure.
