North of Moremi, Little Kwara is the sister-camp of nearby Kwara Camp. Both camps share the 1,750km² private Kwara reserve, where the diversity of the environments is reflected in both the wide range of activities possible – both land and water year-round - and the big game found here. Little Kwara is much newer and smarter than its bigger sister; and completely separate, although they’re about five minutes drive apart.
Our view of Little Kwara
Little Kwara is a comfortable camp, quite smart even with very large, nicely designed rooms. The service is probably a little less refined than in other more expensive or stylish camps, but the managers and staff are friendly and often go out of their way to be helpful. We like the fact that this camp which is owned by Botswanans, is also run and staffed by Botswanans.
But for us, it’s all about the guiding, the area and game-densities which really shine here. We’ve always admired the enthusiasm of the guides at Little Kwara. They’ll tirelessly track their quarry; usually with a penchant for big cats. The flip side of this is that sometimes it means they lose sight of the little things. So we’d suggest making sure you try and get in one of the other activities which – by their nature - are usually less focused on the big game.
Having said that, on one of our visits we had morning mekoro excursion and we got back to camp with plenty of time to spare before our flight. So our guide suggested we hop in a vehicle and go out on a game drive.
This camp will appeal to travellers who are particularly enthusiastic about getting out into the bush as much as possible. And because of the variety of environments and activities, Little Kwara could work very well for visitors who have time to only visit one camp in the Delta; or it could be combined with either a dry or wet area camp to give a more extensive Botswana safari experience.
