A great stay at Kwara Camp.

Another very welcoming and beautifully positioned camp. The 'tents' were fantastic and offered beautiful views as well as close up experiences of elephants, hippos and wart hogs.

Our guide, IP and spotter KB were both very knowledgable and fun to be with. Very good numbers of game spotted and excellent fishing! Always found the most beautiful locations for sundowners and KB wins the prize for making the best G n T!

Lovely location

Another very warm welcome with a variety of activities which was good. Enjoyed the fishing and the boat trip.

Again there was the long table with all eating together which gave opportuiy to meet other guests and chat to staff.

Kwara Camp review

Our guides everywhere in Botswana were very knowledgeable and professional but Tom at Kwara was outstanding.

We enjoyed the game drives with him and loved the mokoro trip and walking safari. Kwara has excellent camp facilities.

Best time at Kwara

This is an old camp which is showiing its age. Actually I enjoyed this camp the best of the whole trip, but my tent could have had cleaner straw mats on the floor. Also the water comes from a bore hole here and it is very brown. Although I was warned about not drinking it it would have been useful to know about the staining as to begin with I thought that the loo in my tent was dirty. I did also have drain problems, but they were fixed promptly and with no hassle.

The camp is on a private reservie so going off road and night driving were great. The guide and spotter, IP and Justice, were the best of the trip, with everything being pointed out. I saw lots of lion here, new varieties of game( warthog, hyena, tsessebe, red lechwe, genet, african wild cat, python amongst others) and excellent birds. As well as game drives I went on a boat trip in the Delta (saw lots of hippos) a jungle walk and in a mokoro - where again we saw lots of hippo: one so close we had to take evasive action.

This is a great camp for people who are serious about seeing the wildlife. The staff were friendly and very welcoming and although certain things could be immproved it would be a great shame if it were tarted up too much.

Kwara Camp review

Everything was lovely. We really enjoyed getting back to the Bush. Guides/trackers- Bali and Baruti excellent. `Service friendly. Food disappointing. There was plenty of it but the cooks were not very good. Having been to many different safari camps, and understanding the logistical problems of running a camp in the Bush, this was the worse for food, in our experience. The tents were basic (which we loved) and we had an elephant almost at the end of our bed on the first night!!

Due to the time of the year of our trip, Fishing was not available and Mokoro's were not encouraged, so apart from a boat trip to see Hippo, we were only really offered safari by jeep. However, they were fantastic!

Kwara Camp

Best place for game drives as you can go off road and at night. Excellent guides.

Tents could use a makeover but nice all the same.

Kwara Camp review

Cats, cats and more cats! In fact, that is pretty much all we saw, which was a wonderful contrast to our other camps. Every day people at the camp had new and exciting stories of things they had seen.

Fantastic boat trips but the contrast with being able to go by jeep across the plains, due to it being dry season, made it for us.

Luxurious rooms, with great views. Extremely friendly staff. More of a 'tyring to please the punters' place than some of the other camps, but if that's why you've come to Botswana, then that's no bad thing!

Kwara Camp review

A very friendly camp with lovely staff who made us very welcome. The driver and tracker were enthusiastic and knowledgable. In common with other camps they tended to concentrate on big game while we were sometimes interested in stopping for birds and smaller wildlife but we suspect this is what most visitors want. We did often have a 'sunalreadydowner' as they tracked something big.

Overall the game viewing was very good and we had a couple of very close encounters with lions, a hippo who made it clear he did not like us so close when we were in a mokoro and the tracker made a spectacular jump from the spotting seat to the safety of the truck when we nearly ran over a 8 foot black mamba. All very memorable stuff.

The food and drink were very good considering this is a bush camp. Lots of bottled water is consumed but one really needs plenty of liquids in the heat. Hopefully the empty bottle are recycled.

The only quibble was that our tent (number 6) did not seem very insect proof, as at night we had plenty of wildlife in the tent if the light was on.
